When downloading the game I only got 3 files. I clicked the area circled and this was the folder downloaded. Not sure why it's only getting three files.

Weird, can other people with this problem confirm this? It might be a problem with the server host.


Well would you look at the time, it's zombie o'clock!

I'm revisiting this thread because I finally sat down and beat the game the other night.  It was a genuinely fun game, like those on the Commodore I envied my friend for.

 

What I wanted to share was, like some games of that era, the 2nd stage (with the Necrons) was actually probably the hardest.  Like in the early days of game design, they give you some brief time just to learn the game, then quickly ramp up the difficulty TOO MUCH, but as soon as you get past that the game's fine.

 

There were 5 stages total, plenty of continues.  I actually forgot about this game, so I picked it back up, struggled past the 2nd stage, then 3rd and 4th were relatively straight forward.  The 5th and final stage was just a brutal grind, by design, as there are no special/heavy weapons and the enemies there are tough.

 

There's just enough video game plot to keep it going, it's actually quite brilliant how typical it is, for the era it's pretending to be.  Very fun, very pleased, will replay.

I have no idea what's going on with the missing files, I'm afraid.  My guess is, even in its zipped form, security software like anti-viruses can quarantine/delete files if they're over-sensitive.  This guy just made this game, didn't digitally sign it, no certificate, might've gotten stripped.  I honestly don't believe there are any viruses on it (I obviously checked before unzipping the file), or if there were, it was embedded in a really fun game anyway.
