Planet X3 The 8-Bit Guy 2019

This is the long-awaited sequel to Planet X2 in a series of games made for ancient computers. X1 was for the VIC-20, and X2 was for the Commodore 64. However, X3 is designed for MS-DOS compatible computers and is offered on floppy disks and digital downloads. And what’s cool is it will run on the oldest and slowest of MS-DOS computers. In-game music was composed specifically for the Tandy 3-Voice, and then converted for use with PC speaker and Ad Lib. It's a base-building RTS game, designed around a keyboard-only UI and featuring direct unit control. It has Starcraft-styled missile silos that you can flatten enemy bases with, once you’ve scouted their territory out well enough to know the exact X and Y coordinates on the map to shoot at. It’s perhaps a bit limiting by modern standards, but this is a game designed to fit into a tiny RAM-space and run on 286-era hardware, playable direct-from-floppy.
