I can't remember which platform it was on, either the really old pre 286 ibm pc's, or the apple 2. I remember it everyonce in a while, but can never find it. It is a look down fighter. You have a shield and some weapon, I think is just a sword. The guys look like they are dressed in padded armor of some sort, kind of like the Guyver(sp). You run around looking for each other, and sometimes you come across these disks that float, and let you move very fast. You can cut off the other guys arm if he doesn't block fast enough, and blood splatters everywhere. Maybe that isn't enough of a description but that is about all I remember of it at the moment. Anyone remember, or still have it in there old collection?

I know the game you're talking about. Two players run or fly around on faster moving discs chopping off each others body parts before a good blow lands and you are killed. Different levels of armor - you can find pieces I think. You can maneuver your arm around so you can do glancing blows and stuff ( I recall having an axe fully extended and strafing my opponent). I had it for the apple 2 but now can't even remember it's name :(

Thanks, that at least narrows my searching a bit. I couldn't remember which it was. Back then I was lucky enough to have access to both systems, so I couldn't remember where to start looking.

I have that game still somewhere. I had two Apple //e and something around 400+ disks. Still in the shed somewhere. lol I'll see if I can still find it.

Shooter69 and Redhorse Thanks I found it finally. It is called bilestod. Since Shotter 69 helped me narrow it down, I found a site that had the emulator for the apple to run on win 98, and the game rom. Here is the place if you are interested. www.classicgaming.com Too bad it doesn't look as cool as I remember it. Still I will be playing it for a while. The old ones are still better written.

I found about 400 of the disks in an old computer hutch I had. The games are somewhere else. I now remember I had something like 700 disks. 400 of the were games. Yea, thats the name of the game. If I remember correctly the controls suck, but the graphics at the time were above par.

Karateka, it was for the Apple. A couple of other neat gamez were Aztec and Rescue Radiers.

I used to love to play Load Runner.

Yea Karateka was cool. Besides the arcade games: Pacman, Ms Pacman, Dig Dug, Moon Patrol, Spy Hunter, etc.. Some of my favorites: Miner 2049er, Kings Quest series, Leisure Suite Larry, Goonies, Bard's Tale, Wolfenstein, Pirates, Summer Games, Winter Games, World Games, Wings of Fury, Zaxxon ...

Anybody remember the "Temple of Apshai" series. Used to play it on the TRaSh-80. D&D type game....when you entered a room you had to look up the room # in a book to find out what the monster and the treasure was. Or how about Slag. Combination of Risk and Missle Command. It rocked.

There are web sites that are set up just for the downloading of these old obsolete games. I found some by accident while I was.......Uh never mind! Gotta go!

That's fine by me. Like I said, I did find it, and the place to download other games and emulators for the pc. You can get load runner from there, and an apple emulator so you can play it on win98.

Your imgination provided the "graphics". My character "Dork the Dauntless" spent many an hour crawling through those ruins (sigh...) Tomac

I think I recently trashed the casette tape I had that game on. The TRaSh-80 when a LONG time before. I think I still have Zork on diskette around here somewhere. I wonder if it still works?

I remember that game. I think it was battle something. I remember it was a cool game because you can chop off both arms.
