Mr. Marconis, welcome to the forums! We will certainly appreciate any release of your games you may deem fit to make publicly available.

That's awesome, Mr Marconis. Why did you make a videogame for learning C++? So much graphic stuff to do. I'm learning C# myself.

Cheese-its & Rice!hehe

Nice to meet another developer.

Makes you feel strengthened to continue on when there seems no hope.

Thank you.

Dear DOS-Friends,

I am looking for an old game called "Parsifal". It is a quite simple game. You are looking on a map, control your armies (knights, archers, etc.) kill monsters (especially dragons) and you have to find and collect 7 pieces of the holy grail.


Hey, I'm the author. I still have the source code (C++) and sprites and I think the shareware and collectable executables on a box at home. I can post or send you the "Collectors Edition" in a bit if you want. Happy

Glad that you enjoyed it.

There were female warriors that I called Elazons that only blocked and pushed. The wizard characters would turn anyone into bears. I thought the spiders and fellows who hid in the dark were nice. The Collectors Edition has a bunch of different maps. Created the sprites myself. It was an EGA graphic based. I made it as an exercise to learn C++.

I had another DOS game called Lunker that was challenging. You had to mine through a 3D asteroid with various monsters and treasures and limited food, energy, oxygen.

Mark


Hey Mark - did you ever share this game? I'd love to play it again and it seems to have disappeared from the world.

Personally, I've never played this game nor even knew of its existence, yet the concept intrigues me, pieces of the Grail just lying around Laughing. Hopefully the developer is still around to share it, strange that he went quiet all of a sudden.

It has been driving me crazy for years. I can only barely remember the game because I was too young to really understand what was going on.

I played it with AlleyCat and Kingdom of Kroz and Freddies Rescue Roundup. So nostalgia. Much wow.

I'm going to hire a private detective to hunt down this game. I swear to Elazon.

Well, good luck to him, the only mention of this game is on this lone forum, nothing more, it's pitch-black darkness beyond this single ray of light Meh

I have no idea how it came to be in my cousin's hands if it was such a small thing. Must have been some kind of shareware or something.

If that is the case, chances are that it might have been part of a compilation disk or floppy. Small, obscure games are often added to shareware compilations, just to decrease costs (as opposed to a stand-alone release) and to increase chances of people trying it out. You think anything of this sort is possible?

ctarbet, just write something like "bump" or "I'm still looking for that game" to bump the thread. Random quotes from your earlier posts just look out of context and confusing.
