hi

 

does anybody know of a dungeon crawler (ala Temple of Apshai)

or a Star Trek type game that offers

REAL-TIME combat; that is

not turn-based combat?

 

I hope you know what I am talking about!

 

thanks

🐺

Ishar has real time combat but not in the same way that you'd find on LOL or Warcraft.

 

Also, I guess you are looking for something like Homeworld, but I don't think there is something like that on the ST. The games I can think of are more like freespace.

I guess my question is, are you talking first person combat, or isometric real-time like Diablo?

well I'd settle for a top-down 'Rogue' type game (also like Temple of Apshai)

 

and I just viewed Diablo for the very first time on Youtube

and my jaw dropped open!

 

it's amazing what computers can do nowadays!

 

(I guess you can probably tell that I just turned 49!)

 

and to Christos,'Ishar' is in French sad to say.

 

hey while we're talking PCs, is Alienware still a formidable force for gaming?

Nowadays?  I mean, maybe that's the newest Diablo that you were viewing, but Diablo has been around for decades.  I was thinking more Diablo and Diablo II.

(and 46 here.... yeah, we've seen a lot.....)

Combat in Dungeon Master is awfully cool - if you're not tried it.

Thanks, D.L.

 

for some reason my mind immediately

compares something like Dungeon Master

to the game that set the bar for me - PC Quake

 

and decides that I probably would be having more

fun playing said game.

 

oh well

Ishar should be available in English and German.. I think you can choose the language and they're not separate releases?

Ayreon, can you point me to a working download of Ishar?

 

Merci.

Legend (the later version by another software house) and Shadowlands/ Shadow-worlds are games sort of in the Temple of Apshai style, can't fully remember if the former was real time entirely though (although I spent a lot of time on it a few years back). Nethack as well maybe or Times of Lore?

Oh, sorry. Thought we were talking about Atari ST games here.

 

If you're going to compare to later PC games, you're wasting your time.

DarkLord,

 

the last person to tell me

I'm 'wasting my time'

was my father.

 

In reference to my hanging out with

my American Indian friends.

 

I realize this may be inconsequential and

of no import to you,

but alas, this is how my mind works.

 

So, that said, I like Quake better than Dungeon Master.

 

No offense taken, and hopefully none given.

Nope, no offense.  :)

 

I love Guild Wars 2. It's a great MMO and I play it, my son plays it and my brother (occasionally)

plays it.

 

I like GW2 better than quite a few ST games. But it would be pointless of me to compare GW2 to

ST games. Apples and oranges, wasting time.

 

Coming into an ST forum, asking about ST games, comparing them to other ST titles (or even games from

other platforms of the same era) makes sense. When you start comparing them to (much) more modern games,

kinda lose focus though...

 

I hope you can see the point I'm trying to make here.  :)

Yea, I see your point.

 

Guild Wars 2 looks pretty amazing.

 

To Zogging H., thanks.

 

Times of Lore may just be the game.

It's good fun, but occasionally a bit buggy, so (I can't remember how the save works) save fairly often! You can occasionally get trapped in the scenery and there is also the rare complete crash, though that may have been down to my hardware.

well,

 

anypoop, I believe I merely overlooked

and taken for granted the so-called

'real-time star-trek type game' ive been looking for:

 

STAR RAIDERS, its own bad self!

 

flying around in an unoccupied quadrant

leads to Zylon enemies moving of their own accord, surrounding bases and what not.

 

btw, does anybody know how to restart the game,

after dying?

 

and how do i abort a mission?

 

please somebuddy.

Hmm, surprised no one has mentioned this yet, Star Raiders is a great game,

but you really need to play the 8bit version for the best experience.

 

Don't mean to come off sounding negative, but I think I'd be remiss if I didn't

point this out (and I actually like most ST games over their 8bit versions).

 

It's like Alternate Reality - the City. Awesome on the 8bit, not as good on the

ST...  :(

Has anyone noticed that in STAR RAIDERS,

 

the Zylons will not fly into a quadrant that you

are currently occupying (and yell 'Surprise!).

 

Meaning that the only way to fight them

is to Hyperspace into one of their quadrants.

 

Is this just me, or has anybody else noticed this?

 

:jango:
