Is it legal and freeware?

Yes it is legal.
They always contact the publisher/author and ask permission to put the game on the site.

Uh... Airborne Ranger, brother Bodie could also vouch for our addiction to that game, especially when it was on the C64.

I like 3D Pool too although I am still trying to get Archer's Pool and Jimmy White's snooker to work on WinUAE.

I can still remember how impressed I was when I first saw these solid 3D games on the Amiga / ST, back in the late eighties. Even more impressive is that some of these games also ran on 8-bit systems like the Spectrum and BBC Micro!

If I remember, 3D games around this era was,
3D Pool,
Carrier Command,
Driller,
(some other Freescape game),
Stunt Car Racer,
Sentinel,
F-16 Falcon?
Hard Drivin

@Bodie_CI5

Aye, Airborne Ranger (on the C64) for me is probably the best game that I have ever played. It just oozed class and playability

bloodnet is orginally installable but not very cpu and extra hw friendly, ie like on my 060 it was unplayable untill the whd came..

anyway airborne ranger ROXX on the c64 but super suxx on the miggy , though the case the game comes in on amiga is just as nice as on the c64

Bloodnet is a great game, though it's abit of a shame it's not the much more enhanced AGA version.

That would be Dark Side, which was better than Driller I think.

There were also:
* Castle Master - Total Eclypse (These used Freescape)
* Star Glider II (Maybe this was earlier, I do not recall)
* Elite
* Virus
* Interceptor (That was surely earlier, but I really drooled the first time I sow it!)
* There was also an RPG that was 3D with zooming sprites and some texture mapping. It was settled on a cubic world and in the very first levels there were some FishMen beings.
* Archipelagos (Man, true and pure gameplay!)
* Some Sci-Fi 3D first person adventure from Psygnosis. I can't remember the name.

No, Hired Guns was indeed a marvellous game, but it had Dungeon Master Like 90° Step by Stem movements. The one I was talking about was more like Castle Master, so with 3D graphics and was released before Hired Guns.
Damn, my memory is not the same as some year ago...

Thanx salass00!

Nice site however!
Too bad that some of these games never had been released!

Odd Hired Guns is also marked as non installable. But it was.

Indeed it was.

Anybody knows if some of these site that allow to download old games with the permission of the producer managed to convince Psygnosis to let some of their titles become public domain?
