Ok, I tried finding something similar but no real luck so far. Novastorm is one similar rail shooter in space, except it does not seem to be inside a monster. Here is a list of rail shooters to look through by year. (Not all are in space, and not all are for DOS): http://www.mobygames.com/game-group...

My guess would be 'Twin Godesses' - a mix of animated (opponent) and digitized (protagonist) characters, also the protagonists were female, which could have been unusual; not that I've played that many fighting games.

Hmm...I'm thinking something like Microcosm, but there you see your craft/character from over the shoulder.

Attack? Many adventures are mostly about collecting treasure, very little fighting. What viewpoint? 1st person/3rd person (kings quest style walking around a screen) or action platform style like Prince of Persia? What environment, in/out-doors (ok, mountain would be outdoors), dungeon/city? Did it ...

Battlespire is an RPG game with more action orientation, levels and items to find.
Not sure if it fits, but have a look:

I'd guess it's one of the early Wizardry games, they have a simple graphics interface, corridor like paths, and text response to actions. Early versions were PC booter floppy disks. http://www.mobygames.com/game-group/wizardry-games E.g. here is some 'green slime' from the earliest game: http://www....

[quote="Quadko"]Zaxxon or BlueMax (hm, not dos) -snip-[/quote]


At least Zaxxon was available on PC, but as a PC booter, not DOS.
(It wasn't top-down like the 1942/-43 console games from Capcom though.)

(BlueMax as seen on the PC was a more modern variant, with a 1st person cockpit view.)

It's a relatively recent fad, and it is more of a token than anything else. Turning off lights won't have much effect here, as most consumer bulbs are low-energy nowadays anyway. Turning off heating for an hour may give more immediate effect, but you have to replenish lost heat afterwards anyway, so...
