Raptor: Call of the Shadows 2010 Edition

GOG.com now offers Raptor: Call of the Shadows 2010 Edition, an update of the 2D vertical shooter. Word is: "Some of you may remember it as the bonus shareware game you got with your old, boxed copy of Duke Nukem 3D, ages ago. You may also remember the fast-paced action, pulse-pounding music and having an aching trigger-finger after you finally let yourself take a break from blowing pretty much everything that wasn't your high-tech, customizable fighter. Aside from being one of the best games of its kind, Raptor is also the perfect way to unwind, let your brain take a break and your instincts take over."

Done and done. I played so many hours of Raptor back in the day.

I think this new 2010 edition only adds filters like super eagle over the normal version. also available on dotemu's download site and gamersgate (more expensive) since last week. the old version of raptor has been available as a buy download from mking studios site since forever and also from 3d realms. all of these offer the same kind of deal as far as drm is concerned and about the same price, so not a very necessary addition to gog's library.

sucks that they're only doing one game a week now. but I guess they've finally pretty much run out of releases. which is weird since the publishers they're already partnered with have got a ton more great old games in their backcatalogues

Nice typo/omission:

"...take a break from blowing [up/away] pretty much everything that wasn't your high-tech, customizable fighter."

Cue the obvious jokes.

Although Raptor was nice, I always preferred the much more fluid Tyrian.
