Anyone know the title to this game?

Postby cpages2 » Mon Feb 07, 2011 10:25 pm

I dont have many clues here but I have been trying to track it down forever

1) Came out around 1994-1997
2) The premise of the game was you where exploring an island (believe it was in Bermuda triangle) that had some weird radiation coming from it?
3) It was semi first person (FMV/CGI), you controlled a robot that moved around the island
4) You had to watch your radiation as you moved around
5) I believe the story line was the world would end if you didn't find out the source of the trouble. I vaguely remember if you died the end video would talk about world ending.
6) I know the packaging of the game was unique
7) I remember there being monsters on the island that would attack you.

Thats all I remember now. Been trying to think of the name forever, if anyone knows I would appreciate it.

Dude, I have been googling various key words from your description and coming up with nothing... any idea on who made the game or anything else?

Sorry man I wish I knew. Trust me I have been on google for hours on end trying to find it with no luck. Its just some one off game I remember playing back in the day and cannot for the life of me remember it.

His thread made me think of doing the same -

- There was a computer game (PC/DOS)
- It was one of those that had like 16 colors (red, white, green, etc)
- Had the still picture on the top half of the screen
- Text on the bottom of the screen
- I want to say that it had "Dragon" somewhere in the name
- You play the role of a male, young, (Magician?)
- I keep thinking it's called "Dragonbane" - but that doesn't appear to be the game

It wasn't just a rectangular box. it has a 3d cut out effect to it with the CD in the middle (like the daedalus encounter).

Trust be told the game play was very similar to the daedalus encounter

Also, you mention FMV/CGI... so was it a Windows game? Not DOS?

Crikey, the name made me think it was it. Looking at the graphics for Dragonsphere, that's far too recent looking...

That's definitely not 16 colours lol. Great that you found it, though. I love these "what's the name of this game?" threads. Fascinating.

Yeah, I think that's actually CGA.

I think you're looking for a game called Maabus.

So much nostalgia there... boy, those were the days ... how much you could do with FOUR simultaneous colors!!
