Mines of Titan (PC)
« on: August 06, 2008, 04:44:41 AM »
What are the chances that anyone here ever played Mines of Titan?  This was going to be a request on how to track down old games, but I found it yesterday just before making the post.

I played it on my old Apple IIe, but most people I found talking about it said they played it on Commodore 64.  Apparently it's also an almost identical updated version of an older game called The Mars Saga.

The basic premise is that you're guy stranded on the colonized moon of Jupiter.  Everyone lives in these underground cities.  You can travel on the surface and through the mines below, but it's a challenge.  Your overall mission is to escape, but it's going to take a while.  First you'll have to put together a team, make some money from bounties, up your skills and weapons, solve some mysteries, etc..

I guess it's an RPG.  The fighting system is a lot more fun though.  Anyone ever play Assassin?  Basically you get a certain number of actions per turn and so do each of your enemies.  So I could move forward two spots and shoot once and my opponent could move to the left 2 and throw a grenade, but we don't know what the other does until the turn plays out.  I like it.

I just played for a second to make sure it worked, but I have very fond memories.  It's very in depth and has a complex story.  I remember spending a lot of time with it as a kid.  While I got accomplished a lot in the story, I never got anywhere near close to finishing.  I'm excited to see if I can bash my way through it as an adult.
