Tomb Raider  1996

One of the first 3D shooters to feature a female hero, Tomb Raider is popular for more than just the beautiful Lara Croft. Far from being a mindless First Person Shooter, Tomb Raider requires exploration and technique. Tomb Raider has auto-aiming, sophisticated lighting, and features exceptional level design. Lara Croft can leap across a gap and grab onto a ledge, or "safety drop" to get to the bottom of a drop that would otherwise kill her. There was a pre-release demo version that included the first half of the City of Vilcabamba, and a post-release demo in PC Zone magazine that included the second half of the same level, making it possible to play an entire level before buying. A special demo for the Glide API smooths out the textures and significantly improves the game's appearance. There are 15 levels in this game, with only the two halves of the second level playable in each of the shareware versions.
