    Yeah, haha, I noticed. Once you understand how to survive digging, it gets a lot better though. Then it’s mostly just quite boring ๐Ÿ˜›

    Yeah, the fact you can play levels freely is really quite modern. It’s a very impressive game, this one!

    In case you have difficulty finding the game, there’s a shareware version on archive.org: https://archive.org/details/MicrosDilemmaII_1020

    Despite being called ‘shareware’, it seems to be actually quite complete!

    Ok, this game is impossible to figure out, so I went onto YouTube and found a play through. It massively helps to learn the weird rules of this game, haha.

    Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/user/Arm4g3dd0nX/search?query=minervga

    I’ve just tried playing this game, but I don’t really get it, haha.

    Has anyone had any success with this? I’ve tried digging a bit, I’ve even been able to sell off some silver. But all in all I just seemed to burn cash and lose health until I died?

    Why do sometimes people don’t want to get into the taxi? I’ve had it a few times now that I land on a platform where people are waiting and just nothing happens?

    Yeah, this game is really daunting to get into. There are so many aspects you need to consider!

    Once you get the hang of it, it’s really great though imho. Things are very interconnected, so every decision you make influences almost all other aspects of the game.

    Oooh, I’ll have to try MoO1 then, it sounds interesting to check out.

    I must admit I quite like MoO2 now though. I’ve been playing it for the last few weeks quite a lot. At first it was quite intimidating, as there are a lot of things going on which you need to understand before you can really have any success with this game.

    What helped for me was to first play without tactical combat (which also means no ship design). This way the game is more strategic in nature and it’s mostly about managing your empire. There are still battles in this mode, but instead of going into detail, it just shows an outcome based on stats. Just like Civ really. It makes for a very streamlined experience, I really quite like that the game gives you the option to play it how you like.

    I’ve heard of people with Dosbox who had the same problems, but increasing the cycles seem to help a bit.

    I think vede had similar issues, but was able to resolve it. I’ll ask if he can share his solution.

    Thanks for all the awesome suggestions, everyone! I think we’re going to go for Wasteland for this particular occasion. A lot of people seem interested in checking that out and with the release of Fallout 76 it also seems relevant.

    But don’t think this is the last RPG we’ll ever play, so I’m sure we’ll be looking at this list again in the future ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oooh, that Mac version does look interesting.

    I’m lucky I don’t seem to have too many problems on my Dosbox, I think. Although tbh I didn’t even know about the double-tap-to-run command ๐Ÿ˜€

    Oh man, this game is so brutal. I’ve only tried it a little bit as a kid, but I never really got beyond the first room. It’s so unclear what the options are and how it all works!

    After watching how to deal with the first monster on YouTube, I sort of got the hang of it and managed to play through the starting floor tonight, even getting rid of those weird beasts that guard the staircase.

    But man, if this is just the beginning, I don’t know if I’ll manage without a walkthrough, haha.
