Q-POP (Windows 3.1)
Q-POP is a rather obscure Spore-like game and only known in Germany, the English version isn't fully translated as it never got to be released.
You can control 1 of 6 alien species, a hotseat function for multiplayer is also available.
The game is divided in 3 main sections:
In the overworld you place down your creatures and occupy land as well as attack the other species.
In the "Eat or be Eaten" level you will have to walk around, eat plants and mate to produce offspring.
In the "Beasts and Mutations" status screen you can increase your skills according to how many evolution points you've gained.
It can only be played under Windows 3.1 if you choose the downloadable version at FRUNIT.
If you want more than 256 colors in Windows 3.1 to enjoy the full colour-scheme of the game, download and install this: ftp://ftp.cstula.ru/oldftp/DRV&BIOS/Video/s3/ … 64/w3117004.zip
Unzip the 3 archives, then either open the German or French archive and unzip them into the same folder and start the install. After it has finished, you can change the colour mode under "Windows-Setup":
(do not go higher then 32K or Windows will complain about not enough RAM and some icons will stay black)
A modernized Browser-Version can be played here:
Click the "DE"-button at the top right to change to a fully translated English version of the game.
Unfortunately, the CD Music cannot be used in the Browser version and neither in the downloadable DOS versions.
The Music was only available on the later CD version release.
The Midi-Music is compatible with AdLib/SB1.5 and Roland-Midi devices.
Magnetic Planet (Windows 3.1 & Windows 10)
Basically a re-skin of Q-POP but with robots. All the game mechanics are identical, so even without an english version you should be able to play it no problem if you choose to play it under Windows 3.1.
Choose the "MPLAN32.exe" file to start the game under Windows 10, there you will have additional options such as being able to choose "English" as language.
