Dune is a thrilling tactical video game. In the role-playing game, the player plays the role of Paul Atreides. The game is an actual time strategy game in which the player can communicate and associate himself with the in-game aspects.
The plot of the game is set on a planet named Dune (also known as Arrakis) which is well known for the spices. The spices are the most precious things of the universe and a person can take command over the entire universe if he controls the spice. Also, spice allows people to travel from one place to another in the universe. The people of the planet are known as Fremen and are distributed amongst several tribes.
At the beginning of the game, the player needs to associate himself with people of the tribe so that he can establish cordial relationships with them in order to get help from them whenever needed. Also, the player can get the troops of the tribes to fight with him against the enemy. But every time, it is not easy to convince the tribes to shake hands with the player. Once, the player has convinced the troops to associate themselves with him, he needs to order them to position themselves around Dune. The motive of the player is to defeat the Harkonnen as he is also in search of the spice.
The game, Dune consists of several different levels and each level has its own complexity level. It is seen that the complexity level increases with subsequent levels. Furthermore, the player has his own strength and weaknesses. The game involves both, thrill and tactics. Also, the graphics are crisp and the sound part is done well.

Works perfectly on Win10. Unlike basic DosBox saving a game is actually possible! Thanks.

Review by acecairo

Great Strategy with light adventure elements.  The first half of the game involves you having conversations with characters and doing certain actions in order to advance the story while mining spice and searching for villages, while the second half of the game involves you building up an army to defeat the harkonens.  I was disappointed by the ending, I expected a cool cinamatic or artwork or something for my hardwork and was dissapointed to see the same character animations of paul that are throughout the game, lame.  Still over all a great game with wonderfull music.

10/5/2022 11:25:00 AM - Novatia The big dos game sell in a set of multiple disk. When you start a game you load it into memory so you could play some game without harddisk. I'm not sure about this game though.

4/22/2016 1:03:00 PM - What browser do you use ?, all seems to be in order on the site. Make sure you have ClickOnce plugin installed (not needed for IE) or try to use PlayNOW (.NET). Also please keep in mind, that you need to always use the PlayNOW button to run the game or you will get the error message. If you acces the web from work or restricted network, there can be also restrictions on your computer.

2/13/2013 11:38:00 PM - schnide I have the PC CD version of this sitting right here in front of me, but can't make it install or run in Windows 7 64-bit. If anyone wants to give me a hint, I can see about converting this to an ISO and uploading it somewhere. Dune's one of my all-time favourites. Contact me at schnide AT btinternet DOT com.
1/17/2013 11:29:00 PM - Mr Ian Here are some good tips: Use the prospector troop to carry equipment around to different areas. I love it when you take Chani to Harah's sietch too!
1/13/2013 1:45:00 AM - JetCAt How do you get the game in the emulator?
1/6/2013 8:09:00 AM - Zjef Maarten, there were 2 versions of the game. One was under 3 MB and only included music, no speaking voices. Then there was the full CD version (500-600MB) that did include speaking voices. This version is much harder to find. The version here is too small to contain the spoken text.
1/3/2013 1:18:00 AM - Maarten I have music but I don't have the sound of the voices. Can anyone help me with this ?
12/23/2012 9:15:00 AM - hačo o yeah
9/13/2012 12:21:00 PM - Yasin Hello, I don't know how to play the game....it is like iam in a loop. I hit "play now" and take me to download "EmulatorStarter" I run "EmulatorStarter" and it takes me back to game lists, I choose dune then i choose "play now" and it take me to download "EmulatorStarter" again I think Iam dumb or there is something wrong.
