Childhood Lost

Posted on 2013-03-14 08:02:28 byBelthezar69's avatarBelthezar69:

I do not even know where to begin singing the nostalgic praises I have for this game. The game itself is simple: unlimited ammunition, hordes of monsters, and secrets to discover on each level. This game is not difficult, but I found myself playing it again and again as a child.

Great relic, but not for everyone

A neat little series, and definitely interesting to check out as a curiosity, being one of the earliest FPS games. However, despite its historical status and marvelous 3D EGA visuals, I can't say I'd recommend it for anyone other than the extremely nostalgic or the most hardcore retro FPS fans, as the game hasn't really stood the test of time. Predating Wolfenstein 3D, the gameread more was certainly novel in its own era, but with its repetitive game mechanics, it doesn't quite hold up against its successors in the genre.

At Last, Catacomb Has Come to GOG!

What can I say about this game? When compared to other first person shooters, it's very basic and yet tremendously fun. You don't have to worry about too much. Just solve the mazes, blast monsters with unlimited fire bolts, and have a good time. Perhaps it's the nostalgia talking in that my first ever experience with a FPS was Catacombs Abyss. Even so, it's a great simple romp through dungeons and such with a delightful nostalgic feel.
