Isometric Games

Postby ZOMB13 » Fri May 19, 2017 12:35 pm

Hi Guys/Gals,

I have a fondness of older isometric games and I am chasing some game recommendations. I'm looking for a particular type of game. It must be isometric (doesn't have to be true isometric), sprite based (no 3D games), and a windows game.

It doesn't have to fit into a particular genre as I enjoy all types of games (RPG,RTS, etc). Some examples include: Fallout, Age of Empires, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Diablo, Zoo Tycoon, SimCity 2000. Feel free to recommend any and all games that meet the above criteria. Thanks in advance.

One of my favourite isometric games from the 16bit era (while not a Windows game, you can easily emulate it) is Equinox.

Aside from that one, I'll always have a fondness for the isometric games Ultimate Play The Game (later to become Rare) released for the ZX Spectrum (Knightlore, Alien 8, Knightshade, etc) and the Bat-Man game released by Ocean.

Planescape: Torment. There's a recent Enhanced Edition. It's an RPG where you are an undead, might fit with your avatar ^_^

That's a nostalgic list for me (although it's TLL - Tornado Low Level, not TTL).
I'd also add Glider Rider and Quazatron to that Speccy list ;)

I used to love "The Immortal" on the Amiga, I believe it was ported to the Sega Genesis and DOS too. Lots of gore for the time.

Project Zomboid is a pretty lovely Isometric Zombie-Survival game by Indie Stone. I had a blast playing when I did, even has multiplayer and the devs are constantly updating with new features, plenty of mods and active forum last I checked. Great game if you're into isometrics.
