Title:M.R.T.Genre:Action
Developer:Brian HoganYear:1996
Description:M.R.T. or Mini Robotic Tanks is an average, top down shooting game with robots. You have an option to fight against a computer or a human opponent with the goal to destroy the opponent or his structures present in the level (static screen; no scrolling). Since the computer AI is terrible, M.R.T. mostly comes down to being a two players game. The designer did put some effort to create an interesting gameplay by adding powerups and obstacles in the levels. Also, the graphics are nice. How much the gameplay works, I can't tell. The robots can move only in horizontal or vertical direction and the movement is tile by tile based, which doesn't leave much space for using tactics. Not really an exciting game. Just don't expect much if you decide to download this game.

Title:MADMIX GAMEGenre:Action
Developer:Enrique HuertaYear:2000
Description:An average pacman game featuring scrolling, EGA graphics and cool gameplay with several unique features not so common in pacman games. Overall, a very nicely designed game. No sound effects or music. The package includes a level editor.

Title:Man Who Had A Boat, TheGenre:Action
Developer:KENTAURI (Lachie Dazdarian)Year:2003
Description:Another game made for the one key challenge where you had to create a game controlled with one key. Nice graphics, but only 3 short levels and shallow gameplay. If you are looking for a quick and short game, you might want to check this.

Title:Mario 2Genre:Platform
Developer:Mastersoft (Gilberto Lima)Year:1998
Description:A rather boring and repetitive Super Mario clone, but well coded. No enemies, just endless jumping. You will probaly need a slowdown utility to play this game. Nice graphics, but themeless and incoherent.

Title:Mario UpgradeGenre:Platform
Developer:Mastersoft (Gilberto Lima)Year:1999
Description:This seems to be a better version of Mario 2, but this one is in Portuguese. Not a serious obstacle for playing the game. I've actually finished Mario Upgrade and not Mario 2 so I don't know how much Mario 2 is inferior to Mario Upgrade. There are some differences in graphics and level design. Both games don't feature any music or sound effects. You will probaly need a slowdown utility to play this game too.

Title:Mars Fighter 2069 ver.1.0 Genre:Action
Developer:OuterZones EntertainmentYear:2001
Description:A top down space shooter (like Raptor) in hi-res (640*480) graphics. At the first glance it seems like something very cool, but it really isn't. Except for the main ship sprite, the sprites are very poor. Also, they don't feature a transparent background color which makes the game look unprofessional. Mars Fighter's gameplay is very poor. There is no any challenge value in the game what so ever. The levels all look the same (in space) and the only difference between them are larger and slightly tougher groups of enemy ships. It all seems like something packed in a hurry. The main menu, the story screen and the in-game status icons look very cool.

Title:Martian VentureGenre:Platform
Developer:JoakimYear:2002
Description:A cool and smooth platform game, but with a small amount of different graphics, from tiles to sprites. The very graphics are good, but the game lacks diversity. The game engine is excellent. Martian Venture features Sound Blaster sound effects. No music.

Title:Master KidGenre:Platform
Developer:Thunder SoftwareYear:2001
Description:A very good platform game with very good graphics (more or less). Master Kid also features below average Sound Blaster music and some minimal sound effects. The design is not the best nor the technical perfection, thus the score 6 for a game that seems better on the first sight. 15 levels placed in different worlds, although some of the graphics repeat. The game options and menus are on French, but you should manage without knowing French.

Title:MasteroidsGenre:Action
Developer:Kevin B. KohlerYear:1998
Description:A mediocre space shooter without scrolling (static screen), like Asteroids. You control a ship with a goal to destroy all the asteroids inside the level. The biggest flaw of this game are the graphics. Asteroids are simple circles and your ship is a rotating triangle. Nevertheless, the game is executed quite well. Ship rotation is perfect, the controls are very good, powerups cool and the gameplay works. Masteroids lacks more content and better presentation. 640*480 graphic resolution. MIDI background music.

Description:Multiplayer (without single player mode) space ship shooting game. You fight against one to three opponent ships with a goal to destroy them and accumulate more kills. The graphics are rather simple and the game physic/controls are not so good. I don't know how much this game is fun to play since I was not able to play it with another person.

Title:Mega Hacker!Genre:Puzzle
Developer:Julian YapYear:1997
Description:Nothing but a pure text, number guessing game disguised as a game about hacking. Despite the designers effort to create a plausible game about hacking, Mega Hacker! simply doesn't work. It's boring like any other number guessing game. In Mega Hacker! you can "hack" your school, an underground BBS, a bank and FBI headquarters. But to be able to hack anything but the school, you'll need to hack the school (guess a number between 1 and 100) 10 or more times. To hack the bank and FBI headquarters even more. Terrible gameplay.

Title:Metal QbGenre:Action
Developer:Stars DevYear:2002
Description:An action shooter similar to Chaos Engine (top down view). Sadly, Metal QB is a rather poor game. You run around mostly shooting at rats (?!) which is plain dumb and boring. There is only one type of human enemies. The graphics are poorly designed. Very poor level design. The game does feature some cool things, like the player's ability to strafe.

Title:MineFindGenre:Puzzle

Description:A Minesweeper clone. It features very dull graphic. The interesting thing is that you can alter the size of the game field and the number of mines (difficulty). Too bad the designer wasn't interested to create more appealing graphics. Keyboard controlled game which is not common for Minesweeper games and for a reason.

Title:Mini RPG 2Genre:RPG
Developer:JAWS V soft.Year:1999
Description:Interesting RPG that embodies the word "mini" in everything. The characters are small looking, the game world is small and battle options are minimal. The graphics are made in EGA style, but they are excellent and the characters are very well animated. Despite its "mini" concept this is a rather addictive game. The only problem I see with the game is that the battles are too slow-paced and the game is too straight-forward. PC Speaker sound effects.

Description:A game with the identical concept and design as in Mini RPG 2, but this sequel features even better character animation (it's great) and a bit more interesting (and amusing) story. Sadly, the game world is very small again. Like in Mini RPG 2, this game is all about fighting battles and leveling up.

Title:Mini Space EmpiresGenre:Strategy
Developer:Murat ElicYear:2003
Description:An average strategy game in space. Build structures on your planet, build ships, colonize new planets and invade enemy planets. The graphical design is very nice. Too bad the game can't be played against human opponents. Also, the game could use menus and documentation. Like this, it looks half done. The gameplay is ok. There is no progress, but for each new game planet positions are randomized.

Title:MiniRPG1 BoardgameGenre:RPG
Developer:JAWS V soft.Year:2000
Description:A RPG played on a hexagonal map. By using roulette (spinning arrow) the characters move and attack enemies. The battle system is a bit more complex and interesting than in Mini RPG 2&3. The graphics are absolutely excellent while the gameplay is another thing. In this game you compete against 3 other computer controlled characters in a race to capture Kingís pet dragon Saurdox. What is annoying is that you have to watch opponents move and fight while the battles are annoyingly slow-paced like in other Mini RPG games. You can speed up the game, but then you lose the atmosphere and don't experience the wonderful animations properly. Definitely worth being checked because of the excellent graphics and animations. The game doesn't feature any sound effects or music.

Title:Mirkwood - Middle Earth Tale III.Genre:RPG
Developer:Jocke The BeastYear:2001
Description:A mediocre RPG. Average graphics. Tile by tile movement. Minimal animation. A big plus is the large amount of dialogues. The game world is not designed so well. For example, you get various objects from strangers, scattered around the forest dead ends, for no reason. Battles are textual.

The graphics are ok, but I find the style used a bit weird (bright edges). The game runs slightly too fast, but it's playable. Missing In Space features a nice side scrolling effect.

Title:Monkey Blast!Genre:Action
Developer:focus ZEROYear:2001
Description:A brilliant aim and shoot game. In Monkey Blast! you need to protect scattered bananas from the hordes of starving monkeys by killing them. The game is mouse controlled. The graphics are very nice, but not excellent. What is great are wonderful gore effects (blood and guts everywhere) and amusing Sound Blaster sound effects. After each level you can buy new weapons, grenades or threshers, which help you protect the bananas. Absolutely excellent gameplay. If you are looking for a game which is enjoyable, fun and relaxing to play, download Monkey Blast!

Title:Mono SpaceGenre:Action
Developer:Milo SedlacekYear:1997
Description:An excellent monochrome space shooter featuring some of the best explosion effects ever to appear in a QBasic game. The graphics, despite being monochrome, are excellent and the code is brilliant. This game is legendary in the QBasic circles as well as its tragically deceased designer. The problem with Mono Space it that it's too short, lacks proper design like menus and presentation, but because of its cult status deserves to be remembered and played.

Description:An excellent lunar lander simulator featuring the entire voyage from Earth to Moon and back. In MoonCrash youíll need to take off from Earth, reach the Moon, land on it with a lunar module and get back to Earth. Physics and the gameplay are excellent. The game is quite challenging, but not discouraging. The graphics are quite simple, but since the game is so well designed you won't miss anything. With each new game starting position and all the landing positions are randomized, so each new game is a new challenge.

Title:Mysterious SongGenre:RPG
Developer:DarkDreadYear:2000
Description:A very nice role playing game. It features very nice graphics and Sound Blaster music. I personally don't like how the tiles blend together in this game and I found the cities/castles too small. Mattress Warrior and In The Nocturne feature slightly better done tilesets. The game is ruined in part by unnecessary amount of leveling up and battles. It has content for around 1 hour of play time, but you'll need over 3 hours to finish the game. One could also complain on the fact that the characters in the game don't move and are always facing toward south. Still, this designer is a synonym for quality so you canít make a mistake by downloading this game. Just have in mind what you will get; flashy package, but repetitive gameplay.
