Yes, the Blockout - 3D tetris with vector graphics, without textures. I remember it from 286-era.
"Remember the many caverns in which you felt the pain?"
I remember playing this, but I never finished it (as with so many games).
Hehe, it's well worth it imo. Still looks, sounds and plays nice like many adventure games of that era.
You have 5 'chapters' (aka 5 very unfortunate victims) so you could play it in small chunks and in any order. (episodic gaming avant la lettre ftw.)
"It's still required playing, because it's one of the few game adaptations to significantly involve the original author, and the only graphic adventure I can think of that works towards really complex characters. And for anyone remotely interested in Harlan Ellison and adventure games, there's simply no question. Shame, really; a more polished I Have No Mouth might have hooked some people on adventure games, possibly even raised the standards of what an adventure game should be."
Did anyone mention CHAOS OVERLORDS? Brilliant, expecially with friends over LAN. It should be easy to find since its abandonware.
But theres allways worms, any version of it kind of beats crap out of scorch. Allthought napalm was nice, and that big nuke going off and destroying half o' tha level....
worms was probably there before Scorched earth or maybe at the same time? as worms was originally on the amiga, I think there was a version of Scorched earth for the amiga as well? but I would say worms was better and funnier by far, holy hand grenade, and others, its been a long time since I played a worms game, forgotten some of the weapons you can use, especially the very powerful ones, but anyway I would rank worms to be the better of the two versions
Mechanized Assault and Exploration,
great turnbased strategy game. (Interplay, 1996)
Old DOS Games
Can you guys name some DOS games you were really fond of in the 90's and 80's? What DOS games did you guys really like?
all the lucas arts/sierra adventures
Wasteland and Fallout 1
There are some great tips:
Speaking of dos games.. Anyone remeber that really old game with gorilas throwing bananas? Think you had to choose speed and angle so you would hit the opponent? Been a "few" years since i used DOS.
Hell yeah I do. Dorking around with the source code to that game was my rite of passage into the nurd-lyfe
Fuck yes, QBasic for the win.
Didn't play much when I was a kid, although I loved playing Jill of the Jungle and Dangerous Dave at a friend's house.
Prince of persia, Ski or die, Ducktales, EcoQuest, but also little gems like Alley Cat
Played Dune II a lot with a friend, re-tried it with the online version, but nostalgia-revisits aren't always all that awesome :I
Qbasic it was! Haven't touched DOS since middlescool or something.. A "few" years aga! oldman.jpg
Tyrian (2000), Prehistoric 1&2 , The Incredible Machine, Dune 2 were all little gems.

Sorry, for some reason I didn't see this when I posted my DOS forum. I could have sworn I searched thoroughly. Guess not.
EDIT: Anyone ever play Carnivores 1,2 and/or Ice Age. I can't remember if they were DOS, but they were old. Damn good games.
