Make sure you do the following:
At the main menu, goto 'story' and press return. When you get to a story
page, press cnt, alt, F10 at the same time until the main menu reappears.

But I do like how your head goes up in smoke when you get killed. :p
haha, I used to play this when I was playing Keen when I was like 6! I could never get over how slow his movements were!

I always associated GateWorld and Xargon......

haha, yeah, the head thing was well done but kinda freaked me out a little at that age - a legit reason for not dying!

I rather liked the game!

Yes there is some similarity, but this is far less a "friendly" game!

You're probably using DOSBox. CTRL+F10 is used in DOSBox for capturing/releasing the mouse and this conflicts with the cheat-enable-key-combo. So use DOSBox's KeyMapper to change the key-combo for the capturing/releasing of the mouse.

Now, go play Rallo Gump. :)
It's similar to GateWorld; it even has the same cheat codes. :)

Someone should make an LP of this to make fun of it and satisfy everyone's masacism (SP?). I got a lot of time on my hands, dunno if I'd be up to it but I'd like to try it out at least.

masacism (SP?)
Depends on what word you were trying to say... machosism?

As for an LP... Why not? A video LP would be best for this I think.

That's the word I meant to say. Thanks RivaStyle :dopekeen

I downloaded the games and looked at episode 1, with dosbox recording the footage. Oh my goodness, I haven't even started PLAYING the game yet, and there's enough from just the text in the title menu, the demos, the intro story, and the imfamous previews screen to talk about for a whole video :dead

Let's Play Gateworld Part 1

This isn't enough to warrant another topic for now. I'm not even sure I'll have the patience to beat episode 1, let alone all three.
