|Micro-review: Space Quest 0: Replicated
(04 Aug 2003 at 23:39)
|I really enjoyed playing an unofficial prequel to Space Quest called Space Quest 0: Replicated. It's got EGA graphics, 2-channel bleep music, and was even written with the for Sierra AGI language (though it runs in a modern port of that). It was a little short by modern standards, but it could have easily been a real Space Quest game in 1988...
|Space Quest 0: Replicated won't work on my computer, because I have Windows XP.
|I have XP too, and it worked for me? You might need to get a Windows AGI interpreter...
|Try looking for a grabbing DosBox. It's an emulator that runs under windows. Not only does it emulate a 486, it emulates several soundcards, allowing you to play many of the older SQ series games.
|supposed to say look for and grabbing
|I've used DosBox, which is great, although these emulators for the adventure game format are even better because you can use them at higher resolution, etc.
