Day of the Tentacle stream archive

Decided to relax a little bit and play one of my favorite games of all time. Apologies for my voice cutting out so often. Not really sure what the issue was.  

Nor’easter February 2017 live stream archive

Got snowed in again. Good thing I’ve got DOS games!

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 […]

Impromptu Patreon stream

Decided to throw an unplanned stream for DOS Nostalgia patrons. Played a few random games. Thanks to everyone who stopped by despite Game Done Quick and The Golden Globes.   WARNING: Strong language throughout, ESPECIALLY when playing Zorro. Games in this stream: Croustibat, Zorro, Crow (Ворона), Tetris Classic, and Bart vs. Space Mutants. Croustibat fish […]

DOS Nostalgia Snowed In Live Stream

Got snowed in Saturday night. Decided to check if I could actually stream a few games despite my crappy machine & slow internet. Turns out, I can! Check out the archived version: Games in this stream: Dangerous Dave in the Haunted Mansion, Alley Cat (PCjr), Build engine tech demo, Ukrainian hack of Captain Comic, Perestroika, […]

Full Throttle demo

Here’s an interactive demo of Full Throttle (Lucasarts, 1995). This huge (over 170 megabytes) demo was obviously meant for coverdisks, and despite its size is rather short. It’s just a few interactive sequences sandwiched between two in-engine trailers for the game. Most interesting thing is the narration that was recorded specifically for this demo, and […]

MS-DOS Games in 1991

Travel back in time with me to 25 years ago and enjoy this compilation of 82 DOS games from 1991. (P.S.: Stick around for the credits)  

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. […]

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 […]

Let’s play Doom 2D part 4

I finally reach the part of the game where maps designed by Russian teenagers officially stop being quaint, and become annoying.  

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

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 […]

Let’s play Doom 2D part 3

Third part of my Doom 2D let’s play. This time I only manage to finish one level, and immediately get torn to shreds in the next one. Enjoy.
