Hi all gamers
There is this game around few years back that I came across but unfortunately do not know the name

The content is alien capturing human and the player is to save them, one side of the panel has a small square monitor showing blue dot and red dots denoting aliens and hostage whereabout

Can anyone help me for its name ??

Thanks in advance

Regards

Hi Wardrich

Thanks for your response

I have missed out one important content is that the game play is like we are in a maze, there are hostages everywhere and aliens everywhere

When we move forward, (the screen is like those Doom type can move all directions) ; we need to pay attention to the small square monitor at one corner of the screen which shows us the positions of the hostages and aliens so that we know where we going and expect what is coming, definitely VGA and sound is also real

When we move we are not seeing a person walking but like ;looking from one's eye and the screen moves with the direction press

That's all I can recall

I'll go for my other method if I dont know what you're talking about:

Operation: Body count?

Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold?

Blake Stone: Planet strike?

Unreal Tournament 2003?

Meh, all Moraff games are a bit... querky. His DOS RPG's were great... simple, but EXTREMELY addictive. I remember playing World (the greatest game he ever wrote) and Dungeons of the Unforgiven for 3 hours every day when I was like 9... ah the memories...

Now he makes stupid windows puzzle games with none of the depth of his others. Sad

Hi

Do you guys have good recommendation especially like Speed Kar Driving type where you got a small square monitor at a corner telling you where is your enemy and where is your targets (so be it hostages or flags or doors)

Must be something like that so that you will see the info shown in the small monitor and plan your move

Thunderdog, I was thinking the same thing..with the Blakestone series. Although I don't remember hostages in the version I played..
