More info I can think of.

-All levels were randomly constructed, like the map of Diablo.
-No music. Only sound effect
-The game was sci-fi RPG. No magic whatsoever.
-There was an enemy robot named "sentinel".
-The first level was full of bats.
-The game was turn-based, but enemy can hit twice if it is much faster.
-The early levels had a fearsome enemy name "red fang" (or --- fang I could not remember) It had a poisonous attack. The character will die instantly if after defeating it and eat it.
- There were many types of guns, i.e., pistol, big pistol, laser gun, or even a laser rifle.
- The deeper level had a poisonous swamp. Need a "bio suit" to walk without harm.

Thanks a million for anyone's help.

Help me find this old Mac game from the late 80s -90s

So I have been trying to find the name of this game I used to play as a kid on our old mac. I have no idea what mac it was but I know it was black and white. It was around the same time that I was playing Shufflepuck Café (see the video 1:25 mark) so this should give you an idea of the age and era.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLaOxOlh0RA

The only things I can remember about the game are as follows:
*I think it was an adventure game or RPG or dungeon castle type game.
*I think it had large maps/dungeons as my dad had a huge file filled with the printed maps.
*It was black and white
*You played from a top down view
*either when you died or entered a new room, Mozarts Requiem Dies Irae would play (the first 10 seconds or so.... see the video below)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqaARDsiJv4

If any of you guys have any ideas please post. When I found the video for Shufflepuck Café my heart melted with nostalgia.

Cheers guys.

There is Dark Castle, but that is not top down, and has the Beethoven's 9th in the start.

TaskMaker is top down, but i don't think there is music

Dark Castle has Bach's Toccata & Fugue at the start, not Ode to Joy.

You are of course right!
Been awhile since I've played it. I was also thinking of the fifth, and not ninth, I dunno why i wrote 9th

But yes, it's Toccata and Fugue.

Help me identify a late 90's mac game.

I've been trying to figure out the name of a late 90's mac game I played on my Performa. Pretty sure I got the demo from the bundled CD that came with my monthly MacAddict subscription.

All I remember was a '3d' office (maybe government) environment. You had a pistol and were trying to escape a hostile group that had infested the building.

Anyone?

That sounded right but none of the screen caps I found online looked like the game I had in mind.

I dug out my collection of MacAddicts and started thumbing through them and found it!

Prime Target

http://hg101.proboards.com/index.cgi...&page=1#156858

I've got the demo sitting on the MacAddict 7 CD, maybe I'll dig out one of my OS9 capable machines and play.

Thanks!

You could jump off things and glide at times, and had a little gun on your right hand. There was a weird little decoy thing you could deploy at times as well.

I can't for the life of me remember the name, but I wouldn't mind checking it out again!

Please let me know.
MDK is the game you're looking for, I believe.

thought someone had answered this one before, but didn't see it in the replies.

Help identifying this old Mac game

I've been googling like crazy but cannot find it in any lists of classic mac games.

The game consists of a grid with a kind of labyrinth, where your character and the computers character is placed randomly at the start.

The game is turn based and you play your turn by specifying what you character should do, for example go two steps forward and shoot your gun to the left. When you are done the characters plays out their moves at the same time. The goal is to kill the opponent by outsmarting their moves.
You could also choose from different types of bullets, like explosive bullets, and maybe even other weapons to.

As i remember the game is black and white, and the characters looks kind of like stick figures.

We played it around 1996-97 I think, at the same time we played bubble trouble and worms 1.


Any help is appreciated!

This game certainly isn't what you're talking about, but it sure sounds like a 2012 version of it. Check it out, it's got great reviews.

Trying to find an old Mac game..

I remember playing it as a kid. It was in the mid 1990s. All I remember about it was that it was a puzzle type game and a guy kept getting locked in rooms and had to find a key or keys to get to the next room. There were always obstacles in the way too, so it was tricky getting certain keys.

From playing on a few macs back in the day, this seemed to be a rather common game.

Thanks for looking, but no.

The background was white and it seemed like there were blocks, though I might be confusing two things. There was color though.

This might have been on Windows 3.1 actually.

*Sigh* Sorry I can't be more helpful. It was a long time ago :/

Lode Runner? The Mac version I had was black and white, but it is a little older than the time frame you are thinking of.

Scarab of Ra was another game with rooms and keys, but also older.

Does anyone remember this game?

Trying to remember the name of a game from the early 90's, a very early multiplayer networked game we played on our iMacs (possibly before but I remember it as being in colour)...

It was very blocky but in a 3D environment, you were a vehicle or character with long stilt-like legs and you moved around trying to fire at the other players. It was very simple and linear....and I can't remember the name! Google hasn't shown anything up yet. Does it ring a bell with anyone?

Thanks in advance!
