Game:Bob the Hamster VGA

Jump to navigation Jump to search

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.
