This is a rather fun dungeon crawling RPG that I believe is an offshoot from the Shining Force series. I've been playing it on Steam and was using this site's dungeon mapper to draw out the maps for this game as I went along. Wanted to submit my work to the site, but it seems if the game isn't featured on the site, I can't pick it as the game the map belongs to and thus can't publish it. Either that or there's something else I'm not seeing. *shrugs*
Either way, I'd say it's worth adding to the site. It's a nice game to introduce someone to dungeon crawlers, since it doesn't throw anything too off the wall at you at any point in the game (at least, nothing a decently prepared party can't deal with).
Whale's Voyage is one of the least well-known sci-fi RPGs. A mixture between Elite and Dungeon Master.
Unfortunately Whale's Voyage 2 was only released in german, but I have a modified english version. Unfortunately I can't run it because it's a DOS game.
I would really love to see Dark Earth here... I find no way to play it with my limited knowledge of emulation, but it's an excellent game with great atmosphere. Is there a possibility you'll add it to the collection?
I don't see Mindscape 1992 game "Legend" :
Could you add it please?
Also I think we shouldn't forget about "Knights" (gee they had no imagination with such genuine names):
On this page you will find remake for Windows, links to original Amiga files should be there too.
How about including these 3 classics on your site, DJ?
MECHWARRIOR 2 - The great classic in "giant mech combat" (a genre which has long been abandoned in gaming, unfortunately). And it seems GOG isn't much interested in putting this classic for sale on their site. :(
PROTOSTAR - The great classic of space trade gaming. The unnoficial sequel to "Starflight2".
WHALE'S VOYAGE - A space exploration/trading game.
Sorry to ask again, but I just discovered something important I think would be great to host here:
Bard's Lore (http://bardstale.brotherhood.de/talefiles/cs/files/index.html) - downloads/manual/cluebook/maps available there
They seem to be the only big decent 'games' to come out of the Bard's Tale Construction Set, I'm pretty sure if you copied the files into a folder already containing the BTCS files, it will run. Not sure about Bard's Lore 2 though. These look super rare and seem difficult to manually get working with DOSBox, so it would be great to have them both here to download.
Never played this, but it looks like a cool first-person action-y RPG, and it has made by Origin Systems on an early version of the DOOM engine. I'd really like to check this out and it would be awesome to have it here.
Is there any chance of getting the Apple 2gs version of Neuromancer (http://www.oldgames.sk/en/game/neuromancer/) here in a self-run package with Kegs emulator like Bard's Tale 1/2 and Dragon Age are here?
You can get the rom here:
I'm searching for an old game which I played on win 95 or 98 like 10 years ago.
A game like this was built in the windows 95 or 98, you were with a spider, and your enemy was a snake. The goal was to outflank with the spider a particular percent of the map. If the snake hit you, you died, if crossed your path behind you, then cut the line and your flankink was unsuccsesful.
So the game that I looking for is just like this, except that there was more types of enemies, I gas you were not with a spider either, but the basic idea was the same. The backgrounds were different colors on other levels. That's what I remember now. I want to find it to my girlfriend it was a dimond for she. You whould make her so happy :)
Please help me.
Thanks so much for all your brilliant work,this is my fav new site.
If i may be so bold i have few requests;
From the same company who made the Ripper-which was a pain in the ass to run on modern systems until i saw your release.
Game can be found around but it's really hard to run it on XP,could you release a package like Ripper for this one too?
One of the greatest games of all time but to my knowledge it's impossible to run on modern systems and game is a really big rarity it would be a great addition here.
4.New Adventures of the Time Machine
There is a 4 page manual available about 'how to run it on modern systems' but i still failed on my both attempts,when it got released game got great reviews so it would be nice to see it here with one of your packages.
Hopefully you have the time to go thru your archives if not still thanks a lot for all your wonderful work don't think it's taken for granted,Take Care.
Is their any chance of getting this great cRPG series here? It's definetely abandonware, and I found this semi-official website which offers all the manuals/covers/patches/documentation etc:
It would be awesome if we could have simple set-up exe's with all the patches etc installed, apparently the games were quite bugged at release. We already have "Bloodstone" here on oldgames, which is part of the Magic Candle series:
Feeels so bad knowing that I got rid of this game many,many years ago..Now I regret it...lol Is there a CD-ISo format of this on OldGames?? I can't seem to get DosBox going on my Windows 7, 64 bit..SO, at least with the CD-ISO format I can mount it and play. Much appreciated if anyone has any versions of Front Page Sports Football in CD-ISO format. Thank you.
early/mid 90s MS-DOS PC First-Person Action/Racing - 3D landscape, 2D sprites (eight-sided enemy vehicles and infantry)
the player moves level per level in a buggy-tank-like vehicle through an arena, and can exit the vehicle to walk around on foot too, to reach areas of the map that are inaccessible by vehicle. Some maps contain a replacement-vehicle that could be used "with the same life" when the first car got destroyed or too damaged.
What i recall of the gameplay was basically just killing everything to fetch keys to get to other areas and eventually exit the arena to proceed to the next one - I don't recall the player on foot having different weapons but I think the vehicle has numerous kinds of armament.
it wasn't thaaaat great of a game, but entertaining ... i guess it mostly bothers me that i cannot recall the title - i'm sorry if this it the wrong place to ask for such.
I'd love to get the old Battlezone games published by Activision back in '98 and '99.. As far as I'm concerned these were some of the best games to combine FPS and RTS gameplay, and I still wish we had more games like this today.
Just for reference, here are the wiki pages for these games:
Hi everyone. I have been visiting this site and I think it's great because I've never been able to run by myself dosbox and configure it properly. There is a game, Magic The Gathering, which is from 1997, that can be played without dosbox but it runs quite fast making it unplayable, and I have read that with dosbox the game runs great in every computer. I don't think the game is being sold anymore.
