Perhaps it is a Mac game called Marathon?

Yeah Frodo, Simon the Sorcerer in his (in)famous 3D!  :-D



Another victim of the "3d rush" of late '90s!  :~(

Yeah, poor Simon was indeed a victim of the 3D craze of the '90s.   :sad:
The first 2 Simon games were amazing!  This 3rd one... not so much.   :undecided:


I can't think of another game right now, so anyone can take my turn.   :wink:

It's interesting that everyone jumped on the 3D bandwagon, even when it was clearly inferior at the time. No one seems to have kept making 2D games and pushing that boundary. It's only in the last few years that pixels have become saleable again.

But you've got to admit, a lot of games were approaching their third installment at that time, and calling your game TITLE 3D was just an opportunity you couldn't pass up.
Earthworm Jim 3D
Simon the Sorcerer 3D
Duke Nukem 3D
All third installments, all appended with 3D.

When movies went through their latest 3D phase, they just stated shoving 3D at the end of every movie, with no regard for whether it was the third movie or not. Which really annoyed me.  >:(

Ahhh, but what about 3D Lemmings?  That was the... 6th?  7th?  Lemmings game, but it still got the '3D' attached to the title.   :kiss:

But they called it "3D Lemmings" not "Lemmings 3D".
So that one is still ok in my book.  :-D

Whose turn is it anyway?

Drascula: The Vampire Strikes Back? (Yeah, I had to look up the full name since I've only played like 20 minutes of it).

Hehe, that's the one.  It's a fun game.   :smiley:

I should have known a VAMPIRE Wombat would guess a game about vampires.   :tongue:

Vampires has nothing to do with it. I simply played it some because of it being released open source. And it was an easy guess due to the protagonist.

Random game from my Steam library.

Arkham Knight. Given away by the art style but you can also see Wayne Tower, and references to Vicki Vale and Lex Corps in the signage.
