o Tyrian 2000: Tyrian 2000 Demo.zip

Because this version of the demo is incomplete, I've assembled a working one by adding missing files from the earlier demo and, by Litude's suggestion, TYRIAN.PIC from the Sound Blaster Live! patch. The archive with all the necessary demo files (plus a text file explaining that this is not an official distribution) is available here.

To replace French text on the sidebar in this version with the original English one, you can use this unofficial fix.

o Shareware version: pt2.zip

The site which housed the free full version of the game (http://rflxn.com/pt2/) is down and not archived by the Wayback Machine, but a working download is found here.

O-my The LORD of all hosts! How foolish I have been. Checking out the Windows version the first thing this morning makes me realize what an idiot I am? haha The graphics are pretty good. The animations and sprite movements are not like mine. Mine flickers at the present moment. However, is it fun like fakeTRON? haha

It was interesting to play and I cannot judge it other than the fact that I consider the Windows version good enough to keep on my hard drive. Whether I want to register within 30 days is another story hehe

I don't know if I want to give away my secret hiding place. After all, the Tron producers might come after me for copyright infringement hehe Of course, I am just kidding. I do not make a penny that I can see in my pocket presently. However, I am having fun and hope others do too. I guess that is the most important thing.

On the side note of registering, it might not be a bad idea because as a producer I want to know whether others appreciate my works. It is unfortunate I have not gotten the chance to check other works out quite as often as I do this day. Even looking at someone else's work once every so often is a miracle when it comes to my selfishness hehe

Well, checking out the game I decided to register officially Galactix and found out I had to pay $4.99 so I guess I have one thing over my competitors. hehe "my The LORD of all hosts" makes me give my games away freeware AND without registering!!!!!!!!!!!! However, I will give credit where credit is due and say the game does have extremely smooth graphics. I am poor and do not feel like asking my mom. However if it were free I would say it is worth it to register, BUT it is NOT free according to the license statement!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, the website is current. I guess you have to make a living somehow.

Hold up - that site is also selling Raptor: Call of the Shadows. I thought that game was released by Apogee?

Well, Mountain King Studios (formerly Cygnus Studios) are the developers of both Galactix and Raptor. Also IIRC Apogee only published the DOS version of the latter game.
