Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

In the far future humanity has achieved faster-than-light space travel, but the galaxy is still a big unknown place. To chart the stars and planets explorers named "Robinsons" are sent on scouting tours of duty. Most of the time the Robinsons sent away are individuals deemed dangerous to society and whose ships are sabotaged. You play one of these Robinsons who gets stranded on a mysterious alien planet on which a telepathic woman is also stranded. As it turns out she knows a way to get off the planet, but she needs your help to escape.

Gameplay consists of first person roleplaying with the emphasis placed on character modelling and survival. Take a dip when it's cold and you'll sure catch the flu, don't treat an infected injury and amputation is on the way, etc. You must fashion your own tools from whatever you can find on the planet and the game uses pre-rendered sprites over voxel technology terrain for graphics (MobyGames).

Toast image, compressed with StuffIt 5.5

Do not complain if the image will not mount in OS X. It mounts just fine with Toast 5 on a Mac running OS 9.

The installer only installs the contents of the ROBINSON CD folder. You need to copy the contents of the ROBINSON folder into the ROBINSON CD folder (or vice versa) for the game to run.

When I create CD images like such one, I noticed this issue as well. Smile

I did not know this one even existed until I found it.
