Ancient DOS Games --- Episode 157

Xerix & Xerix II




Additional Information and Corrections:

  • Here's links to Xerix and Xerix II on the RGB Classic Games website: http://www.classicdosgames.com/game/Xerix.html - http://www.classicdosgames.com/game/Xerix_II%3A_The_Caverns_of_Mars.html


  • I should point out that standards are MUCH higher nowadays, with students attending game design classes in post-secondary institutions being expected to produce much stronger material. Part of the reason for this is the prevalence of 3D (which is what commercial developers work with almost exclusively) and because of the vast array of tools and libraries available now, such as Unity. In the early 90s, these kinds of options simply didn't exist. :/


  • Just a reminder that the limitations with keys locking up when trying to press multiple keys on a keyboard at once are hardware-based, not software-based, thus using the DOSBox keymapper to map joystick/gamepad buttons to keyboard keys doesn't factor into this limit, meaning if you have several keys held down at the software level thanks to a mapped joystick or gamepad, the actual keyboard itself will still function as well as it should. :B
