    I remember when I was young I played Doom, Quake 2, and Duke Nukem, but I also played another game and I can't quite recall what it is...

    It was another DOS FPS, and the colors were very bright, vidid. You were in I thnk a building, which had 10(?) floors, and you were shooting guys in white labcoats.

    WHAT IS IT?

    I don't remember, if I did I could track it down myself [​IMG]

    Scorpei, please find out!

    I remember having great fun. I also remember on the higher floors, there was a guy that looked like a president that randomly teleported in and tried to shoot you. That scared the shit out of me.

    I think that is what you mean. Great game really, good remake/port material.

    You're not in a building in Rise of the Triad and you don't kill people with white coats.

    Well, there is Die Hard: Nakatomi Plaza but I'm sure that's not the one you're looking for because it's a 2002 game: http://pc.ign.com/objects/016/016407.html

    Ghehe, well the building thing is partially true, I seem to remember a building in the first level but that could be me (also guys in white coats in the first room but I guess my memory is faulty [​IMG]). Still a good game though (with released source, yay).

    Black stone is also by apogee software though.

    I was about to say Corridor 7, but that one was on CD and worked on Windows 95.
    But it was colorful as hell.

    All this reminds me that I WANT a remake of the original Blood. Ah, co-op madness and kicking heads around.

    Alright here is the thing. It might be a Doom mod too. I remember playing a Mr. Smiley Head mod of Doom when I was little and that was helluva fun too !!!

    By the way, it isn't Wolfenstein 3D, right? xD

    EDIT: sorry didn't your post xD You already found it !!

    That game is BLAKE STONE. Was kinda fun in the day, remember bothering to finish it at least but never bothered to replay it either. Hell the labcoats+the era you listed had me, that screenshot confirmed it.

    Be hard not to considering how many places that got stuffed onto between various computers, consoles and handhelds. I'd guess there has to be a bare minimum of 12 versions of that game out there at least without running a check on gamefaqs.

    Prince Of Persia was best on the PC, Amiga and ST though. Hated the SNES and Megadrive version, changing the animation seemed to change the playability and put me off totally.

    Does anyone remember Karateka from Broderbund? If I remember right it was an earlier game by the guy who did PoP.
