Video/ Computer games today certainly look nicer than their fore bearers of 25 years ago, but I find that they often lack something the simpler games provided...FUN.
"Full Metal Planet" was a 1990 computer version of the French science fiction board game "Full Métal Planète" from two years prior.
In this game of science fiction strip mining, players land on a planet and try and grab as much ore as possible and take off before the game is over. Each player has tanks, boats, barges, mining equipment and a base ship at his disposal and will have to contend with the weather and the other miners.
The game was written for DOS, although it might have been ported from some other system. This fine bit of gameware will not run under Windows, not even with DosBox. I miss it.
