Description of Day of the Viper
This fun action game puts you in command of Viper, a futuristic droid sent to capture a space army base back from GAR, a computer sentient gone berzerk (not unlike System Shock's Shodan).
Your task is to find floppy disks (!) scattered around the base and reboot the system. Along the way, fight many enemy robots and find new components to upgrade Viper's system. The interface is somewhat intuitive, but the blend of action and adventure elements is well-implemented.

I found this game crashes/freezes in the final building at level 3. This also happened years ago with a promotional copy in 1993. You have to remember to keep saving it on floor 3. It appears to be a bug in all versions. The crash occurs at different places each time you play it. I've now played it hundreds of times. Items appear at different places and in different rooms with every reload that has not been previously saved.

I played this game on a computer with no hard disk back in 1990. I did get to the last floor and was very close to completing when the game stopped and would not reload.
I loved the game, however I have never played another game since.
After getting that close who would?
