I DL Blasphemer
because i like Heretic saga.

Thanks a lot, MrFlibble.

...and I'm not convinced to this concept, just as I didn't like 3D remakes of Worms or Lemmings. They play like a completely different game, so don't fool us by using the established title.

On the other hand, Duke Nukem Manhattan Project had 3D (vector) graphics, while retaining 2D platformer gameplay. I loved it!

Okay, in fact I didn't know which game to designate as the closest original thing, Unreal or Quake, and chose Unreal for its tendency to have more spacious open areas, as well as a certain similarity in visuals.

As for your personal opinion about Cube, I find the games very playable. They don't always have perfect models or level design, but it's an overall quite an enjoyable experience nevertheless IMO.

Yep, I think I've heard about that one but somehow forgot it, thanks!

Oh yes, DNMP is a great game in this respect. I've never been a fan of the true 3D transition of an established pre-3D series (couldn't come to terms with Mortal Kombat 4 being full 3D for example), but DNMP is undoubtedly an excellent continuation of the series and a worthy successor of both the original platform games and Duke3D.

Off-topic: could you recommend similar games then? I only recall modern console remake of Prince of Persia. Nothing related to Sonic or Mario, please I really loved selected level design of DNMP, like the gritty subway (Max Payne-like), where you could almost get lost.

I haven't played Prince of Persia Classic but to the best of my knowledge it's the very same game but with full 3D graphics - the level design is just the same, unlike DNMP which manages to smoothly introduce the third dimension into the classic 2D side-scrolling platform scheme.

Honestly, I know not of other games that could be comparable to DNMP in this respect. I checked this one out only because it's part of the Duke Nukem franchise, and I don't know other games of this genre and era well.

Megabyte Punch comes to mind and ofc the New Giana Sisters game.

Thanks, but maybe I forgot to add: not Mario/Sonic, because I didn't like kiddie stuff even when I was a kid myself. DNMP was content-rated at least 15+. Oh, and older titles, preferably.

Same applies to me, that's why I'm asking on the forum - not even MobyGames has such advanced search/genre system as to find similar ones.

I downloaded Oolite and played it today and it's very much like original Elite, probably even easier when it comes to docking to a space station and space battles.

I didn't really play much Elite on PC but I spent heaps of time playing it on my C=64. Unfortunately, playing Oolite reminded me why I spent so much time - it takes bloody ages to get to a space station after hyper jump into the system, most of the time just flying with other ships, no conflicts, nothing.

But that's the gameplay of the original Elite, not this excellent remake, so if you loved Elite, this is definitely a great game for you.
