I'm relatively new to abandonia, but as a big Dune fan I had to download all the Dune games I could get and try them out. Each game had it's own good parts. The first game(as someone here already mentioned) may have appeared as done by somebody with an only basic idea of the storyline, but the game is awesome nonetheless.
Top Three Hated Moments.
1. When Duke Leto heard that a sietch had been taken over by the Harkonnen, yelled and said that he has to go on a mission he may not come back from and simply vanished from the storyline.
2.When Duke Leto was on the balcony speaking about Caladan and the dunes and suddenly starts quoting Lynch's Leto saying THE SLEEPER MUST AWAKEN.
3. When that annoying Shaddam couldn't leave me alone and just wanted more and more spice.
Top Three Weirdest Moments.
1.When I saw Duncan Idaho.
2.When I saw Thufir Hawat.
3.When I saw Shaddam Corrino IV and Baron Harkonnen.

Anyway, the rest of the game(besides the dull I've-got-nothin'-to-do moments) was a great combination of strategy and first-person adventure.

IIRC Jessica mentions his death later.

Mine out the first bunch of territories before you go to the desert and start having visions. The plot won't progress, the Emperor won't demand any Spice for a while and you'll have plenty of time to prepare to leap onto the new territories you find after that.

No need to repeat yourself. Since you did not state otherwise, I assume you've gotten the game from Abandonia.

The copy we host directly on the site is the floppy version. The CD version is available through the ISO Cellar.

I really liked Dune. I now play Mars Frontier on Facebook. Are there any other recent equivalents?

So many evenings spent with that game - fascinating plot, beautiful graphics (landscapes, sunsets) and interesting characters. It had only one disadvantage - plot in adventure layer of the game was very line one. There was only one path to finish it. But it doesn't matter overall, one of the best games in history!

I never came across a game which look like anything similar to Dune since Dune got out.

Well... Dune first and foremost is a novel. They used the novel to adapt a movie which turned out to be very popular at the time it got out and they wanted to cash in to that by making games out of it. It was a popular trend at the time.

Since the story is taken almost literally from the books and expanded to make a game out of it (same happened for Dune II) then there is very little room for the game designers to move past the main storyline plot and do something new.

Hi, I started to play this game recently. I Never played it before.

I was handling the situation, sending the spice to the emperor, taking rides with Harah finding new sietches, meeting Stilgar with his sietches, discovering one village and heard for another one near by, but I couldn't take the weapons I found on my own palace.
Maybe is not that difficult, but I don't know how to take them.

Any help on this?

IIRC you need to move a group of fremen to the same location and then you'll be able to equip the weapons on the planet map.

I returned to this today.

I try to do that, but they don't want to go to the palace. And if you order them to go and search for equipment, they don't know where to go.

I even read a few walkthroughs and none of them say something to how use that weapons. I'm starting to think that those weapons can't be taken, but I found really confusing (and lame) finding an armory full of weapons on my own palace and later that you can't even use them for no reason.

Now I'm doubting whether I'm stuck or trying to do something that it's not allowed.
