I don't think so. When he referenced Wolfenstein I think he meant waaaay back, before it was a 3D shooter. I don't think it would look like Doom or Quake...More like Alien Syndrome. A Vertical shooter.

early 90's game - like original Wolfenstein

I'm hear asking for a friend. Here's the description he gave me...Ring any bells? "t came out somewhere around 91 or 92, I think. It (inaccurately) billed itself as a virtual reality game. It was what you'd call a 3rd person shooter, perhaps? It had an overhead view of your little animated guy as he...

Got you all beat. I'm loking at the box for King's Bounty for the C64 on the shelf beside my computer. Made by New World Computing and it's what HOMM was before it was renamed HOMM.

Old war, strategy game...help

This is from someone on another gaming forum I frequent, "What I do remember, is that this game predates Windows 95. I played it somewhere around 1992-93 on some kid's old PC. It was like 8 bit graphics, compariable to the original Nintendo system. The general theme was you started off with a small ...

My most recent computer is a pentium 90 w/16 mb RAM and about a 600 mb HD. :) My husband found it abandoned in the basement of the restaurant he's works at. Nobody wanted it.

Boy. The publisher was Knowledge Adventure so you might try to contact them by email.

I've googled and can't find much but references from pages that are dated '95 and '94!!

I'll keep an eye out.

I found something through google called 'Vampire Bat'. Google showed an 'official page' for it but I couldn't get to it. Nothing else seemed to turn up. Here's the link that wouldn't work for me...www.gironet.nl/home/awbekker/vbatmain.htm

Just google the heck out of 'download designasaurus' is my only advice. I got the original from Underdogs but you can't download from them at the moment.

And now I can't remember how I found it yesterday...I think I finally googled something 'make dinosaur lab'.

It's for sale here.

I'm not sure where you could download it but I don't think reputable abandonware sites would have it as it's still being sold.

Tips for those who want DOS computers

Because I've seen people saying they buy stuff on Ebay or find parts hard to find... Join your local freecycle.org email list. I've found a pentium, 2 C64s and a Vic20 plus copies of King's Quest 3 ("I was going to toss it out but thought I'd post it in case", said the lady. "Eeeeep! I want them," s...

I'm with the AMD crowd. While the P4 is 2.8 GH and the AMD is about 2.2 gh that's deceiving. The model number is roughly a guide to what Intel chip it's comparable to so the 3400 is more a match for a 3.4 GH. The architecture for both chips is very different meaning that AMD can toast the P4 in gami...
