####      BOPPIN' v1.1 from APOGEE!     ####
#### Variety jammed arcade/puzzle game! ####
In an alternate *arcade game* universe, you
must free dozens of imprisoned enemies from
other video games. Each level has unique VGA
graphics in this unusual game. Violence mode
provided. Cool animation & cinematics. MIDI
music & digital sound for all popular cards.
One or two can play together.  Level editor
in full version, plus 160 levels! Shareware.
By Accursed Toys. Supports two joysticks.

This is a really fun game.  You play the roll of Yeet and Boik - to funky alien monsters, who need to save other video game monster who have been trapped by the 'too-good' Mr HunnyBunz the teddy bear.  This is a simple but addictive puzzle solver where you have to pickup and throw blocks into the right location to make a matching pattern.  This game runs well under Virtual PC - though I had to use SLOWDOWN  in order to make it playable:

Interestingly enough the author of this game has also released a Windows XP compatible version of this game that uses DirectX - and can be downloaded here: http://atoys.com/files/bopinst205.exe.  You can also download the original DOS version of this game from here: http://www.dosgamesarchive.com/download/game/99

  • Did you try it with the -blood switch? :)  (no joke, read through the *whole* help file...)
  • Thanks for this blog. I do alot of work with VS2005.

    I see that you use are using DOS to 'emulate' these games. What version of DOS are you using and where can I get a copy? I will pay if I have to.

    Thanks again for this wealth of VPC and gaming knowledge. :)
  • Have you by any chance got "Sacrifice" by Shiny / Interplay working on a Virtual PC?

  • David -

    Hmm...  That did not do anything here.

    Quazi -

    I use MS-DOS 6.22 - which Microsoft (unfortunately) no longer sells.  Your best bet is EBay.

    Steven -

    No - I never played that game and hence do not have a copy to test.

    Cheers,
    Ben

    It's sold as part of a collection, being downloadable by customers who buy MSDN subscriptions.  However, I've read that the downloadable version is an upgrade version and it can be pretty tough to force it to install.
