Title: Suggestions for fun, classic MS-DOS games
Post by: Bahamut ZERO on July 30, 2016, 03:13:39 pm
Found DOSBox for PSP the other day, and have been looking for fun classic DOS to mess around with on it. Been a bit of a pain getting it set up, but I've got Super Munchers running perfectly on it!

So now that I've figured out how to get things to run, I've been searching for other fun things to play on the go. Thing is, outside of some games I used to play in elementary school during the mid-to-late 90's (Oregon Trail, Amazon Trail, and a number of games I can't remember the names of at all) I'm pretty new to the older DOS games.

Anyone got any suggestions for games I ought to try out?

Colonization, Master of Magic, Master of Orion 2, Elite Plus and perhaps Star Control 2 (but ur-quan masters exists for more modern platforms).

-About anything by Bullfrog.
-Daggerfall.  Best done with DaggerfallSetup though, which has it's own DOSBox in the package but with most possible bugfixes.
-Blood
-Star Wars: Dark Forces
-Pinball Illusions, Fantasies, and World
-Settlers 2
-Descent 1, 2, and the Vertigo expansion for 2 (these have DXX-Rebirth though).
-Abuse, though it's not the easiest to setup.
-Master of Orion 2
-Master of Magic
-Might and Magic: World of Xeen (this is 4 and 5 put together, kinda like Sonic 3 and Knuckles but with even more added stuff.)
-Albion
-Aliens TC for Doom.  There's some crazy old WADs that don't work with modern sourceports (Batman Doom for example), but not too much else of note.  Chocolate Doom takes care of most of these problems however, and the preference between it and DOS is mostly personal.

I will 3rd Master of Orion 2--honestly, I can still get lost in that game for hours.

I will 2nd Daggerfall with the special DOSBox setup and patches, but with some caveats.

It definitely feels a lot different than later ES games, and I always found the game wanting to do way too much with what the tech at the time would permit--for example, cities feel like cities (they are huge), but the people and buildings pretty much all look the same, and it's relatively easy to get lost. The dungeons also always felt really bland and generic to me, but I can definitely see that as a point of personal preference.  One massive problem IMO were the randomly generated guild quests that will sometimes require you to slay a monster that's immune to low-end equipment early on and basically cause you to auto fail the quest.  Plus you need to use the keyboard to play, and while I could do that as a kid in the 90s, I need controller support to play games these days.

All of that said, if you can deal with all that, Daggerfall probably has one of the more interesting ES plots (I put it behind Morrowind, but better than Oblivion or Skyrim), and there is A LOT of places to go, even if most of them look the same.

I think you all are spectacularly overestimating how fast a PSP can run DOSBox.

I wouldn't be surprised if EGA side scrollers like Commander Keen are about the upper limit of what's doable (And even then, by using frameskip).

Note that I'm speaking from my experiences using DOSBox Turbo on an Android device running a 1.6GHz Qualcomm Scorpion CPU. Even Wolfenstein 3D was unplayably slow on that thing, and it's a hell of a lot faster than the 333MHz CPU in a PSP, even accounting for the IPC differences between an ARM CPU and a MIPS one.

Really, playing on a PSP is just, eh... But save yourself: Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat Trilogy, The Lion King (best version in my opinion), Princess Maker (any version is good), SimCity, most skating games are good, Indiana Jones (the platformer one) and that is all for the moment...

For Abuse, Blood and the likes, it is better to find a suitable port instead of running DOS power. Abuse got ports for many systems. ;)

Well, I'm only using PSP Dosbox for the little games it can handle or I want to play on the go. I have the PC version of DOSBox to try out everything else.  ;)

Great suggestions guys! Went ahead and got ahold of ScummVM too so I can finally getting around to playing all those older lucasarts point n clicks. Didn't realize there were 3 older Monkey Islands and an older Sam and Max.  :D

All of the old 3D Realms stuff is pretty great – Duke Nukem, Command Keen, Monster Bash, Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure, and so on.

Really, there's not much that GOG doesn't already have up for grabs, at least as far as the cream of the crop is concerned.

To be fair though, there may be a Commander Genius (the sourceport for Keen) port for PSP around.  There was one for even the old Dingoo.

It's like lemmings, but with 2D water simulation.

By the way, this game's OST hasn't been ripped, like ever (and it is excellent). Can anyone do it?
Title: Re: Suggestions for fun, classic MS-DOS games
Post by: thr on July 31, 2016, 09:53:41 pm
some nice suggestions here, but not many RPGs, so here are a few:

the Ultima series was groundbreaking for its time, and while the early installments are grind-heavy and feel quite dated, Ultima VII (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultima_VII:_The_Black_Gate) is still considered one of the best games in the cRPG genre. while this is a DOS game, the preferred way to play it is by using Exult (http://exult.sourceforge.net/), so this particular suggestion might not be so great in this case.

so, for DOS-specific RPGs, Ultima 5 is really good, as is Ultima Underworld (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultima_Underworld:_The_Stygian_Abyss) and its sequel (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultima_Underworld_II:_Labyrinth_of_Worlds), which is in fact even better. these games feel surprisingly fresh even now, especially for their suggestive environments, with levels of interactivity that are in some aspects completely unrivaled by today's graphics-heavy games.

The early Might & Magic games can still be very fun. can't recommend MM1, because they were just starting to learn how to make games, but MM2 still looks colourful and sweet, and there are many great adventures to be had. later installments are even better, until the series deteriorated around part 8 and was later cannibalised by Heroes of Might and Magic. Might and Magic X, which was released in 2014, feels like a cheap joke when compared to these older titles.

now, Dragon Wars (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon_Wars) is a mix between the early Bard's Tale games and Wasteland. it looks dated and requires an instruction manual to actually be able to progress, but the gameplay and the story are superb. I still play it sometimes, like once in a few years. an 'intelligent' approach of using a variety of assets that are available to the party (items, spells, character skills, lores and attributes) should be taken to get the best solution to a problem or to find hidden secrets, but an aggressive approach will often work as well, because the game is pretty open-ended. for example, while this will not be obvious from the start, there are many different ways to escape from the prison settlement that you're thrown into at the beginning. there's a huge, open world with a simple but suggestive story based on Sumerian mythology, the environments are surprisingly interactive at times, many fights are really epic, there are many hidden, optional challenges to tackle, there are pirates. great underdog.

Anvil of Dawn (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anvil_of_Dawn) is a nice, action and puzzle-heavy, hard dungeon romp with a dark, brooding atmosphere, great visuals and sound. if using a non-GOG version, the game must be patched or it breaks at some point.

Betrayal at Krondor (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betrayal_at_Krondor) is a classic story-heavy RPG with a rich world and some great writing. it's really good, if you manage to overlook the awfully, terribly ugly 3d environments.

there are literally hundreds of other great DOS games, but I think that's enough for now. ;)

edit: and if you've taken ScummVM for a ride, be sure to take a look at Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zak_McKracken_and_the_Alien_Mindbenders). it's a bit less-known than other Lucas games from this period, but it's very very funny. and very strange.
oh, and the Gobliiins trilogy, and Full Throttle and The Dig are cool. and try Quest for Glory series for an epic adventure-RPG mix.

edit 2: aaand Discworld is funny like hell.

Oh man I almost forgot, Skyroads!  To get a good idea of this one, here's an HTML5 version. (http://openroadsgame.com/)

This one might actually be even more fun with a D-Pad, I've never tried it.  It's simplistic enough in control to map everything pretty easily anyway.

Post by: Psychlonic on August 02, 2016, 02:53:24 am
There's almost too many to list. Someone mentioned Darklands, that was amazing. Ultima VII was fun, VIII was panned but I really enjoyed both. You could seriously be a huge douche in both games and I always got a kick out of that.

Tyrian 2000 was an amazing vertical shooter I still play from time to time, amazing soundtrack, graphics, and upgrades.

Raptor - Call to the Shadows is basically the horizontal equivalent to Tyrian.

A lot of the later Advanced D&D games were super fun, specifically the two Dark Sun games and the Al-Qadim one were the best of that era IMO.

Fighting ports for DOS like the early Mortal Kombat games, Primal Rage, and a few others are the most arcade accurate from the time.

Albion is an amazing obscure RPG worth playing.

Imperium Galactica is a criminally overlooked space strategy game that's a lot of fun to play.

Daggerfall, Arena, Betrayal at Krondor, Mobius, Windwalker...

I could go on, but I'll spare the forum. I love classic PC gaming. A lot. To me that was a special era and a good period hardware set-up to play the games on is priceless.

For ScummVM don't forget the classic Sierra titles like Kings Quest, Space Quest, Police Quest, Quest for Glory, and Leisure Suit Larry. (Some of them have higher quality remakes for the first titles in the series).

Be sure to get the "CD" versions of the games where available, they include better music and full audio dialogue.

A few other good ones I don't believe were mentioned:

The Legend of Kyrandia
The Dig
Full Throttle
Sam and Max (you mentioned)
Indiana Jones

For Dosbox X-Com is a great classic (tip: you can edit the save game (more money to start?) on a PC before putting it on your flash card, it makes the game go faster, it's a long game otherwise).

Lastly Warcraft 1 and 2 are a must have for Dosbox.

Another World 20th anniversary edition was released a while ago. It's just like the original, only superior (gamepad support, remastered soundtrack, switching between the original and hi-res graphics etc.), so I guess it's the preferred way to play it now.

Ahh, Space Bats.  I was just thinking about that one today for some reason.  As I recall, the author was still selling it when he suddenly had a bad heart attack, and now it's been thrown into limbo.  Too bad.  It deserves more widespread acclaim.

On that note, Cash Invaders is pretty darn spiffy.
Title: Re: Suggestions for fun, classic MS-DOS games
Post by: Reiska on August 15, 2016, 01:17:43 am
Definitely second Master of Magic and Darklands, both are fabulous.  Darklands in particular was a huge influence on similarly open-ended games which came later, particularly the later Elder Scrolls games.  Master of Magic is basically Civilization II meets Magic: The Gathering with the latter's serial numbers filed off; the influence is unmistakable though.  Microprose had the Magic license at the time, so it's entirely possible the game may have started out with the Magic branding and they decided to separate it midway through development.

I feel like Might and Magic is metaphorically the Final Fantasy of PC first-person dungeon crawlers: the gameplay, even from the first title, is significantly more casual and less difficult than its contemporary competitors, and the game has more of a narrative focus than Wizardry or Bard's Tale ever did (probably rivaled by the AD&D Gold Box games though).  The analogy holds in one other way too; Might and Magic revels in referencing Star Trek throughout the franchise in much the same way FF does Star Wars.  Anyway, all five DOS Might and Magic games are pretty great, although the first is really rough around the edges nowadays.  I still think it's worth playing, but the series did get better with each successive entry at least through World of Xeen, and M&M6/7 (for Win 9x) are still good games as well.  (Disclaimer: M&M1 was the first RPG I ever played, so I may be biased.)

Speaking of Ultima IV, it's also an excellent game, for all that the DOS port is one of the worse incarnations of it.  DOS also offers Wizardry 1-7 for RPGs; however, the DOS ports of 1-5 are awful and I can't recommend playing those in good conscience.  (Even on the better platforms, they are seriously dated games.  If you really want to play Wizardry 1-3 or 5, play the SNES ports; if you really want to play Wizardry 4, play on the Apple II version.)  6 and 7 are DOS native though.  Neither are bad, although I think the contemporary Might and Magic entries are far superior.

Similarly, while Bard's Tale is considered a classic, the DOS ports of the series are the worst versions, avoid them.

The Magic Candle is an oft-forgotten classic DOS RPG too which is pretty good and does some things that were fairly ambitious for the time.  Give it a whirl.

It occurs to me that for some reason we still haven't seen the old Epic Megagames catalog make an appearance in one form or another.  That kicked off with ZZT, a game creator that people used to do some pretty amazing things – it game me a certain appreciation for what goes into even modern game design.  It inspired Megazeux, a similar and considerably more powerful program, particularly improved by its support for MOD music.  There were a lot of ambitious Megazeux projects that never got past the demo stage, but Bernard the Bard is probably one of my top ten gaming experiences ever.

Later games from the Epic catalog include Jill of the Jungle, which I never got around to playing, as well as Seek and Destroy, Traffic Department 2192, One Must Fall 2097, and of course Jazz Jackrabbit.

I meant specifically that for some reason these games haven't been made available digitally – of course, ZZT and OMF are genuinely freeware, and I think the same goes for Castle of the Winds, but it's strange that despite being alive and well, Epic hasn't made Jazz Jackrabbit available in one form or another.  (They even have their own Game Launcher now.)  They were still selling physical copies of everything for a surprisingly long time at epicclassics.com, but that's been kaput for a while now.
