Even with different conflicts, new machines of war, and varying technologies, the challenge for gamers remains the same – win against all odds. Today on GOG.COM, we welcome 7 retro war games that have been brought back from the past under the logo of video game publisher, Retroism.

Gunship!

This is the third part of the award-winning simulation game series created by MicroProse. In Gunship!, you become an assault helicopter pilot during the fictional conflict between Russian forces and the NATO army. Gunship! combines action and realism, while also providing players with micromanagement options in the form of customizing your gunship to fit your style of play.

Fleet Defender: The F-14 Tomcat Simulation

As the game’s developers stated in 1994, this title was the first flight simulator to accurately recreate carrier-based operations. Fleet Defender: The F-14 Tomcat Simulation gives you the chance to hop in the cockpit of the screaming sonic-speed fighter aircraft. Experience the excitement of a catapult launch from the carrier, dynamic air-to-air combat, and the challenge of landing on a pitching deck at sea.

F-19 Stealth Fighter

A simulator for all retro-gaming lovers, F-19 Stealth Fighter was in many ways ahead of its time. For example, during missions, the perspective of the camera could change depending on your assigned character. Moreover, the game showers you with over a hundred missions set across the globe – from the deserts of Libya to the arctic North Cape.

It can be tough deciding what game to play. Especially when so many of us have limited time at hand. A silver lining about spending more time at home right now is getting the chance to try out some games you may have pushed to the side.

These could be good games that didn’t quite get your attention or games that may not have had critical success, thus never reaching your radar. Daikatana is one of the latter and as it celebrates its 20th anniversary we thought it would be fun to look back at this infamous first-person shooter that was met with very mixed results when it released all those years ago.

Time-traveling through the past, present, and future

Daikatana is a first-person shooter that takes place across four different time periods. You’ll find yourself in 2455 Japan, ancient Greece, Norway during the Dark Ages, and San Francisco in 2030.

Built on the Quake II engine, you’ll explore each of these time periods with two computer-controlled sidekicks as you shoot your way through each unique-looking world. One twist presented in Daikatana is based on those two sidekicks. You see, if they die during a mission, you fail and have to start over.

In theory, this is a fun mechanic, but Daikatana does suffer from artificial intelligence that is sometimes lacking in the intelligence factor. For both your teammates and enemy AI. This makes each encounter a roll of the dice, which if you don’t take it too seriously can lead to some ridiculous fights. Sometimes good, sometimes bad.

While there are issues with the system, creator John Romero was absolutely onto something with the team-based shooter, as many games since then have used similar systems that have been widely acknowledged as a unique, fun mechanic.

There are plenty of weapons to try …read more
