Free retro game Bio Menace now available from GOG on Linux

Join top CIA tough guy, Snake Logan as he battles for his life against ferocious monsters created by an evil and twisted mastermind. A free game now available on Linux thanks to GOG.

I actually recognise the game, so it's possible I played it many years ago on another platform. I really do love GOG bringing us classic games back. This title uses DOSBox as it's an oldie.

Features (Official list)
- Groundbreaking: Developed using a game engine developed by Id Software, designers of Quake.
- A Delight to Fight: Fantastically-animated creatures to kill, menacing robotic enemies to outwit and big boss creatures to battle!
- Nukem 'n' Dukem: Non-stop, Duke Nukem-style, kick-'em-in-the-butt, shoot-everything action!
- Secret Weapon: An arsenal weapons at your disposal - plus four secret weapons and maneuvers.
- Save Your City: Three skill levels, joystick support, game saves, hidden areas and more.

Hah, when I was 10 or so, I remember playing the shareware version (amongst many others) on some compilation disc my father got me. Brings back memories amongst other Apogee titles. :)

It's also worth noting, that the publisher (3D Realms) that holds the lot of these dosbox titles on Steam (34) is probably going to release their entire catalog (finally) on Linux anytime now. Every one of them have activity on Steamdb (20 days old), including this one. Would be nice to just get them all in a single bundle as they are currently offered on Steam.

Same story here. Most of these games were incredibly terrible, but fortunately there were a few Apogee titles on there. I am pretty glad I grew up with games such as Duke Nukem 2, Commander Keen, BioMenace and of course Raptor. I don't know why, but the atmosphere of Raptor gave me the creeps - Especially that character creation in the beginning.

It was at the time - around 97 or 98 I believe - when all the lonely children got their N64 for christmas and were major douchebags about it.

Anyone remember those games they used to put into Cereal Boxes and other places like Chex Quest

Those games had a strange charm to them.

And then there was G-Nome too

We've come a long way since then in PC gaming :)
