Game:Bob the Hamster VGA
Although not an OHRRPGCE game, Bob the Hamster VGA shares a legacy with the OHRRPGCE. It used the same allmodex assembly routines, and was ported to FreeBasic using code from the OHR. The BAM music format was created for Bob the Hamster VGA.
Control Bob with the arrow keys on your keyboard. There is no mouse support.

Old DOS Version
The old dos version is still available at http://HamsterRepublic.com/dl/bobvga-dos.zip and you can get the old source code from subversion:
svn co -r 3 svn://gilgamesh.hamsterrepublic.com/hamster/bobvga bobvga-dos
If you are running the DOS version in DosBox 0.74 and it freezes with the error message "Exit to error: DMA segbound wrapping (read)" then you can try disabling the sound in DosBox's config file
Or use https://dosbox-x.com/ which does not suffer from the same bug
