5 Great Apogee Games on Impulse.

The name Apogeeor 3D Realmsis synonymous with Duke Nukem Forever and thus is also known as troubled. The publisher/developer has quite a few great games under its belt and also that one biting wound of Duke Nukem Forever. Nevertheless, I remember Apogee vividly for it was their games that I played first when the first home computer was bought in our house. Duke Nukem, Wolfenstein 3D, Bio Menace, Commander Keen ah, those were the days. Now Impulse is selling 5 great Apogee games for $5.99 apiece. Yes, Rise of the Triad, Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold and Planet Strike, and of course Duke Nukem 3D and Duke Nukem: Manhatten Project can be yours at that great price! Also, the blurbs on Impulse are so yesteryear that in today’s context they sound very funny!


Here is a glance at the awesome games of yesteryear!


Rise of the Triad: As part of the High-risk United Nations Taskforce (HUNT) you must stop this maniac evil cult leader from killing millions of people. In this game, you can look both up and down, up to 45 degrees, to see what is above and below!! Wow! Yes, sir, this is 20 Megabytes of explosive graphics, animations, music and digitized sounds!that you can play with your friends over IPX!!


Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold: With a title like that I am expecting nothing more but sheer awesomeness from this title. As Dr. Pyrus Goldfire’s main enemy, Blake Stone must find a way to stop his maniacal plan of… doing stuff. With Adlib & Sound Blaster support (FM and digitized sound effects, IN STEREO!)and diminishing lighting effectsthis game is an audio-visual extravaganza!


Blake Stone: Planet Strike: It’s the 22nd century. British military agent Blake Stone is called again to save humanity from some other perilous peril. With a Real-time Automap, I can only dream of how great this game would have been when it was released!


Duke Nukem 3D: C’mon, do you really need a descriptive paragraph on Duke Nukem? Where were you all these years?


Duke Nukem Manhatten Project: Total Mutant Mayhem? Oh yeah, totally! Insane action and a rich 3D world to fight in, this game was pretty close to awesome when it was released. Buy it now!

So, which games did you buy in the Impulse Apogee catalog?
