Kings Quest VII: The Princeless Bride Screenshots show a blonde wearing a full-length dress, also a well, a cave and a desert scene. (The dress is somewhat turquoise rather than blue - but I see in some shots the dress is indeed blue, the description says it's two persons; a princess/troll in blue a...

I recall such a game on one of Nokia:s PC clones, but I think it ran something like DOS 1.x or CP/M, because there was only one flat directory with all files. It was just an animated car-crash, after which an ambulance and/or towtruck came to take the victims away, during which there was a text-scro...

Another copy-paste bot, calling itself 'Draco02'. It's signature has been used before: 'DaRe DaViL', not sure if the name was the same. http://www.dosgames.com/forum/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=13206 copy from dogbreath's last post in this thread: http://www.dosgames.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=216...

Selling stuff so horrible, all the treehuggers cried out in rage...or something.

Also, you might want to choose another game for us to guess, since this is easily identified as your favourite game, and its path/filename gives it away too.

Guest spam from 'sergantsochi', offering his services, at least in readable cyrillic form.
The service might have fit in the hardware section, but no spammers can read anyway.

Four more of the empty/dummy posts appeared, so far.
Same forums as before, plus in the 'Game, Hep Hints and Tips' forum.

I guess such posts are just intended to fill the forums with garbage, so...any competitors?

Hmm...lots (8) of junk posts today, no content in any of them, and all by unregistered guests. Some limit to posting empty garbage could perhaps be in place? (As well as spellchecks, if no words pass, it's probably junk) Typical example: http://www.dosgames.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=20695 All eight ...

Posting generic praise in a three year old dead thread looks fishy to me.

Perhaps it's 'Airlift Rescue' as suggested, since there are people to pickup and the ground is green with a black sky.

Thanks Quadko, I'll see whats needed, I made it to the 5th mission, I think of total 21 missions. I like the option to pull back and reload when empty.
