Strife

1-Click Install
Macintosh OSX

(Sierra 1996)

MY PROMISE
My games are genuine, install in one step, look, sound and play in Macintosh OSX like they did in the old days, or your money back. This is my unconditional guarantee for three years.

WHAT IS INCLUDED
This listing includes the original game CD. An on-screen printable manual is also included. The box is pictured for reference and is not included.

I will also provide a compatibility CD that will allow the game to run under OSX versions 10.6 and higher. This covers any Macintosh made since late 2009.

Verify your version: From the Apple menu (upper left of screen) select About This Mac.

INSTALLATION
One step: Insert my CD and the game will automatically work on your computer. Done. Yes, it's that simple.

Want to play? Click the icon. Want the game off your computer? Move the game to the trash. Zero hassle.

TECH SUPPORT
Rapid response technical support for three years is always an e-mail or phone call away.

In the extremely rare event I cannot get this title to work on your system I will take it back for a full refund. All I ask is minimal assistance from you during the troubleshooting process.

 

The Game
What makes Strife different from every other first person shooter of its time is it's mixture of a game where you shoot everything that moves, and a game where you actually have a role to play. Unlike games such as Doom you here have to think before you shoot. Such as in the start you can't just go around and gun every guy you see, friend or foe, it will almost every time set off the alarm.

The story tells that in medieval ages a comet struck the planet, really big comet. To make matters worse it brought with it a plague, a plague powerful enough to kill millions. And so it did. Not everyone died though, those who died were the lucky ones. Some of those who survived became human mutations, mutations that formed a grand council named The Order. By the side of The Order were it's patriots, having survived a plague that horrible many joined up to help The Order do what they wanted. And what The Order wanted, was domination. Not all of those who survived went to help The Order though, actually some saw through the plan of the order and became rebels. Not being especially armed the rebels had a tough task, but with powerful leaders, strong soldiers, and alot of hope they actually could have a shot at taking down the order and perhaps making some kind of a place for people to live in harmony, not under the ruling of mutants, and not being treated as servants. Thats where you get in. If you play your cards right you should gain your trust with the rebels, and by completing the tasks they give you, your powers will increase. If you're a lamer though, you have the ability to kill both friends and foes, so if you'd like to make things really farked for yourself you can go on a hunt for blood, the only bummer is that you will be killed, and it will happen fast.

For RPG fanatics I'm afraid you will not find a lot of rpg-like elements, but considering this is a game in first person, where you carry guns, it does not have a bad rpg element either. I suppose Strife was meant for gamers who like both genres, and if you do, then you should give this game a try.

Based on the Heretic engine this game has actually fairly decent 90s graphics. The levels are mostly well made, with buildings that look medieval, which is good. The friends and foes do look very similar, often just differentiated by color of the shirt etc. Your friends do look different than your enemies, but your friends all look the same, and so do each type of the enemy. One bad thing though, you will experience the texture caused headache syndrome a bit out on the game, as the halls get small and the textures look very much the same.

All the important characters will speak to you during the course of the game. You will see a large picture of him/her on your right side, and choices of what to say in the bottom. Unlike many other games the heroes sound like heroes, and the peasants sound like peasants. The weapons sound like weapons usually do in games, as it's probably a bit tough making sounds like for example a lightning-emitting crossbow would make.

Since this game uses the Heretic graphic engine it has also taken with it it's controls, so you can use keyboard + mouse, only keyboard, or joystick. All in all Strife is a good shoot em up romp.
