Quote:
Six new games added to the site. The games are: Bouncing Babies, Depth Dwellers, Dungeons of Death, Hangtetris, Spear of Destiny (demo) and Turbo Trek. Many of these games are virtually unknown and a few are not currently available anywhere else on the web (that I know of) so check 'em out. As always you can read my oh-so-insightful reviews and download 'em all by visiting the Newest Additions page. Hope you like 'em!


As always, if you notice any mistakes, please post 'em in this thread, in order to shame me publicly by pointing out my blatant incompetence Wink

Also, I added a few obscure and/or low rated games during this update. I have bunches more on Wally's CDs as well as some user submitted ones I haven't looked at yet, but if there are some freeware/shareware/demo games that you think are really obvious choices but aren't on the site yet, please do suggest them in this thread. Thanks! (BTW, a list of all the games on the site is available on the Game Index page.)

Ha ha, Depth Dwellers! I remember that game from 10 years ago... never thought I'd see it again.

I have search and destroy demo on here somewhere... Unfortunately, its on a CD that has 1 install file for 12 games, so getting just 1 is impossible. Sweet game tho.

Isn't that the one where you can take a Tank or Apache Strike Helicopter and blow the shit out of everything in sight? If so, I loved it... though I thought Epic Games released it?

Dudes, its called "Seek and Destroy" ... that explains why I was having so much trouble finding info about this game Sarcastic

I found the demo version here:

ftp://mirrors.aol.com/mir04/EPICGAMES/pub/safari/SEEKSW1.ZIP

It downloaded insanely fast for me from that AOL mirror! Or you can get it from here:

http://ftp.se.kde.org/pub/games/PC/gamesdomain/shareware/epic/seeksw1.zip

Haven't tested it yet but I will for the next update. Benevolent

Shoot, didn't notice that he said "search & destroy". I perfectly knew it was called seek and destroy as me and wardrich spent some time trying to find the full version to no avail.

Aye... it was a HORRIBLE failure. Couldn't find a torrent, or a straight DL. You'll just have to settle with the demo Crying
