So I was playing this Stone Soup game that Troll linked the other day, and as I was playing it I got this strange sense of familiarity, like I'd seen the game before. I remembered an old game I used to play. It was on my Macintosh computer, back in '95 or '96. It was like Stone Soup, but it was a sci-fi game instead of a fantasy game.

I reminisced about it in Meebly, and I was wracking my brain about it, when Spluff, bless his soul, googles "sci-fi Macintosh roguelike" or the like, and he comes up with this game, Jaunttrooper Mission:Thunderbolt. Lo and behold, it is the game I remember. Fire your pellet gun at that blob over there! Watch out for giant spiders! Die constantly! Oh, the good times.

Anyway, I thought I'd share this old, old favorite of mine. It should work on any Windows computer (it works on my XP machine) The interface is actually pretty good, it being a professionally made game back in the day.

Included in the .rar is a Readme.nfo. Open it in wordpad or the like. This game came with one of those hella old-school DRM schemes that relied on a printed sheet that came with the game. The nfo file has the different symbols along with their respective passwords. You will be required to enter a password the first time you start the game. Enjoy!

I tried to open the readme.nfo, but it said the file was corrupt  :?

Any help?  I can't play without entering the security code.

I loved this game, but lost it a long time ago, and reading your post refreshed my memory! Would love to play this again!

Thanks!

Edit: Nevermind, I opened it with a notepad, and now I can read it.

I feel quite silly for asking this. But once I extract the download file, I get 5 folders labeled as "Disk #" and the NFO file. I had no trouble with the NFO, but how do you install/start the game? All the .exe files I find just give "Not compatible with the version of Windows you are running." And yes, I've played with the compatibility settings.

I still prefer to think of rugby in a more friendly way: Everyone tries to hug the guy with the ball. The team with the most hugs at the end of the game wins. Extra points for group hugs.

Which version of Windows are you running? It works fine on both my Vista laptop and XP desktop.

Just standard Vista. Maybe I am not clicking the right files?  :?
