Laser Squad is a turn-based tactical squad-based sort of thing. Made by the same developer as X-Com, it shares much with that game. You control a squad of soldiers and equip them with weapons and play one of five scenarios against an AI squad.

I've heard about this game many times, but never played it until now. It has my great affection if only because it inspired a game I played almost more than any other.

This was a request by Trusteft, made on my 64 subscriber special request video.

I had some problems recording this using DOSbox. The recording replayed at normal speed even though I was playing it with some slowdown. I played for about 10 minutes longer than the video came out at. So I had to do some heavy editing to keep my commentary in sync with the video, and didn't always succeed. That's also why I don't shut up for a moment in the video :)

"Overlooked Oldies" is a series of let's play videos of retro games that I somehow never played back in the day. Many of them will be suggestions made by subscribers, particularly on binary milestone request videos.

Intro music is from the classic "cracktro" by SCoopex. The full version can be heard and seen here:
