    “Death Rally has the explosive power of a safety match”. Dawwwww. That’s mean. I guess you have to look at other games that were released the same year to understand that rating. After all, Monster Truck Madness and Mario Kart 64 were released around the same time and GTA just a bit later. Clearly each of these games have better driving physics and don’t feel so clunky when you brush an obstacle.

    in reply to: Race Strategy? #1452

    Yeah, lagging behind and let everyone else empty their mags is a good tactic. I try to go for the kills afterwards. Depending on the race difficulty, you get up to six laps to destroy everyone else. That gives you the prize money for the race + a bonus from your “sponsor”, the grim reaper 🙂

    I also noticed, that the AI drives differently based on how you drive. In one race I was trying to stay behind to only pick up the wrenches because I was out of money and had a badly damaged car. But the opponents never got very far ahead despite me driving deliberately slow.

    But when you race for 1st place, they suddenly are very strong o_O

    I like to buy Armor early on to save money on repairs in the long run. I think buying Armor later has a way lower return-of-investment.

    OMG, I was unaware that there was a DOS version of Theme Hospital. I’m all for it! I had so much fun with this game back in the day 😀

    > Meanwhile, our friend rnlf acquired his own a boxed copy of the game, and made a few gameplay videos of it, on youtube, albeit without getting much further than I did.

    You’re trying everything to make me continue the playthrough, amirite?

    Oh, we also played various modern DOOM ports. Most people play on DOSBOX anyway, so this is not too far away from that.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Wow, thanks for sharing these! Especially with all the history of your dad’s copy. I love seeing such items with marks that show it was loved by someone for a long time.

    Right, I think the whole game even fits on a double density (i.e. 720K) floppy. It is indeed impressive they made all the content fit!

    It looks interesting! I am not sure many people in the club besides me actually enjoy combat flight simulators, but if we get to play another one, this one should definitely be on the short list!

    We’re planning to have a Win16 month this year. In that case, we can play it then 😀

    There’s no default. It asks you which controller you want to use :-p

    That being said, I set it to WASD + Mouse and with mouse look it almost feels like a modern shooter.

    First he has the guts to talk about the Amiga version of a game on a DOS related podcast and now this!

    Removing the strippers was not the worst idea, to be honest.

    Interesting though, that Nintendo did it when in other games of the N64 era they were not so strict with their family-friendliness – Conker comes to mind…

    “You can beat the entire game in under 30 minutes by holding down up+right+kick for endless jump kicks.” SPOILERS! 😛

    The game looks cool. We should definitely give it a try!
