Favorite Apogee Game (Besides Keen)?

Post by The Keen Commander »

Just curious what is everybody's favorite non-Keen Apogee release? Mine is probably Hocus Pocus (which incidentally, Tom Hall was involved with, coincidence? I doubt it :p ), but I also loved Wacky Wheels, Cosmo, and Raptor.
I'd like to get a Futurama mod going. Here's what I've got so far:

Apogee release? Um..... I guess it was Secret Agent Mission One. I loved that game for several reasons. However, I don't seem to remember them.
It just might be done someday. The chance is always there.

Monster bash and wacky wheels are more fun than they look.

Raptor for the SWEEET guitar solos.

However, the game could have used more missions.

Raptor - Bought the full version back then, that says it all.

I always loved Wacky Wheels, Hocus Pocus has the best music ever, and the most repetitive leveldesign in history. Cosmo is cute, but gets on my nerves after a while, as you usually spend hours just hopping on enemies.
Monster Bash is great, but a little bit on the hard side.

What about Duke Nukem 1? That was a good game.

Duke Nukem II.
Rise of the Triad.

Both games were awesome.

Crystal Caves. First Apogee game I played, first Shareware game I played, and first game I have memories of wanting to 100% completion a game. It's also the game that introduced me to Commander Keen. :)

I liked Episode 1 of both Cosmo, Bio Menace and Monster Bash--the stomach levels in Cosmo, and some of the later levels in both Bio Menace and Monster Bash were really more irritating than I felt was worthwhile.

Wacky Wheels. I have a memory from when I was like 7 of sitting in a small computer room (dedicated to a single computer), playing two-player Wacky Wheels, with a 13-year-old female friend (sadly passed away a few years back in a motorcycle accident :( ), swearing our heads off at each other. Good times, good times.

Hocus Pocus and Monster Bash. I remember the night I beat hocus pocus and what had felt like an epic battle against the mad monks of mellenwah.

I also enjoyed Cosmo and Raptor, and to a lesser extent Secret Agent.

Duke Nukem for sure. I also agree that Cosmo got on my nerves fast.

Crystal Caves, I think. But I also like and liked Secret Agent, Wacky Wheels, Duke Nukum. Raptor is cool too. I feel like playing one of the games now... :)

I like them all! Well, maybe not all, but let's say 90% of their games. They were my favorite game developer/publisher from my childhood!

However I didn't played Beyond the Titanic, Block Five or Kroz Series, though I'm sure they would be quite nice.

So, from Pharaoh's Tomb, Monuments of Mars and Crystal Caves (1990-1991 to date), I like them all, but it's more easy for me to point only the exceptions: Stargunner, Monster Bash (just played a bit), Word/Math Rescue (not my kind of games), Realm of Chaos (didn't played this, but looks like crap) and Xenophage: Alien Bloodsport (looks like crap too).
