Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold | Released December 5, 1993
Many players have wondered how Apogee would follow the success of Wolfenstein 3D. The answer is "Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold"! Wolf3D took you into the past; thrust into a world at war. Blake rockets you into the future where a sinister madman, using genetics to create an army of bizarre creatures, is waging war on Earth. Blake has more of everything! More action, more enemies, more levels, more firepower, more graphics, more animation, more pitfalls and many more features. Like built-in auto-mapping, so you never have to worry about getting lost in the game.
"Blake Stone...isn't simply Son of Wolfenstein...it's a wish list fulfilled, enhancing the Wolfenstein canon with many sensible tweaks and some new tricks that'll make your jaw drop." -- Electronic Entertainment
You're pitted against Dr. Pyrus Goldfire. He's found a way to replicate pure gold, which he's using to fund his maniacal plan. Goldfire has built six highly secure, futuristic locations where his creations are being hatched. It's up to you to penetrate his security and stop him at all costs.
Upon ordering you'll receive the Blake Stone manual, which includes a comic style illustrated story that leads you into the game. You'll also get the secret cheat code which gives full health, all the weapons, full ammo, and all the key cards (giving you access to every area in the game).
