Here’s a short non-interactive demo of Sierra On-Line’s 1992 VGA remake of the first Quest for Glory game. Download the demo here: https://www.scummvm.org/demos/

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis demo

Here’s a pretty cool Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (Lucasarts, 1992) interactive demo. A choice of the part is somewhat surprising, as this is something that happens rather late in the game (Spoilers!). I’ve decided to stick with MT-32 music for this one. A slightly larger than the floppy demo in file size, […]

Wolfenstein 3D review

Join me as I recall my first time encountering the legendary American spy William Joseph “B.J.” Blazkowicz, and his heroic adventures in samey looking Nazi fortresses known as Wolfenstein 3D (id Software/Apogee Software, 1992). Why are all the turkey dinners on the floor? Is that some sort of a German thing? Mein leben! MobyGames page: http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/wolfenstein-3d […]

Vorona\Ворона\Crow – Russian DOS game

Today I take a look at a classic Russian DOS game Ворона [Vorona\Crow] (ONP, 1992), a game that has colorful VGA graphics, humorous setting based on Russian folk tales, and terrible controls. Join me as I go through the game and share some of Russian folklore with you, as well as complete my personal 24 […]

Alone in the Dark

France is known for many things, but videogames were never really a part of them. Strange because France produces a lot of games, but especially so because back in the days of the PC boom of the 80s and 90s a lot of beautiful & genre breaking games came out of France. Alone in the Dark was one of […]

The game is KGB (later known as “Conspiracy” when it was re-released on CD-ROM featuring Donald Sutherland,) developed by Cryo Interactive Entertainment and published by Virgin games in 1992. Enjoy.

GAMOS puzzle series – Russian DOS games

Today I take a look at the “Gamos Logical Serial” or a set of four puzzle games developed and published by a Russian company Gamos between 1992 and 1994. These games are From Corner To Corner (Уголки), Color Lines (Цветные Линии), Balda (Балда), and Nine (Девятка). Get ready for some high resolution EGA goodness, and […]

Gobliins 2 – Let’s Play (Part 5 – THE END)

Our friends’ journey comes to an end. Enjoy the last two levels of Gobliins 2: The Prince Buffoon!

Gobliins 2 – Let’s Play (Part 4)

The recently freed Prince Buffoon has thrown a tantrum and refused to cooperate. As a result our heroes need to get him off a tree first and then rescue him from his own mushroom-enduced nightmare immediately after, only to see him being carried away by a bird. See me struggle with a few repetitive sequences.

Dune full AdLib Gold soundtrack

Presented here is the most beautiful AdLib Gold score for Dune (Cryo Interactive Entertainment/Virgin  Games, 1992) by Stéphane Picq. One of the few that not only takes full advantage of AdLib Gold, but also of its Surround Module. Download here: http://www.dosnostalgia.com/files/dune_ost.zip I must point out that I haven’t made these recordings, but stumbled upon them […]

Gobliins 2 – Let’s Play (Part 3)

Adventure continues! I’d free Prince Buffoon much faster if I didn’t get stuck on two super annoying levels of this wonderful game. I complain a lot. Sorry.

Gobliins 2 – Let’s Play (Part 2)

Our adventure continues! Sit down and listen to me talk nonsense while two brave goblins make their way through the castle and an undersea world. I complain about the sunken ship level a bunch.  

Gobliins 2 – Let’s Play (Part 1)

Our adventure begins! Fingus and Winkle, two heroic goblins are sent on a quest to save Prince Buffoon from an evil creature. Here’s part one of me rambling over one of my favorite games from French developer Coktel Vision. Goblins trilogy on GOG: http://www.gog.com/game/gobliiins_pack

Anatoly remembers #1: DOS games in 1992

With 2012 almost gone, I reminisce about 1992 and its MS-DOS releases. Sit back, relax and enjoy the showcase of 20-year-old pc gaming goodness.  

“Alone in the Dark” review

An old Derceto mansion has zombies, demons, ghosts and a Chthonian. And now it also has you (in the role of a private detective Edward Carnby.) It’s now up to you to get out of the house, dispel the evil, save the world and your own life in the first 3D survival horror adventure inspired […]

“RoboCop 3” review

A police cyborg Alex Murphy once said: “They’ll fix you. They fix everything.” Well, nothing can fix a bad sequel like RoboCop 3, but there’s still a small chance that if you try really hard you can force yourself to think of this game instead of the movie when someone says “RoboCop 3”. Car chases, […]
