I've always preferred Raptor over Tyrian due to its gritty atmosphere and harsh sounding music, especially with a Soundblaster 16.

I remember being 5 years old installing this from 7 floppy disks. I was so happy when it finally came in the mail, I played it 3 days straight

Good VGA-graphics for a shareware game and this time but it's boring after a while because of missing variety.
Try Tyrian 2000 and Starguner instead.

Why this game put back again for selling but on earlier 2016 it's free to download as a full game not only this game including, age of empires, and so many games

way back in the 90's this game took my time and my sweet heart away from me.

I have Sound FX working with these settings: Sound Blaster, Port 220, IRQ 7, DMA 1, Eight channels. For Music, I'm using Sound Blaster, Port 220. Credit goes to MuffledMosquito, from this post: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=580550279

No sound FX? Can't seem to get this working.. doesn't matter what the card is set to. Funny thing is, I actually own this game. It came on 4 floppies when I was a kid, in the mail.

ADDICTIVE GAME! I was literally addicted to this game. I loaded my Raptor on DosBox last week and was kind of overwhelmed (it had saved my games). Cool. But how do I slow DosBox down a bit to deal with the fact that the 2 computers that I use are both Quad-cores (one an I-7), and it is much harder to deal with these waves of enemies coming down at the speed these computers are bringing them down. Way too fast, or I've gotten way too old (haha). I need to go research DosBox a bit and play with the settings... see if I can slow the emulation down a few notches. GREAT GAME FOR GETTING OFF STRESS!!!

Yeah! Raptor! A simple, but very addictive game! I remember that I spent much time playing it until the end, buying more weapons up to my favorite, the twin laser gun and then... Playing it again until the end, and again, and again, and again ... You see? ;)
That's the cool thing on it, after you played it until the end you can play further by beginning at the first part again, but this time with all your earned credits and bought weapon systems! You must think it will get boring after a time...
But miraculously it just doesn't... And I f***ing don't know why.! :D
