Sable Drakon's Review of "Tyrian"

Post by sabledrakon »

Well... I've finally played Tyrian. I've heard that it's supposed to be similar to "Raptor: Call of the Shadows"... Well, they were a little wrong, it's nothing like it. I've beaten it about 3 times already and I still keep coming back.. The reason is because of all the "Super Arcade" modes... Here's my rating:

<P>Graphics: 9 <P>Gameplay: 10 (Really nice weapon buying system) <P>Replayability: 10 <P>Overall: 9.9 :)
"I now consider myself a heretic. My soul tainted with love that will never be. A gryphon, broken. It's soul shattered and it's pieces strewn across the void."

Uh, I was respected enough on the old board to be reccomended by Dogbreath to be a moderator. I make sure that there are no obscene things here, no abandonware or warez, basically I'm a police officer.

I thought Tyrian 2000 was a sequel, not just a Windows version.

That'd be great... I hate paying out cash for video games anyway... Howlong do you think it will take you to do it?

The origional Tyrian was made by Epic Megagames. I've seen the full version around with working links, but I can't remember any of them off hand :P

Tyrian 2000 includes new super arcade modes and a fifth episode. It also only seems to work properly under Win95 or sometimes 98 (with sound issues) so your best way to play is either on an old P1/2 or 486 or on a fast system with something like DOSBox (I have no idea how the XP compatibility modes treat the game)

meanwhile the original author released it as freeware so just check a site like legalaw.cjb.net for the download link

Before arjin' I took subdirectories off and tested it under Win 98. It worked just once like the original and it has same system requirements, so it's a hard core DOS game in 2nd worst sort. Of coure I could install IE 3.0 but what does it makes sence if thou've no internet connection?

Episode 5 has only 10 levels and most o' 'em are 'select either 1 or 2's. But they are in very abstract places. New musics aren't good. Skill is near Botany B.

Other additons to Epic release are new strange and underpowered ships. Also Some boss ships are changed. (Dreadhnot's more 'fixed' now.) But bugs are unfixed.

Anyway, everyone who likes shoot 'em ups MUST get it! As good one cannot been get even by money.
NO Windows, NO DOSBox, DOS!
