Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

The story of the game closely follows Robot City, a series of novels inspired by Isaac Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics.

In the vein of Myst and other graphic adventure games from the time, Robot City features a first-person perspective. The player must click to move around Robot City and interact with the 3-D environment. A conversation system allows the reader to pick between a number of topics to talk about, and the player's choices can have significant in-game consequences. The game has multiple endings which also depend on the player's actions.

Thank you for this! I've been wanting to play this again but have no idea where my discs have gone. Now the problem is solved!

Thanks Thu, I will test this to the extent that I can. Someone who has Basilisk II or SheepShaver should give it a try and report their findings, too.

UPDATE: Since finding this little program-- http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/virtual-dvd-romcd-utility I don't even bother trying to run software from DiscCopy images anymore. I converted the DC images to Toast images and mounted them on the desktop of my G3 PowerBook (Pismo) under OS 9.2.2, and Robot City seems to run fine that way, though I haven't played very far into it.

Just a little warning. I could only test this on a G4 in OS 9. The intro movie worked fine. Once I chose a new game though, it started to constantly swap discs. It was so bad, I could not go any further.

It also doesn't seem to recognize the images mounted on the desktop.

Hopefully it will work better for everyone else.
