    Default Help finding a DOS game. Prison related

    I need your help to identify a game that I used to have in my old DOS computer.

    The only things I remember:

    - the game started in a prison cell and then you could get out and walk trough the prison

    - i think that the game as in pink&black colors or something like that, not in full color

    - i believe it was an adventure game, not action

    - i remember loosing energy when breaking doors

    Wild guess, but is it Abuse? You start off in a prison, and the game uses a dark palette rather than full color, but it's an action game (I don't remember about the breaking doors part).

    nop, the game had more detailed graphics than Wolfenstein and was more adventure/exploration based.

    Probably not even close but your description kinda reminded me of Crusader: No Remorse.

    Uninvited, maybe? That had a pink-and-green CGA port.

    This almost HAS to be Eden Blues. If it's not this game then I have no idea what it could be...

    Here is a link to mobygames and below are some pics I stole from there.



    If a god is willing to prevent evil, but not able, then he is not omnipotent. If he is able, but not willing, then he must be malevolent. If he is both willing and able, then why is there evil? If he is neither able or willing then why call him a god?

    Thanks. When I was younger my older brother was really into PC games. He was always picking up new games and downloading the latest stuff off the BBS. Lots of good memories sitting next to him, watching as he played through tons of different titles.

    Honestly if the OP had not mentioned "loosing energy when breaking doors", I don't think I would have had a clue. But it was that odd game mechanic that stuck with me.
    If a god is willing to prevent evil, but not able, then he is not omnipotent. If he is able, but not willing, then he must be malevolent. If he is both willing and able, then why is there evil? If he is neither able or willing then why call him a god?
