Archimedean Dynasty - Available on G.O.G
« on: November 23, 2017, 08:32:03 AM »
I spotted this was on GOG the other day (and apparently has been for two years now, which suggests I've been remiss in checking GOG). Not downloaded it yet because I want a clear run of time to lose myself in it.

I played this back when it was released in the late 90s and it was such a superb game. Great story and great gameplay, which has the challenge level set just right. Some of the missions involve a bit of lateral thinking and taking advantage of features of the aquatic setting, such as shutting your submarine down and using water currents to drift you past security emplacements or when your defensive systems fail, piloting in such a way that incoming torpedos fly into the sea bed or rocky outcroppings.

Graphically dated by today's standards but, still evocative of the undersea setting.

At only 1.59 on GOG this is an absolute bargain.

The graphics look pretty good for 1996.  I love GoG for having stuff I can't get anywhere else.
