CUE format supports data and audio tracks mixed within the same BIN image file (of course the audio is uncompressed this way). DOSBox supports audio from the BIN file as well as from external files, based on whatever the CUE specifies.
Every major 3D shooter in the DOS era had secret levels. Wolfenstein 3D, DOOM, Heretic, Duke Nukem 3D, Quake – all had one per episode. Games that were not split to episodes (Spear of Destiny, DOOM II, Descent) had a couple as well; Hexen basically had one secret level per hub. It was like a mandatory element of the design. 🙂
I think I got it as a freebie from the computer / D&D magazine I was subscribed to at the time. I didn’t like it one bit.
Based on the release dates, both MK and MK2, as well as SF2 were already available on the PC before Rise of the Robots got released, with MK3 and SSF2T coming not far behind. Not difficult to see why nobody would really want to play this game.
Well, F is what you are supposed to use. ESDF is ESDF for a reason – once you get used to it, it’s very convenient to have all the action buttons close by.
It’s the same control scheme used for Lost Vikings, which I played first, and I too started off by using Spacebar, until I figured out that it is actually holding me back, and switched over to F. By the time I got to Blackthorne, it was ESDF all the way. 🙂
Which is why I hate that the updated Blizzard release makes you use both.
I actually play all original DOOM and Build engine games with keyboard only, just because the mouselook is not right in them. They also don’t really require a mouse.
Source ports (Doomsday, eDuke32) are a different thing. It feels more natural to use mouse + WASD there.
While not being generally an adventure/quest type player, I’ve played Simon the Sorcerer 1 and 2 pretty extensively back in the day and loved the atmosphere and humor. I never played any Monkey Island games (shame on me), but from a first glance it looks like it can be very similar, and I might enjoy it as well. Probably need to set up the Talkie Edition first…
