There are some hilarious parts in mission 8 when you are on a conveyor belt and the imperial officers are all yelling “stop right there!” but you are on the moving conveyor wich makes it really hard to comply! Also they yell “You’re not authorized” like there’s supposed to be people on the conveyor belt just not you.March 4, 2023 at 11:47 am in reply to: First thoughts #7233
Played 5 missions so far using the force engine (because i cant be arsed to play it with archaic controls. It’s pretty for it’s time although so far the levels are not that distinctive. The missions are kind of fun although some sections that are in the dark are annoying even with the goggles or headlight (because i forget to turn them off and then when i go back my batteries are out 🙂 )March 3, 2023 at 1:40 pm in reply to: Anoat City #7220

I second Daggerfall. It is an amazing game and with the modern ways to play it like “daggerfall for unity” it is also a great experience in modern termsJanuary 19, 2023 at 10:01 pm in reply to: TheForceEngine is a great, albeit non-DOS, way to play #7078
TFE works really well, It’s a joy playing this game with modern controls!
I was just about to suggest this but luckily searched first. Wonderful game. Big well animated sprites and gallons of blood (banned in Germany, ofcourse). It could be played as 4 player multiplayer on the same computer with only two joysticks so it made for a good partygame as you chopped your friends head off and took all of their stuff. Then the dragon ate you.January 6, 2023 at 5:22 pm in reply to: King of Chicago (Cinemaware 1986) #7029
I forgot to say; the game is in the Cinemaware Anthology on Steam, both Amiga and DOS portsDecember 31, 2022 at 10:50 am in reply to: Football games for DOS #6992
I never played Allenatore but it looks interesting. Lately I have been playing a series of DOS indie games by New Era Software (Scotland). The best ones are 1-0 (or sometimes One-Nil) and Goal94. Great games from what is probably a single developer although information is hard to come by.
I think I have Tecmo boxed for the Amiga but I am not currently at home so cannot check yet.
Yes, the first FIFA ran on dos. I have it boxed, but for Amiga. Also the first three inhouse developed versions of Premier Manager run in dos (my video on that series:
Even the first fully 3D soccer game for PC, Actua Soccer, ran in dos although the sequels are in windows. (My vid on those https://youtu.be/SHIkI644pQE )
There are alot of footy games that ran in dos, also many of the German soccer games like anstoss ran in dos (I think, I played it on Amiga) https://youtu.be/E7MGbcO6b9Q
