There were a few Robot Wars licenses, but I'm not sure if that is the type of game OP talks about.

Some compiled BASIC:s does that, at invalid data input.

I see the D.C. demo with intro video was found by MrFlibble in 2011:

A smaller D.C. demo without the intro video is on CNET:

As for the first game, possibly 'Pyramids of Egypt'? http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/pyramids-of-egypt Otherwise there is a list of Egyptian-themed games at Mobygames: http://www.mobygames.com/game-group/setting-egyptian-/ The second game could be 'Montezuma's Revenge': http://www.mobygames.com/ga...

I have a LAPC-1, and it is ROM samples only, while I understand the MT-32 could load up some banks with samples, I never had an MT-32:s myself. When you need external MIDI, used a splitter to separate the joystick port out from the midi in/out ports; normally you have two cables for the Midi devices...

Curious, the SB Live OEM/shareware version of Unreal listed at that web site is not the one I have; the version I got with my SB Live card is the full retail version 2.00.

(I had to install it again just for fun, with updates it is still a very good game IMO)

Found a bunch of (mostly dead) torrents for it, but that's about it so far.
Someone was offering to put it up for download again on a Polish forum, but no requests.

A review (by Jonathan Nash) in UK PC Gamer from Aug -99 rated it 70%

This game?
Not DOS though, and likely better support from the bigfish guys.

If not, there is some detail missing in your post, as Dosraider already wrote.

I found something similar for PS2 called 'Shifters', from 2002, but I don't know if the time frame fits.

2 player coop or PvP?
Networked or shared/split screen & kbd?

Do you control troops other than your main character, or is the defence automated without any troops?

2D top-down or some sort of 3D view?

Based on the release time of 1998 for the other two titles on the demo disk, I'd make a guess at 'Incoming' or a similar game clone called 'Barrage'. http://www.mobygames.com/game/incoming-the-final-conflict http://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/barrage Both had single-level demos released for them ...

Hmm, I thought of that, but dismissed it; 'opens in a bar' and the menu on right didn't ring a bell. (I just played some of it a couple of months ago). It starts in an abode of one alien species who resurrected you from a strange storage device. If you find an old v1.0 copy, the v1.02 patch fixes so...

Sounds like something you'd have to make locally, I can't imagine dialing overseas to order a mug with your name on it.

Maybe a free plugin to some existing graphics program, promoting a local merchant?

A player-controlled party is more common with RPG:s than pure adventures in my experience. If you think Jewels of Darkness looks close in style, maybe look over some of the old RPG games like Ishar, Drakkhen or the original Neverwinter Nights (-91)?
