Decided to fire up Dune II on DOSBOX and was thoroughly enjoying myself until I started to get beat back by waves or ordos on Mission 5, and a sandworm ate both my harvesters while I was trying to individually select each unit of my army to move them up the map.
Amazing game with some slight flaws, like you can only select one unit at a time. Back in 1993 it didn't matter. It was original and to be honest, one of the best games I have ever played. But I was thinking, it's 2012... people have remade all kinds of games over the past 10 years. I wonder if they got round to Dune II yet...
And I found this port which seems relatively new. It keeps the game vanilla, baring some optional 'improvements' such as a better AI and harder (insatiable!) sandworms (NO THANKS!). It's easy to set up. Just unzip the program, add the original .pak files from a Dune II installation into the DATA folder and off you go. You can change/edit the games features by removing the 'sample' extension of the config file. It supports HD and .... You CAN select multiple units at once!
Anyways, download is here...
