File additions, updates & replacements

Post by MrFlibble »

This is a thread for any file replacements that may be necessary. Personally I believe that it's always better to have the most recent version of a game if available. Additionally, for some games a free release is available as opposed to the shareware version.

Freeware repacements

Alien Cabal
Current version: Shareware
Replacement: Full release
Comment: The free full version was available for some time from the official website (Wayback Machine link). In the recent years the author and owner of the game, Greg Taylor, has been contacting DOS/old game related websites and offering the full version as freeware.
Yes, that's me. Alien Cabal was a lot of fun to write and publish and I would like it to continue to live on as freeware. [source]
The file currently available from archive.org (link above) is the same as the one which was up for download from aliencabal.com in the early 2000s.

Kiloblaster
Current version: Shareware
Replacement: Full version
