Description of Savage

Savage is a little-known gem from much better known software developer, Probe Entertainment (and was even programmed by Brian O'Shaughnessy, who also worked on Mortal Kombat).

In Savage, you play the role of a medieval barbarian, interestingly enough named Savage, who broke free from a castle in which he was imprisoned just to find out that he was tricked into the castle just to allow the capture of his maiden girlfriend. As Savage, you must progress through three fundamentally different action subgames in order to save the maiden. Savage is a technical wonder.

Featuring tweaked PC-speaker music and sound, amazingly well-programmed EGA action sequences (including two side-scrolling levels with many sprites and even a 3D-view plane with depth-scaled sprites), Savage thrills me even today with its excellent graphics and great music. It is a classic how few people know, and I'm glad I kept the disk and can play it today as well. Get it. Now.

You'll need to change 'cputype' from 'auto' to '386_prefetch' for Savage to run.

I confirm this games does not work in Dosbox 0.74b. There are five executables, only savaget.exe produces the game credits (which I remember for having owned the game at that time). I tried to fetch another version from somewhere else but only this one seems available on the web. Too bad.
