Retailers are extending their return policies for Christmas: Full List of Shops Extending Returns Policies for Christmas

Don't wait till you see the whites of their eyes...
Don't kid yourself it will be over by Christmas...
Don't try to shut out the screams...
And don't forget to wash your hands afterwards...


From a queue of some 360 "eager" conscripts waiting to go to war, a team of up to six will "volunteer" for each new mission. Encourage your soldiers to shoot anything that moves, throw grenades, fire bazookas, drive tanks, fly choppers, split up and do their own thing... and die... Guide your no-hoper's troop straight through deadly missions. And if you lose some of them? There's more where that came from...

-Action-driven, fast-paced classic arcade gameplay

-A mix of tactical insight and fast reflexes required, a good micro would be a plus

-War has never been so much fun!

    If you like this, checkout zero sievert. Modern take on similar mechanics, with a lot more depth.

    i'll probably get this just cos i love the game, but Amiga version was much better than the DOS version. I found a site years ago which allowed you to play Amiga games without having to install anything cant find it any more though.

    My first PC I bought around early 90s from a trust fund I had I had to apply to courts and convince them it was an educational purchase.. I pulled that wool good! I was about 13

    386sx with 2MB of RAM a 250MB HDD and above all it came with SVGA graphics! I got a Dot Matrix printer with it from Dixons and bundled in the purchase was Commanche and Cannon Fodder..

    Same year Doom came out. (edited)

    Blast from the past.

    Doom was designed for the 486 (or maybe it was the 386DX? I think 486), so had to run in the reduced letterbox mode on my 386SX - 33MHz, still - amazing times.

    That box did wonders for my own education in all honesty. I wouldn't have my job/career now if it wasn't for it. Learning batch scripts then qbasic.

    Society has brought computers to the masses and education on demand that didn't exist then. But if I'd grown up in these times, I don't think I'd be remotely the same person. It's weird. I definitely see what the raspberry pi foundation were going for.

    Not that anyone asked and I've contributed nothing. Sorry everyone.

    Whats funny is I cannot for the life of me remember that song, and i played this to death!! and i think i know why, my PC didnt have a sound card for the first couple of years so it was inbuilt speaker sounds only and I am sure the song would not play over that.
    Abc_defg100's avatar
    Sorry to continuously reply to you here.

    We went from pc speaker to adlib and then (eventually) major upgrade to more modern systems with sound blaster compatibility.

    PC speaker was horrible but there are quite a few oldies I remember with the adlib audio when everyone looks back and it's the soundblaster in videos and things. Really does affect the nostalgia even where it's objectively better.

    Are any of these classics on mobile. I'm so surprised with the advent of mobile gaming that loads of DOS games didn't get converted to mobile games.
    ws007's avatar
    modern pc's can't play dos games, it would cost too much to convert/rewrite to put them on a mobile.

    saying that any dos emulators on mobile?
