Where can I download this game for Dosbox?

Post by loop4ever » Sun Jan 06, 2019 4:33

I've been looking for the 2nd and 3rd parts of "Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure: Forbidden Planet" for the longest time, can someone please show me where I can find it? Or if it's not available online maybe someone on here caan send me a zip file so I can download it. Please, I've been wanting to play the rest of the game since I was a kid. Also sorry if I posted this in the wrong place, I'm new here :o .

Looks like it's being sold on gog.com

Amazing that so many Part 2s and 3s don't have a price tag of $0.00 by now. Then again, who's to say they should? Maybe not so amazing.
Didn't the later episodes of Major Stryker become freeware?

The magic word is „abandongame“

There's always ways, but seeing as that's definitely past the boundaries of legality... ... ...

I don't think it's considered abandonware so long as someplace is selling it, either, so you may have no real choice.
