Current Weekend Spot: Beating Skyrim for Windows 3.11

Last night I decided to take a break from working on my SFM project for right now and play some Castle of the Winds in Windows 3.11 under DOSBox, and so far I have fought my way through 187 monsters scattered around in different areas and finally got to the notoriously Evil Hill Giant Leader known as Hrungnir:

I have successfully defeated Hrungnir, the Hill Giant leader, and his ogre henchmen just by shooting some Fireballs at them. After defeating Hrungnir I grabbed the Amulet of Kings from his dead body. It’s a special kind of amulet that lets me use the item in order to beat the game:

That was only the first part of the game. So now I’m at the point where I must get everything ready for the second part of the game right now, and I’ll be able to move on to Part 2 as soon I got all the stuff that I need.

Playing around some Castle of the Winds

Last night I’ve been doing some Castle of the Winds in Windows 3.11 under DOSBox since it’s been a long time since I played it during the Windows XP years. Here’s a screenshot of what the gameplay looks like in the game:

So far I have made some good progress. I have journeyed my way along the highway that leads to the village of Bjarnarhaven since the village at the very beginning of the game got mysteriously burned down. I am now currently in Fortress level 4 of this game, but I’ll plan going to the fifth Fortress Level whenever I feel like playing Castle of the Winds again. 🙂

Some Old School Arcade Pool for DOS

Been playing a bit of an old DOS game that I’ve never tried out under DOSBox earlier this evening. It’s called Arcade Pool, a game where you can compete a Pool competition against other computer players and/or human players. Here’s a screenshot of what this game would look like:

All you got to do is use the left mouse button to line up the cue ball and then right click to fire away to see if any balls would go down the sinker holes until there is a winner at the end. I like how there’s different Pool games such as Custom Pool, US Open Pool, UK Open Pool, etc.

This here is a screenshot of the results made in the game of Pool that has numbers of shots made, fouls made and balls sunk down. This game is fun to play but hard to score some shots when it comes to making fouls and misses. It will now be added to my private collection of old DOS games.

Alxala Goes Underground

I’ve been testing out Need For Speed Underground under Windows 10 the other day, and so far the program and gameplay both seem to be behaving properly. The graphics and textures in this racing game are really nice, and what I like about this are the background sound effects, billboards and street signs. Here are a couple pictures of street signs in NFSU that are my most favorite:

The reason why I like the street signs is because they are much taller than the ones in Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2. 🙂 I’d say this is still a good old-school racing game to me, but I think Hot Pursuit 2 is way better than this. Oh, and what I also like about NFSU is you can move the cursor around during a race, which I find that very interesting.

Feelin’ The Need For Speed

I decided to take a break from Bawderlands Dos and play around some Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2, a racing game where you have to race against opponent racers while trying to get away from the chasing cop cars as you complete through different races like Single Race, Lap Knockout, etc.

So far this old-school racing game seems to be running fine on my computer just like Need For Speed Underground, and I have managed to win two gold medals right off the bat in the Championship race branch and completed a few races in Single Challenge mode, which that part is what like about in this game. 🙂

And now for no strange reason here’s a screenshot of my most favorite street sign in Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2:

The reason why is because I like the artwork, the background color and all the words on the sign in two font types which are Brush Script MT and Times New Roman. Oh, and another reason why is because I love lighthouses. 🙂

I Got The Monopoly Fever

Been playing an old-school board game Monopoly (not for the PC) with my mother San_San earlier this afternoon since it’s been a long time for the both of us. San_San chose Dog as her game piece because she gets the Dog just about every game on Monopoly, and I went for the Shoe as my game piece. We have been collecting various property assets in hopes of getting a Monopoly, buying houses and hotels, and paying rent money to each other for about an hour. But in the end, I am the winning champion of Monopoly because San_San was on St. James Place and she rolled 7 on the dice and then landed on my red-colored property Indiana Avenue for the third time which she owed me $1,050 for rent with a hotel on the property but she declared bankruptcy because she didn’t have enough money to pay me after she sold her houses and mortgaged all of her properties.

Then I get to put the Monopoly game away as part of my great victory. It sure was fun playing that game. 🙂 Maybe next time we play Monopoly we should con my sister Tomala to join us.

Oh, and speaking of, here’s a picture of a ‘Player Bankrupt’ cutscene from Monopoly for the Game Boy Color but I replaced the Monopoly guy’s pants with a pink skirt and the Monopoly guy’s face with a female face with pink hair and ponytail to make it look like San_San’s face:

Credit goes to Nintendo and Parker Brothers for the ‘Player Bankrupt’ cutscene picture.

Yep, it sure was fun being a good thousandaire in this game. 🙂
