Indeed it is, is great game few people knows about it.

Its a guy who discover a cure for something and he's put in that asylum where the game begin. Your role is to discover whats going on and why you've put in there.

Here's the intro movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28WUf...eature=related

Haha, I didn't know that there were cheats for MM. I know that there have been some remakes and whatnot, but afaik, they were all quite bad, so I didn't play any of them.

A few more from my childhood:

Stunts:I spent hours on this one. It took me forever to figure out how to do the loop.



One Must Fall 2097: A future-based robot fighting game. I played the demo of this game all the time, and was pretty disappointed with the full version when I finally got it years later.

Heh, Stunts was awesome.
I remember recording races that had weird bugs (like my car colliding to a building and then floating to the sky while burning and stopping there).

Haha, yeah. Also, you could jump through the roofs of tunnels and drive through the barriers on inclined roads.

Well, the game it self is a bit freak with all those freak characters, but its excellent. But did you finish the game or you get bore with it?

I did finish it. At the end he just woke up didn't he? It's a great game, I didn't like that part in which you played that greek god or whatever though. That statue guy.

Yeah I remember being very excited when I found it in the Win95 CD, as free games were nonexistent for me back in the days without Internet.

I don't remember this game. Probably my Win95 didn't came up with this game.

@Assassin: Yes, that part I also dislike a bit. The overall is great but ofcourse they could make it better, specially the character movements. I already read a postmortem of the game and publisher make them change alot thins in the game at the last stage and also in few time. But is indeed great and I have the original.

This is also one of the games I made some tools for and I think of making a reimplementation of that engine after we release prequel.

You should try playing Hover alexfont. You can download it from microsoft here:
ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/deskapps/gam.../AAS/Hover.EXE

As far as I know, you don't need any extra files for compatibility. You should just be able to extract the files and play.

Digger! Although its not entirely forgotten, I suppose, since there is a remastered version available. Still, it is a very old game.
