This is a classic find your
way through the maze game. You collect the four keys to unlock the doors that
help you escape from the dungeon. Three complete episodes lead you to the truth
about the evil Dragon Grimlor. This game was was written in the early 1990's and
distributed on Bulletin Board Systems (BBS's) accessed by computers using
modems. I sold it on a 3.5 720k floppy disk.
This is the sequel that leads you further
into the dungeons. Grimlor is back and stronger than ever. Three complete
episodes. This game has more traps and puzzles to solve. Move boulders to block
arrow shooting walls, use rivers to float to secret rooms and teleporters to
jump to hidden treasures. Help to destroy Grimlor's source or power and save the
village. This was the second in the Grimlor series and sold much better than the
This is an unfinished game based on the
Grimlor engine. It is a trip into your computer to hunt down viruses and save
your system. The reviewer at www.ClassicDosGames.com really liked this game, The first
level is complete and is probably my best effort on level design in a game of
this type. A windows based level editor is included if you are interested in
building your own levels!
Okay, this was way out there. I was inspired,
but the final result was something less than my vision. A.I. Wars was developed
a few years later and hit much closer to my mark.
General Budda's Labyrinth
This was my first attempt at a large
find-your-way-through-the-maze type game. Three episodes. Budda was a nickname
some of my nieces and nephews gave me. I was still figuring our sprite collision
techniques so it is very unforgiving, you might get frustrated trying to
navigate the narrower paths. Also the orbs sometimes eat away at the level
walls. At the time it was a bug but I likes the way it looked so it became a
NOTES ABOUT THIS
These games were written back in the days of the DOS operating system and 486 processors so the graphics, sounds and game play and system requirements are dated. Note that Solder Runner
only had one episode completed - if you select the other two episodes you'll get
The Solder Runner download contains a program named 'WinLevEd.EXE'
witch allows you to edit or create your own game episodes (Levels). This tool can be used with both Solder Runner and The Dungeons of Grimlor Series (you'll need to rename the level files for Grimlor to edit them with this tool). If you develop any game levels that you want to share send them to John.Reder@TacticalNeuronics.com and we'll put them here!
Solder Runner and The
Dungeons of Grimlor II can be played at a playable speed on faster machines by
editing the file named SPEEDAT.DOG or SPEEDAT.SR and changing the number to
something like 300000. The higher the number, the slower the animation. You
might want to use a program like DOSBOX to emulate a slower processor for more
playable speeds on faster computers.
