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 […]

Skunny games

Today I take a look at six games starring Skunny Hardnut, an attempt at creating a PC shareware mascot by a Belgian company Copysoft. Grab a sticky nut pudding & join Skunny on his adventures in the Middle East, the Moon, a forest, Ancient Rome, the Wild West, and an alleged case of copyright infringement. […]

Fuzzy’s World of Miniature Space Golf soundtrack

Check out this upbeat soundtrack from an obscure shareware title Fuzzy’s World of Miniature Space Golf (Pixel Painters Software, 1995). The game uses Loudness sound system, the same one used in Tyrian. Unfortunately no composer is credited. Download MP3 archive here: http://www.dosnostalgia.com/files/fuzzy_ost.zip

Hugo’s House of Horrors

Today I take a look at a shareware classic Hugo’s House of Horrors (Gray Design Associates, 1990).

Big Blue Disk

Today I take a look at an IBM PC diskmag “Big Blue Disk”. Published from 1986 to 1998, it was known for its variety in software it had to offer, and many games. When it came to games this diskmag had ties to many pc gaming legends, including Moraffware, Apogee, and id Software. But wait! […]

Wiering Software

Today I take a look at shareware and freeware games created by a one man team known as Wiering Software. Yes, some of them are more than a little “inspired” by Super Mario Bros., but is that really a bad thing? The games feature Mario, his cousin, a duck, a Dutch Santa Claus, and some […]

Zone 66 full soundtrack (Sound Blaster + GUS + AdLib)

Today I present to you full soundtrack from Zone 66 (Renaissance/Epic MegaGames, 1993) composed by Kenny Chou. What is specifically interesting about this game is that for each of the three sound devices this game supports the music is actually different. Sound Blaster score is a mix of FM synthesis and digital samples. Gravis UltraSound […]

Quake Redone Quick

This is the original 1999 release of Quake Redone Quick, a complete Quake 1 speedrun on Nightmare difficulty in 14:32 by just one person – Ingmar “Nagasaki” Poerner. Although this speedrun was later improved on and released in a variety of versions, this original release is still my personal favorite. The video includes the whole […]

“Duke Nukem” review

Cameras, robots, lasers, tons of pixel explosions and not a single bare breast in sight in the first game about everyone’s favorite ultimate alien ass kicker. Before 3D Realms was 3D Realms, before violence and controversy and before the black shades Duke Nukem was wholesome fun for the whole family.
