Old school PC gamers, what were you favourite less well known DOS/Win3x games?

For me:

DOS:
Crystal Caves
Descent
Dune
Jill of the Jungle
Loom
One Must Fall 2097
Terminal Velocity
Zone 66

Win3x:

The Incredible Machine
Comix Zone
Fury 3D

I have a major blank when it comes to this period it feels like I jumped from Amiga to Win95/Consoles. But I remember playing Descent, Blood (Multiplayer) that was a blast.

Ecstatica was a great horror game where the characters were made out of ovals. Ultima Underworld.

Hexen (and even more Hexen II) was a blast multiplayer

Descent taught me the blessings of a mouse over HOTAS for certain games

Like FE, I was an Amiga guy for most of the DOS era, especially for games. Most of my DOS gaming was the big-name stuff. DOOM and DOOM2, X-Wing and TIE Fighter, Descent, Duke 3D. The “niche-est” game I remember fondly from that era is probably Lemmings?

I think I had Descent, Civilization and Dune 2 on the Win3.1 machine my uncle left us when he went travelling. There was Dune as well, but I think it was some copy protection but I didn't know where the manual was. So not exactly less well known.

I never really figured out how to use the OS. Somehow I figured out how to exit to DOS and find the game folders to run the exe. I must have installed new games at some point because I remember fiddling with IRQs. It felt like by the time I actually understood them the OS handled it all.

Same here, I only got my first PC in 95-96 but prior to that it was all Amiga's and Commodores. The very first PC game I got was Mech Warrior 2.
