Search SHAMUS for PC

category: general [glöplog]
This is one of the first games I ever played. Somebody know if there exists a PC version of it? It is from 1982 and was one of the best games till that date.

Not ashamed but very very surprised. Searched for PC versions of SHAME US and found this. :D Nevertheless, the game was great and she also will be a nice person. ;)

I had a pc-version of Shamus, with mighty CGA-graphics. Haven't got it anymore though :/

According to Mobygames that CGA version is a PC booter so you would probably need a floppy drive to run that one (if if still runs on modern PCs that is) and that would also mean you can't use a slowdown utility if that is needed. There are probably tools to fix those problems, but just using an emulator seems to be a better (and more colorful ;-) solution.

it's downloadable here http://retrograde.trustno1.org/ibm.htm. It runs fine here in dosbox (just use the BOOT command on the shamus.img).
