    Just popping in to say I really enjoyed the Hadrosaurus interview. I am saving the podcast episode until I played the game this weekend – I’d like to experience it spoiler free!

    Welcome to the forums @sky76, nice to meet you!

    in reply to: Which DOS games do you have on your Topsters 25 list? #7946

    What fun is this?

    Nice Top 25 @jefklak! I see your console versions, makes sense they superseded the DOS versions – some games are just better with a game controller.

    I see we have quite a few in common @TigerQuoll 🙂

    I never gravitated toward the flight sims @Pix, but I totally understand the appeal of them! Now the adventure games I get completely.

    My top 25 just so happens to contain mostly DOS games. These are in no particular order.

    If there was one game I would be stranded with for the rest of time, it would have to be DooM – the original 1993 and it’s sequel the following year.

    1. Doom
    2. Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness
    3. The Secret of Monkey Island
    4. Stunts
    5. Prince of Persia
    6. Heretic
    7. Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty
    8. The Legend of Kyrandia
    9. Grim Fandango
    10. Lost Pig (And Place Under Ground)
    11. Wolfenstein 3D
    12. Dune
    13. Bio Menace
    14. Duke Nukem I
    15. Carmageddon
    16. King ‘s Quest I: Quest for the Crown
    17. Simon the Sorcerer
    18. Beneath a Steel Sky
    19. Diablo I
    20. Quake I
    21. Police Quest I: In Pursuit of the Death Angel
    22. Sid Meier’s Civilization I
    23. Monster Bash
    24. Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?

    Ooh yay! I am excited for Lemmings 😁

    in reply to: Things to Watch Out For #7909

    Those are great tips, thanks Mike.

    I save a new slot at the start of each chapter, and use f9/f10 to quick save/load in between action. Quick save uses slot 0, which is not listed in the menu, so it won’t overwrite your last slot-save.

    in reply to: Magazine Reviews #7882

    Thanks for those scans @Pix!

    I haven’t played ROTH before but am looking forward to it! I bought a copy from GOG.com and read other magazine reviews, which can be found on the wiki[1].

    Also noteworthy is an unofficial fan site[2] I came across. It provides maps, a walkthrough and other bits of interest. I tip my hat to it’s owners who have kept it online since 2002!

    Thanks Spoonboy!
    Funny you should say that, episode #79 inspired me to try Alien Legacy. Had a blast with that game!
