DOS 2D versus fighting game

I'm not familiar with this game, but here is Mobygames' list of DOS fighting games, it's likely on this list somewhere. You can also narrow it by year, since you know approximately when you played it:

https://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/dos/fighting/

Hope this helps you find it :thumbsup:

Re: PC/Dos/Windows 3.1, 3D Isometric, Adventure/ Puzzle Solving. 1991-1995

Sorry, nothing comes to mind ... I did some searches on halloween themed games, pumpkins, etc, but didn't find any matching your description. You may want to try posting on the Reddit "Tip of my Joystick" subreddit, people there are pretty good at finding old games: http://reddit.com/r/tipofmyjoysti...

phpBB3 upgrade!

Yup, it only took, like 10 years. This was done for a bunch of reasons, one primary reason being better spam prevention. Also a more modern platform which will receive updates, speed, etc.

Please let me know if you notice any weirdness. Other than ... uh, the usual weirdness that goes on here. :slap:

Try posting on http://reddit.com/r/tipofmyjoystick/ you'll likely have better responses. This forum is mainly for finding DOS games.

Heya, sorry for late reply. 1) I'm a bit hesitant to allow people to upload random files ... there are a bunch of free places to store stuff these days. If you or anyone has a file they want me to take a look at, point me to a link, or you can always email it to me as long as it's not too big (see e...

Hey thank you for the helpful feedback! :) Some of the screenshots are very old, I don't remember where some of them came from. The majority I took myself but there are definitely some (like apparently Blood) that came from other sources. In the system I built each game can actually have multiple sc...

DOSGames.com v2.0 released!

Hey all, check out the new site! :) Well, the forum will stay the same for awhile. But the rest of it has a new look, and lots of new functionality! This has been in the works for the last 9 months or so, on and off whenever I was able to find time. It represents many, many hours of work. See the bl...

Hey all, So I'm working on an update for the site (yes ...) and had the (mis)fortune to come across Chub Gam 3D. Wow, I haven't played this thing in probably 15 years, and ... just wow. Shockingly, the original ChubGamSoft website is still up on Tripod! http://chubgamsoft.tripod.com/ Either the auth...

Not much opportunity these days for that I'm afraid :D I will try to find some time to fix the errors on the site at least. I'd still love to do a full remodeling of the site, but unless I get rich somehow, I probably won't have an opportunity to spend the hours it would take to make that a reality.

Hey all, so if you're reading this (and I'm pretty sure that you are) then you'll notice that the site is now on its new server. Actually everything will seem pretty much the same. I hope. But trust me, it's moved. :thumbsup: It actually was not too much of a problem; surprisingly easy. I guess I'd ...

Server move coming, please read

Hiya, Over six years ago, DOSGames.com moved to a new web server. At that time, some of the software being used (ex, PHP, MySQL, Apache, PHPBB2, etc) was already rather old. But we kept going as long as reasonably possible. Now, however, I've been getting daily emails that CPanel and a host of other...

Yup, all the pages are hard-coded html. With over 600 entries, it would take a long time to convert them to a database system. I've had inclinations of redoing the site over the years, but now that I'm in full-time work and part-time school (and likely starting to plan a wedding :love: :shifty:) it ...

Wow, nice! Good to hear they'll be making some new games!

And the anthology seems quite reasonable for the amount of games ... hmmm ... I already own a lot of them, some on the original floppy disks. Then again, I don't have a computer that has a floppy drive anymore :suspicious:
