Xavagus Prime Releases OIDS 2.0
9:05 AM | Tristram Perry | Comment on this story

Xavagus Prime Software has released a classic shareware video game that was originally released in the early '90s and is now available for download as OIDS 2.0.

OIDS is a fast-paced arcade-style game, combining aspects of old-school games like Choplifter, Asteroids, Defender, Lode Runner, and Lunar Lander. According to the Xavagus Prime web site, your mission is:

Rescue the OIDS from the Fiendish Biocretes who are turning them into vending machines and household appliances! Fuel your ship, charge your shields, and blast off to adventure as you challenge planetoid after planetoid of devious gravity traps, treacherous teleport puzzles, and wave after wave of Hell Jets, Heat-Seekers, and Burst Orbs!
OIDS 2.0 requires a Power Macintosh running System 7.5.3 through Mac OS 9. OIDS runs in the Classic environment under Mac OS X, but it is noted that game performance is not as good not as under Mac OS 9 or earlier. OIDS 2.0 also includes a game editor with which you can create your own games with easy-to-use cut and paste functions.
