Here's a pretty fun classic! GOG have released Alien Rampage from 1996 and it comes with a Linux version thanks to DOSBox.

Note: GOG themselves sent over a key, so I tested it out.

About the game
QuoteYour ship is in ruins. your cargo is lost... and you are one ticked-off alien trapped on a planet overrun by bloodthirsty mutants with the help of a handful of enslaved natives and enough firepower to level a city. Nothing can stop you from eradicating the low-life untharians who trashed your ship. blast everything in sight and you may survive...


I tested it out and it does work fine. DOSBox is pretty amazing for what it's able to do for classic games! The game certainly is on the gory side too, with enemies guts exploding everywhere when they die. I imagine back in 1996 this was pretty gory, but compared to what we have now it seems almost tame.

Here's a list of what you can expect:
  • 21 bone-crushing, gut-blasting levels of alien butt kicking to complete.
  • 7 ultra-lethal weapons
  • Huge blistering explosions
  • Over 30 festering life forms including 3 fully-rendered “overlords”
  • Quad-parallax scrolling
  • Fighting, jumping, shooting. action-packed adventure!
  • An equal test of brain & brawn
  • High impact graphics (for 1996 yeah, maybe)
