Another addition of Old Games! And i have a few of them here. So now, this is :
OLD GAMES PART II (Part one)
There should be atleast one or two games that make you go “OOOOH I REMEMBER THAAAT!”. If not,you clearly didn’t game too much, pre-2000 😀
This one goes waaaay back! And the best part is that, it still is crazy fun / addictive even now.
Maid – THANK YOU MARIO! BUT OUT PRINCESS IS IN ANOTHER CASTLE!
Mario – Wat. the. fack.
BATTLE CHESS (1989)
This was one game where losing or winning didn’t matter. Just send someone to kill/be killed and watch the interesting battle animation. I remember the way the Rooks transformed from walls into creatures in order to move hahaha
COMMANDER KEEN (1990)
I/we had never really been fans of commander keen, because we’d be playing other Side-scrolling games such as Biomenace or Prince of persia 3D more. But this is a great series of games.
A-10 TANK KILLER (1991)
So old..So very old. Nishu and nihar would remember this one 😀
We’d play this on his Pentium 386, baaaaaaaarely able to make out shapes and figures (Because we had a black and white monitor). But it still was SO much fun compared to cricket.
WOLFENSTEIN 3D (1992)
Who doesn’t remember this one? 😀
Absolute classic 🙂
Oh man…one of the few games that terrified me during my childhood. Bad graphics, SMOOTH animation, Brilliant storyline, and a handsome face looking back at you from the HUD. what more do you need 😛
But this game was one of the only games that gave me nightmares of “Imagine being in that place, man”. Those hordes of enemies…gah
Well this was supposed to be fun to play, but it wasn’t so much. I keep confusing Heretic with Hexen weirdly.
COMMAND AND CONQUER GOLD (1995)
The very first command and conquer game! We got hooked onto C&C Red Alert before even trying out this game. Anyhoo, C&C RA was out of this world, so it didn’t matter 😀
I think this was one of the first games i played in which i could actually look around the entire room, from top to bottom. Arrow keys to move, A & Z to move front and back, and Ctrl or Space to fire. Aah thats the shit.
Rise Of The Triad (1995)
We used to play this game alongside Doom and Wolf 3D (we had them all installed later). It had better graphics, and FUN weapons 😀
Drunken missile launcher, Magic weapons, and a lot of gore 🙂
This was a neat, nice and fun game with crispy smooth graphics. It was pretty straightforward to play, as with every side scrolling game. You get pushed ahead, killing and collecting and finally meet a boss. But it had nuuuumerous weapon selections. Oh and also orbiting shields, engine upgrades, etc…I liked it 😀
DESTRUCTION DERBY 2 (1996)
Ahahahah DD2. Only played the demo, but it was fun, though with very amateur handling. Anyway, the whole point of the game was to just bang into others and either eliminate all or try to race and win (pretty much like carmageddon, only, you DON’T feel empty if you only race and win). Truthfully, we raced only about 2/100 times. The rest of the times were just derbies! T’was a bit hard i must say.
Very few would remember this game. Fun gameplay, but choppy graphics. But it involved driving fast, killing people and killing cars! Sold!
This shall be the end of OLD GAMES PART II (Part 1) 😀
The next part has more recent games which people played / still play, but still Pre-2000 🙂
