I loved this game when I was in College. Not sure what years I played it. somewhere between 1988-1993. My roommate and I also played the Board Game of Battletech and im having alot of fun with the new computer version also called Battletech. My only complaint has always been that the Mechs are almost all Human shaped except the Locust which is the most Iconic of the Mechs and yet also one of the weakest.
Anyway... Love this game!
Great game I remember playing this when I was 12.
if you are unfamiliar with dos, after the verify runs and says no good just type btech and hit enter, then choose option 3 for the best "graphics". it WILL launch. I just played and finished it using the browser. at the star league, look up the map and passcode map as its almost impossible to just figure it out with trial and error. HAVE FUN!!!
type "BTECH" into the dos prompt and the game will start.
Make sure you select BTECH.exe from the second dropdown to actually play this game. That caught me out for several tries, running verify.exe
just wanted to post a little DOS info, for this game after it runs its check you can type btech this should launch the game
Played this as a kid and was hoping for a little nostalgia but it's not working. After loading $verify it says no good.
I played this game when I was 15-16 on my Amiga in 1991-1992. I liked it so much that I finished it twice, which is something I wasn't know for doing back then. I guess I just liked it that much.
Funny seeing that it came out in 1988, and the sequel Battletech The Crescent Hawk's Revenge came out in 1989. These were the years that the Amiga 500 and 1000 dominated over every other computer. The closest would have been the Atari ST which is what my best friend had back then. Yet the sequel never came out for the Amiga, which at the time when I found out about that in 1992 and it prevented me from playing it really bothered me. I guess they had a reason for it, but PCs didn't catch up to the Amiga until around 1991 or 1992.
At least here on My Abandonware, I get another chance to not only play this game, but to play the second game as well.
How do I play this game? How do I start it?
I loved this game for years and just thought about it the other day. Sorry steam and xbox, I have some catching up to do with an old friend.
