dosgames.com site update September 3rd 2004

Post by emmzee » Thu Sep 02, 2004 11:50 pm

Booyah
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 <a href="http://www.dosgames.com/g_new.php">Newest Additions</a> 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 ;)

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 <a href="http://www.dosgames.com/gameindex.php">Game Index</a> 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 :rolleyes:

I found the demo version here:

ftp://mirrors.aol.com/mir04/EPICGAMES/p ... EEKSW1.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/game ... eeksw1.zip

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

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 :cry:
