    No, it’s not genocide…
    it’s a shareware game, maybe created by only one programmer, and with better graphics…
    I don’t remember if it runs on DOS or windows… 🙄

    What a coincidence, I just got through downloading Virtual PC… I plan on installing FreeDOS on it soon and trying out all my old DOS games. If you want, I can let you know how it goes.

    So far I’ve installed Win98 on it. It’s fun to play with for sure but don’t even think about playing 3D games unless you have a really high processor to back it up. The emulated vid card that it has doesn’t take advantage of any Video Card features. So it really doesn’t matter whether you have an integrated card or a GeForce 5500 like I have… Performance will be the same as if you had an integrated card all along. Another bummer is that you can only allow 16MB of vid memory.

    As for DOS games, I haven’t really played around with it that much. I’ve tried the DOS that Win98 runs on so far but I’ve been unable to run Warcraft 2 on it so far. I’ll test out more later.

    You might want to try virtualbox. I have 128 megs of ram on my video card it will let me use up to all 128 megs(i have not tested this but the setting is there). I stick with 32 megs. Any way keep me posted. You might want to try regular DOS not just a dos session on windows 98. I remember the good old days… 😉

    With DOSBox you don’t need anything else: http://dosbox.sourceforge.net

    I have DOSbox….. It has great compatibility but it also requires some computing power as well.

    The game you’re talking about is Blast Doors. I remember some fun times playing that game. I even tried to clone it for the Mac, for a high school programming class. I think the main reason I never finished it was that the only GUI toolkit I knew (other than Java AWT) was GLUT, and it is far too limiting for a game.

    For the record, I am just as surprised as you that their website is still up.

    Also for the record, Blast Doors used Direct3D.
