From the co-creator of Sierra's Quest For Glory games comes the original Castle of Dr. Brain from 1991 for DOS PCs! And you know it pretty quickly from the sheer quantity of puns on offer.

  • If memory serves you could bypass the copy protection with hint coins. The mechanism is programmed to jam after two coins to try and prevent this but you could use hint coins to get the first two codes, write them down, reload, then use a hint coin to get the third one.

  • I just noticed that the 5¼" floppy covers at 1:34 have the Game Arts logo on them. I know that Sierra did distribution for Thexder, Silpheed, and Firehawk on MS-DOS and Tandy in the US, but I didn't know they were actually considered part of the Sierra brand at the time.

  • Oh Man, that takes me back. I loved Castle of Dr. Brain, mostly a really good game (a few annoying bits, but overall very good). Island of Dr. Brain was all right, but not nearly as good. And the Lost Mind of Dr. Brain was ... really terrible, having all of 5 "puzzles" (minigames) you had to repeat over and over.

  • Hey clint. I'd like to play this game with windows 98 se in vmware. I have installed the sound drivers and they work for windows, but not for the game. It says: Unable to initialize your audio hardware. It has been too many years to remember how to configure the sound card for dos. Can you give me some advise? The driver for windows is SB PCI(WDM). I tried putting SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 H5 P330 T6 to autoexec.bat, but that didn't work.

  • I remember being so excited for the next installment in the Dr. Brain series when they teased it. I don’t think we ever got it, though. We did later get copies of The Secret Island of Dr. Quandry, and the Lost Mind of Dr. Brain, which I loved.

  • Ah, that MediaVision logo. I remember it well, given the 486 we got in 1993 had a Pro Audio Spectrum 16 and a 2x CD-ROM drive with a software bundle... I got rid of a lot of old computer parts around 2000 ish In hindsight I wish I had kept that sound card. It's really well regarded and kinda pricey these days. (AFAIK Pro Audio Spectrum 16 was of course a sound blaster clone, but it was regarded as having exceptionally high quality PCM sound recording and playback. The OPL-3 FM chip might have been identical to a SB-16, but the rest of the chipset really wasn't.)

  • 12:18 I don't think he's entering there, I think those are screens hanging on the ceiling in the middle of the room, but with the player's perspective being close to them, so he's actually just walking in the room and it looks like he's going behind them from that point of view, but they mistakingly had his sprite walk over the red and purple screens on the left rather than behind them.

  • I know this is a long shot but ive been googling trying to find this old pc game for years. From what I remember you inherit a mansion or something like that and when you go inside some tribal/voodoo masks task you with solving puzzles but they are all musical in nature. It was maybe a point and click or an adventure im not sure anymore. I remember it had old school DRM with something in the booklet you had to type in when you started the game. The cover was red if I remember right. PLEASE HELP ME BROTHA!

  • Wow. These elevator mazes are easy. How? PRESS THE RED BUTTON for godsake xD! You switch the map on the left from the horrible isometric view to a 2d topdown map that does make sense and that shows any corner of the maze you have found so far. Just don't look at the right side, only the map on your left. Try it! Man, back in the day my mom was too cheap to buy us anything nice (1999/2002) we had this on my brothers 286. Played this inside out on the weekdays. Over at dads we did have pentiums and internet, don't worry. But this is how I kept playing Dosgames. Check out my youtube channel for a complete playthrough might you be interested. And yes... This Dr. Brain game was really educational and thought me a lot about binary, planets, programming and the language English (like the names for sports and parlor games) which isn't my native.
