is it at all like Dominus, perhaps? I don't remember much of the gameplay, although defending your realm by setting traps, with the possibility of personal involvement, seems to fit. I thought the invaders could be of various races, though the description on mobygames doesn't mesh with that. Well, i...

Just "bumping" this, in case any new eyes can help. I've left my game paused for half a year. :)

Not that it matters, but the "chicken" game I was thinking of was Caverns of Freitag.

The "Chicken" one, might it have been a game where your character turned into a chicken when running from battle (I believe the chicken ran faster than the character normally did)? Because that's ringing a bell for me.

I also think there were eggs involved, somehow... hmm.

In no particular order:

M.A.X.
Master of Magic
Master of Orion 2
Star Control 1 & 2

Then honourable mentions to doom, rise of the triad, anacreon, & alien legacy I suppose.

A great site this, a bit of nostalgia overload.

Defend the solar system

I'm trying to find a game - an ancient one I'm sure, where you fly around the solar system (ours, with Earth etc.), repelling some invading baddies. A few details I remember: I believe, though wouldn't swear, your ship appearance was ripped off from the Enterprise from Star Trek. It's quite possible...

One basic tip - the squaddie opening the door shouldn't be doing any fighting. He opens the door and runs (to the side, on your side of the door). Meanwhile, the rest of your team, prone and in some formation facing the door, proceeds to lob in rockets (or just waits for opportunity fire as aliens w...

Another possibility, certainly it meets most of the description provided by Chuckiferd, is Armor Alley . Two spawn bases can send out infantry, tanks, missle launchers, electronics vans, engineers - and you just control the helicopter, which can pick up/drop infantry, as well as use machine gun, mis...

First one might be Populous I suppose, though there's no actual "shovel" involved. At least in that it's possible to drown your followers.

Hyperspeed - fighting the Vorc

I've been rediscovering Microprose's beautiful Hyperspeed, and I'm having a problem in the third cluster. When fighting a Vorc starbase, I can do no damage. My Trailblazer gets caught & held in some sort of tractor beam before I can get my main gun in range. I can destroy the little blue "lid" on th...
