Video review on Ancient DOS Games
Captain Comic was one of the first DOS platformers to gain popularity. The backgrounds are unusually detailed for EGA graphics, and the game is noted for being extremely large. Playing the galactic hero, Captain Comic, your mission is to recover three treasures from the planet Omsoc, which have been stolen by an alien race known as Tambians, and taken back to their planet. Your character can have up to five shots on the screen at a time, though he has a shot meter that can be used up, and recharges when he isn't shooting.
