This is an obscure one. Singe was an extension to the Daphne emulator, which emulated laserdisc arcade games such as Dragon's Lair and Space Ace (which will be my next upload). However, Singe is more of a "Simulator" than an emulator as none of the internal ROM files of the arcade machines are needed to play the game.
Unfortunately, the Singe website went down some time ago, making it rather difficult to acquire. The games themselves are relatively obscure. Hologram Time Traveler was the hardest one for me to find, seemingly existing only in one single torrent with two seeders that weren't seeding 24/7.
Regardless, here is the game list. All have been tested to work, and each game comes with a batch file to start the game. If the batch file naming system seems a bit inconsistent, that's because they all come from slightly different sources. Feel free to rename them.
These are all laserdisc-based FMV arcade shooting games. They are fairly simple: use the mouse to aim, left click to shoot.
Mad Dog McCree
Who Shot Johnny Rock?
Mad Dog II: The Last Gold
Crime Patrol 2: Drug Wars
The Last Bounty Hunter
Also included is "Mad Dog 2: Typing Edition", which is a conversion of Mad Dog 2 to a typing game a la Typing of the Dead.
Overall, these games are par for the course in terms of FMV games: lots of bad acting an EXTREME amount of camp, although these games are MUCH better than Plumbers Don't Wear ties.
The Action Max is also a FMV shooting game system, but this is a home console that uses VHS tapes. This is the entire library of the system. James Rolfe and Mike from Cinemassacre put together a video showcasing this system. They aren't super great games, but I think it's important that they are preserved.
.38 Ambush Alley
The Rescue of Pops Ghostly
The next two games are Ninja Hayate and Time Gal, which are two laserdisc arcade games and blantant Dragon's Lair ripoffs. If you aren't familiar with Dragon's Lair, it was essentially "Quick Time Events: The Video Game: 1983 edition". The American Laser Games could be described as being "Extremely 90's American", these two games are definitely "Extremely 90's Japanese". These games also have Sega CD ports, and for some insane reason Time Gal got a Amiga CD32 port released in March of
Also called just "Time Traveler", this game is also a Dragon's Lair-esque game, although it has it's own bit of novelty. It was originally released as an arcade game with a sort of "Holographic" display. Unfortunately, this means that it is impossible to faithfully recreate this game with just a standard monitor.
Regardless, I hope you have at least a small amount of fun playing these games. None of them have aged particularly well, but I still think they are worth preserving.
