Default The amazing adventures of ANSI Dude

I remember I originally found it in a popular DOS shareware collection in 2 CDs (something like The Complete Encyclopedia of Games). It was a ASCII-based roguelike in a Sci-Fi setting (i remember this because you could choose between various weapons, among them there was something like a plasma gun). In the first level, If i recall correctly, you had just crashed into a planet and you had to explore it. I'm almost sure it's on Mobygames somewhere, as I think I saw it some time ago, but I'm unable to find it. Please help.

Do you recall the approximate year you got that shareware collection?

I've checked the list, but it's not there. Unfrotunately I'm unable to recall the year I got the collection.

EDIT: I found the CD compilation! Let me see if it's there.

I found it! I found it! "The amazing adventures of Ansidude"!

LOL, might as well be the weirdest title I've ever seen.

It's abandoned .
You can easily find it on the net, would you mind reviewing it?

Post Amazing Adventures of ANSI Dude, The

Where can I find this enchantingly titled number / potential hunk of tripe?

I had never heard of this game until I spotted the name while trawling threads from ages past...
I'd like to give it a good playing-thru and review its performance, snuggled up together over a hot laptop.

Cool - Moby Games makes it sound like a game from the Repton series.
I miss Repton...

Google?
The shareware version is easy to find. It's actually the full game, there's only a counter at the beginning of each level (you have to wait a few seconds before you can play).

Ah, I see - I wasn't aware of that. Thought that was a demo version, as the game's supposed to have more levels than seems apparent in the shareware version, according to moby.

Nice one Zirkoni!

hmm... most of the google hits point back to this and the other thread, here.

Nice - Ralackk helped me translate this page. It's got a link for download.

http://www.joguinhosantigos.com/2007...ansi-dude.html


A 2.1 Gig download for an archive of 120Kb would've taken me weeks...

You can get shareware games easily from CD.TEXTFILES.COM.
