I'm looking for a new game to play. It has to fit within the following boundaries:

-must be either a win2k game or older (no DOS please)
OR a Linux game suited for older computers
-must be free
-must not need DirectX... anything
-Must be in English(USA) or English(UK)

Other than that, it can be anything.

Populous: The Beginning was a pretty epic game. It was nothing like the first two Populous games which is definitely a good thing. The problem is that it's really hard to find. It took me years before I finally found it at Best Buy on one of those racks that are saved for old games that no one wants. I had played the demo at school, so I bought it instantly.

I'm not sure how to explain the gameplay, so I'll just post two videos. The first one is the opening movie:



The animation is a lot better in the opening than during gameplay, but all of the magic they show are spells that you can actually use. I like creating Volcanoes

The second video is of the first level:



It does summarize the gameplay, but it runs kind of fast. The person who did this definitely studied the level and knew exactly where to target his spells as he progressed. I usually take a lot longer for this level.

If you can find the game (maybe on ebay) it is definitely worth playing.

Mother 3. It's an RPG game where you and your enemy take turns attacking, but adds a faster pace to it because your health gauge slowly raises and drops so that you can have a lower health, so when you take mortal damage you still have 5 or 6 seconds to try and heal!

And the storyline is AWESOME!! so I don't want to give you any spoilers,

My friend got stuck on this one boss, so in order to make sure you don't get stuck, I'll tell you this now: The Wall Staples can be used to Immobilize your enemy for a few rounds.

Mother 3 is Japanese, but some fans Ganged together and made an English translation that's available here Vizzed, although I dunno where to find it anywhere else, and Yes! it is free!

I'm not sure how to call anyone, but I'll try here.
BNuge I did say it had to be free and not require DirectX, but I'll keep my eyes peeled if I get any money.
billythekidmonster I'll check out the site, but I have a question. Why are you on this forum if you didn't see the link to the RGR on the top left?
sonicandrew21 I'll try to find the English translated Rom, I knew about the game from a certain Emile on youtube. (is shot for advertising)
Thank you all for replying.
