Because the people who named it were from a very different culture from both Scandinavia and the mid east.

Beyond Oasis is mostly generic fantasy looking, but Legend of Oasis has a fair bit of arabian type flair.

Yeah, Beyond Oasis and Legend of Oasis are completely unrelated to Defenders of Oasis. Yes, it's fucking stupid, blame western game renaming.

Great art. This game should be played on DOS though, all the console ports I've seen are just icky. DOS PoP is beautiful and works like the original without the shitty frame rate.
I've seen people here recommend the console versions and ugh, why?

>> No.2589202


Even if they weren't good as DOS version they're still pretty solid, it's a rare case where most of the ports aren't atrocious


>> No.2589216

I had the DOS version as a child.
I think that people don't want the DOS version because they can't be fucked looking up the sixth word of the fourteenth line of the twelfth page of the manual or the eighth word of the first line of the twenty-fifth page of the manual and so on and so on and so on to progress through the game.

For all of you kiddies too young to know: back in the day, in order to help curtail piracy, games often asked you to input a specific word from the manual to progress to the next level (or every few levels). It sucked. Even the best version of Tetris, the DOS one with the circus backgrounds and the bombs and stuff that I can't remember what it's called, did that shit all the time. It might get annoying if you've never expected anything like it before.

Those things are hacked if you download the game from abandonia and probably other major sites.
But then again some people can't even handle typing a few letters into DOSBox so I'm assuming so much. It's pretty sad.

DOS arcade games aren't fun for me, because joystick calibration never works in dosbox for my gamepad. It's nothing special either, just a common as mud Logitech Dual Action. I just play Amiga ports instead, since UAE doesn't need any such calibration. Oftentimes the graphics and sound are better too, for most 80's and some early 90's games.

In Exile, you play as an assassin from Syria who kills the Shi'ite caliph, then time travels and kills other historical figures while on drugs. Its kind of like Zelda II with both top-down and side-scrolling areas.

Unfortunately, only the sequel has a release outside of Japan. The TG-16 CD is the best English version of Exile II.
