About

The Apogee Throwback Pack is a collection of four classic Apogee Software titles all in one kick ass package. Blast your way across the galaxy as British Special Agent Blake Stone in "Aliens of Gold" and "Planet Strike", then take on an ancient evil menace as the H.U.N.T in "Rise of the Triad".Key Features:
Four classic games that offer hours and hours of nostalgia ridden gameplay. Full widescreen support for modern Windows and Mac operating systems. All wrapped up in one sleek package that allows for easy modding.

  • Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold
  • Blake Stone: Planet Strike
  • Rise of the Triad
  • Extreme Rise of the Triad

Many players wondered how Apogee would follow the success of Wolfenstein 3D in 1992. The answer was "Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold"! Where Wolf3D took you into the past; thrust into a world at war - Blake rockets you into the future where a sinister madman, Dr. Pyrus Goldfire, is using genetics to create an army of bizarre creatures and wage war on Earth.

In "Planet Strike", once again, British agent Blake Stone will find himself in a life or death struggle for the control of humanity's future. After a five year manhunt for the elusive Dr. Goldfire, the search has finally ended on Planet Selon at the abandoned STAR Institute Training Complex. If the reports are correct, then Dr. Goldfire is alive and has once again created a fiendish army of evil mutants. Blake is going to need all his wits, skill, and the best firepower money can buy to put an end to Goldfire's plans.

"Rise of the Triad" thrusts you into the world of an elite group of operatives called the HUNT (High-Risk United Nations Taskforce). Together you must stop a maniacal cult leader from killing millions of people.

While scouting a remote island, you are suddenly surrounded by enemy troops with guns blazing. In the distance you see your boat--your only chance to escape--explode into matchsticks. In front of you is a huge fortress monastery, and your only way out... is in. You're equipped with awesome, high-tech weaponry like heat-seeking missiles, split missiles, and the Flamewall cannon, which leaves a trail of charred skeletons in its wake. You'll also find magical instruments and weapons so incredible they defy description.

"Extreme Rise of the Triad" ups the ante with over 40 new levels as the HUNT returns to take on even more maniacal Triad madness. Not enough for you? There's even a RandROTT level randomizer so the ludicrous fun never ends! What are you waiting for?!

The Apogee Throwback Pack reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Spain
* There Are two games in this package that I explored for hours in its shareware version (was poor): Blake Stone and Rise of the Triad. The Apogee Throwback Pack includes these two games in addition to their extended versions or later chapters. If you ever played them and you have an impulse to nostalgia, this package is excellent. * Use DosBox But if you scratch a bit, you can find sourceports to modernize the situation (although both ports are half abandoned and sometimes complicate the situation more than improve it). * I Remember the feelings of strangeness that caused me both games after having devoted entire summers to Wolfenstein and Doom. What Both games had, unlike Wolf 3D and DOOM, was very good humor and a lot of risk. They Pushed the very limitations of their engines to reach to offer more complex labyrinths and vast worlds for the players of the genre. In Blake Stone We will find dialogues between the characters while in ROTT we'll see towards the heights. * It'S amazing to think that at the time, like there was a console war, there was a war to create a better engine for the FPSs. Whoever won the war at the time was DOOM, who favored action and speed. But these games, both are based on the Wolf 3d engine and it's fascinating what Apogee got when he continued to play with his own engine. * A note: ROTT lays the foundations of the ironic and irreverent humor of Duke Nukem (in addition to textures and more... "Real"). An example of this is God's way, which turns your avatar into a ten-foot-tall character and can explode enemies with energy spheres. The character, meanwhile, seems to saying goodbye prayers and hoot as if it were a divine apparition. Other Strange Powers of ROTT: You can become a dog or chew hallucinogenic mushrooms. * Blake Lively, on the other hand, has interesting moments reminiscent of interactive adventures because you can find some computers or talk to some characters and choose options. Blake Lively is a beautiful retro ride, but futuristic, but 16 bit, but in space. Maybe Fallout was based a little on this for your computers in the wilderness? We Can write this down into the fascinating development of the game inside the game. * Unfortunately as oldest old games that use DOSBox, they do not have support for the steam overlay, challenges and chrome. Basically This is a product for nostalgic people. And It's a shame because new generations might feel fearful of exploring these pieces of history. They Are Great games, with interesting mazes and devour proposals.
