Ancient Domains Of Mystery
ADOM is my favorite roguelike game -- it's huge! FYI, a roguelike
game is a game w/ ASCII graphics and 2D gameplay. This one is the best!
ATris is a Tetris clone with a couple of twists, including the addition
of gravity and multiple kinds of pieces. Also, there is a good
Battalion is a great 3D game. The idea behind it is this: You
are a monster, and your mission is to blow up, crunch set fire to or otherwise
destroy a town before the military destroys you. Note: This game
needs a fairly good graphics card to run at full speed.
Website: Down, download it at http://pad.olsonnetwork.com/downloads/BillardGL-1.72-Setup.exe
This is an excellent pool game for Windows. It is all 3D rendered,
and it runs great on my machine. (A 700MHz Duron with a GeForce2 MX)
BZFlag is a 3D Tank combat game. It has a huge number of options.
You can play with computers and/or other players on a network. There
are lots (and I mean lots :) of powerups, and it is really fun. Also,
look for another upcoming 3D tank game, named Project 2501 for now. Its
website is: http://www.wizards.de/~frank/project2501/
Crack Attack! is a Tetris-like game in the style of the Super Nintendo game
Tetris Attack. This one supports two-player LAN games, and has *way*
better graphics. You destroy blocks by swapping them to get rows of
the same color. If you destroy 4 blocks or more at a time, or execute
combos, you can dump "garbage" on the other player. If you are playing
one-player, however, you dump garbage on yourself. Anyway, give it a
shot, it's pretty cool! NOTE: I take no responsibility for any loss
of job/relationship/etc. that may result from playing this (highly addictive)
Chromium B.S.U is a high-graphics vertically scrolling shooter. This
program *requires* a good graphics card to run at anything like a decent speed.
Some very cool effects.
Chicken Invaders is the best Space Invaders clone I have seen so far.
It features 3D chickens to shoot at, and several play modes. Also, you
can upgrade your firepower.
Cannon Smash is a 3D table tennis game. You can play against a computer
or a fellow human. The ping-pong table and characters are all 3D rendered,
and it is a well done game, if a trifle hard to learn.
NetHack Falcon's Eye
NetHack, like ADOM, is a roguelike game. This means that it has character
based graphics and turn based gameplay. Falcon's Eye is a modified version
of Nethack with graphics. It features an isometric view, lots of computer
generated graphics, and mouse-based navigation. Really a cool game!
HaCKeR is a Tetris game other Tetris games can only look up to. It
has fairly good graphics. Not as good as Zetrix, though. The main
thing is that it has 8 different play modes including network/Internet play
and split-screen local. This is not just a Tetris clone. It's
*the* Tetris clone.
Ice Breaker is a game akin to the Microsoft game 'JezzBall'. You have
to trap small moving objects. The difference is, this one is totally
KasBrik is a cool BreakOut clone, where you have use a ball and paddle to
break bricks. This one is 3D, with several neat effects.
KoboDeluxe is a Windows port of the excellent "XKobo" game for Linux.
Be warned, though: it is *very* addictive. You fly around in a little
ship shooting these maze-like bases. Simple controls: Arrow keys to
move, Control to shoot.
LBreakout2 is acknowledged by many to be the *best* Breakout clone.
Until just recently, however, it was only available for Linux. Now,
however, the author has taken pity on Windows users, and created a Windows
port. This game has load of bonuses and maluses (bad bonuses), lots
of levels, and some pretty eye candy. Enjoy!
Little Fighter 2
Little Fighter 2 is a 'Street Fighter' type game, where you pick a character
and battle other characters, whether computer controlled or human. This
one supports up to four people on one computer, and up to eight on a network
game. There is also a stage mode, where you (and possibly other players)
fight hordes of computer players. Overall, a well done game. There
is a guide available showing all of the moves.
Maelstrom is a well-made Asteroids game with several features. It
makes for an interesting diversion, and has high-quality graphics. If you
go to the website above, you can even download new graphics and sound packs
Mario Game for DOS
This is a small Mario Brothers-style game with 6 levels. It has parallelax
scrolling, and will run smoothly on a 486 25MHz. Fun, small and free!
Mirror Magic is a puzzle game from the same people who made Rocks 'n' Diamonds.
In it, you must turn all of the mirrors so that your beam goes through all
of the pots.
NetHack is the second-biggest roguelike I have ever seen (ADOM is the first).
Everything including the kitchen sink. Literally. 'Nuff said.
Penguin Command is a high-quality Missle Command clone with good graphics.
Click on the incoming missles to kill them. Well-made free game.
Pingus is a free clone of the PC Game 'Lemmings', only with penguins.
This was originally a Linux game that has since been ported to Windows.
It has lots of levels, and tolerable graphics.
Q-Lat 2 is one of the coolest puzzle games I have ever seen. The concept
is simple: Make all of the marbles the same color as yours. To do so,
you need to bump them, sort of like pool. This game has beautiful graphics
and good sound. Enjoy!
Rocket Duel is a fun split-screen combat game. You and another human
player (no computer players) each control a rocket ship. Depending on
the map used, the game is one of three types: Regular, where you try to shoot
each other; CTF, where you try to capture your opponent's flag and take it
to your base; and CTF Special, where there is one flag you are both going
for. A good multiplayer game for those without a network.
Rocks 'n' Diamonds
Rocks 'n' Diamonds is a well-done Boulderdash clone with *lots* of levels.
You can even make your own levels! Great puzzle game!
Safrosoft RoX is a good BouderDash clone. It doesn't have as many
features and levels as Rocks 'n' Diamonds (that would be hard!), but it has
a lot better graphics, including different lights, fade-ins and the works.
Anyway, it's fun to play.
This is a game with a lot of nostalgia value to me. The gameplay is
okay, with lots of levels to go through (it's kind of a racing game), but
it has really cool music. Anyways, the company that makes it, Blue Moon
software, now releases it for free on the 'Net at the address above.
Skyxmas.exe is the special Christmas Edition with new levels.
Tux Racer is a highly detailed 3D racing game, where you race a penguin
down courses in the snow. On the way down, you try to collect herring.
Only when you get all the herring in a reasonable time can you advance to
the next level. However, there is a practice mode included where you
can try out all of the levels.
Ultimate Steroids is one of the best Asteroids clones I have seen.
It is totally 3D rendered. There are lots of powerups, including weapons
XBlast TNT is a 'Bomberman' style game. It has a HUGE variety of levels.
You can play up to 2 players on one computer (no computer players unfortunately).
On a network, you can have up to 6 players total, 2 per computer. This
is my most successful multiplayer game. On caveat, though: It
requires a 1024x768 resolution screen to play. The above is not the
official website, which went down a while ago. This is the biggest fan
site that I could find.
Zetrix 3D is a very well done 3D Tetris clone. This is almost the
best game of it's type I've ever seen, HaCKeR being the only one that is
better. All of the graphics are fully 3D-rendered. There are
some pretty cool effects when you destroy a line. Also, you can play it multiplayer
locally or over the network!
