MONTHLY 5 - January 2023

It's 2023 and a full month has gone by. Other than collecting my musings of the movies and modern games I've encountered over the last year, it's time to get back to the old stuff. We have five interesting obscurities to kick off the year, starting with the fantasy Tomb Raider clone Asghan: The Dragon Slayer (1998 Silmarils). Next up is a recently translated PlayStation platformer featuring the first creation of Dragon Ball's Akira Toriyama called Dr. Slump (1998 Bandai). Then we have the racing sequel Monster Truck Madness 2 (1998 Microsoft Corporation & Terminal Reality) complete with dozens of fanmade tracks and trucks. Travel the high seas and shoot your way to treasure in Overboard! (1997 Psygnosis) otherwise known as Shipwreckers! in the US. Lastly, guest reviewer Austin takes on a crazy ride with the action-arcade-strategy hybrid that is Space Dude (1996 Evryware).

That's not all. A minor improvement to the site sees the list of all of the Labels in full view at the very bottom. It was something I didn't even think about until a random comment popped up, so hopefully it'll prove useful when browsing the hundreds of game reviews (we're edging towards 600!).

Talking about the games, we have a few updates. Shannara now uses DOSBox-X (but may have an issue so the last version remains - expect the fantasy adventure to appear here again next month), Nocturne now has some tweaks for better compatibility while also adding an editor and soundtrack too! Lastly, MetalTech EarthSiege fixes the crash at the end of Campaign 4, Mission 8 while also getting upgraded to DOSBox Daum as its emulator of choice. You can see their full details of their game pages or on the Game Updates page found to your right.

  1. Thanks for your continued and impressive work!

  2. Can you get the game called imp made by idol fx ab please

    1. I'm having trouble finding that game. Are you thinking of Gast? Can't tell if it got a name change in other countries, but I have it physical and it's on my list.


  3. Great releases as always Biffman! Thank you.

    A while back as you released Dune 2000 during a flurry of games being released from the CC you mentioned the possibility of Emperor : Battle For Dune of joining the hallowed halls of the Collection Chamber.

    Do you believe you'll be able to release it soon? I'm asking because I recently tried to get my original CD'S of that game working and its relatively hellish haha on a modern system.

    Regardless thanks again for all the amazing games!

    1. I had to save one to coincide with the Dune sequel later this year ;)

    2. Haha love it! Thank you. I'm a mega old school fan of RTS goodness. I do believe it's not your favourite genre but thank you for also releasing some for some old timers such as myself :)

  4. Hello Biffman :)

    Thanks a lot for games. Asghan I think hard to worked it playable. You did it !!! I will test this next week. Shipwreckers! hah my old memories. Monster Truck Madness 2 - cute. I don't know the last two games, but thanks to your library, my knowledge of the history of games will increase.

    Thanks again.

    1. You're welcome! I'll keep the weird obscurities coming :)

  5. Are these installers hard/time consuming to make?

  6. i enjoy racing games https://www.youtube.com/@martin4basis/videos
