1 Classic DOS Games for DosBOX on 19/1/2012, 22:33
A Wee Bit Chatty
I my self am not AROS' hugest fan, but I do enjoy the fact that it allows me to play some of the more top of the line titles available for DOS (with the help of my near 4Ghz machine).
Some of the later DOS titles never got the time of day because Windows was turning a lot of heads and coders began to abandon the DOS format all together. Ironically as with console systems, it seems that the best and most advanced games get pushed out at the end as the platform dies, DOS is no exception.
A few titles I've really been enjoying are:
Anvil of Dawn which is a first person RPG much like the old Eye of the Beholder series, though in real time, and with a ton of features that were not possible during the time when the old EOTB series was being written.
You'll find that EVERYONE's in game speech is spoken and does not appear just in text, also the graphics are really good for the time, and on top of that the game play does not just take place underground, but also out doors. The story line is sublime, very dark and full of demons and what not, plus the adventure is very open ended, leaving you with the ability to back track and try to look for power ups and what not that you may have left behind earlier.
Over all, I have to say that this is the BEST game of it's type that I've ran across thus far. https://youtu.be/LK4vkw1NsxY
I'll list more games in the near future, I just kind of wanted to get this topic started.
