From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Alcatraz is a shooter game created by 221B Software Developments and published by Infogrames. It was released for MS-DOS, Atari ST and Amiga in 1992, as a spiritual sequel to Infogrames' 1988 game Hostages.
   Alcatraz Island, once home to America's most undesirable criminals, lies empty and abandoned. Since its closure, it was used as a tourist destination. Now, it is used by the notorious criminal Miguel Tardiez to use as the centre of his distribution network for his drug and gun running and money laundering operations.
   Learning that Tardiez is on American soil, the US Navy SEALs dispatch their best operatives: Bird and Fist. Their mission: to covertly breach the disused prison, destroy the drug and weapons caches and apprehend Tardiez.
   Landing on the beach, they fight their way through Tardiez's highly trained henchmen, using the shadows and hiding behind walls until they can silently breach the various buildings of the prison to look for the various caches, which they burn or blow up with C4 explosive or just by shooting them. Eventually, they reach Tardiez's office as he is just making his escape by helicopter and manage to kill Tardiez before he can evade capture.
   The game takes place over a number of levels, which changes its perspective to adjust to the corresponding mission, i.e.: inside buildings to find drugs, money and weapon caches, the viewpoint adjusts to first person mode, whilst many levels adopt the familiar side-scrolling perspective in which the commandos may hide in shadows from the enemies. This also allows the player to change his weapons, which you pick up from the enemies you dispatch.

Platform:

This ver­sion of Alcatraz was de­sig­ned for per­so­nal com­pu­ters with o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem MS-DOS (Mi­cro­soft Disk O­pe­ra­ting Sys­tem), which was o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem de­ve­lo­ped by Mi­cro­soft in 1981. It was the most wi­de­ly-used o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem in the first half of the 1990s. MS-DOS was sup­plied with most of the IBM com­pu­ters that pur­cha­sed a li­cen­se from Mi­cro­soft. Af­ter 1995, it was pu­s­hed out by a gra­phi­cal­ly mo­re ad­van­ced sys­tem - Win­dows and its de­ve­lop­ment was ce­a­sed in 2000. At the ti­me of its grea­test fa­me, se­ve­ral thou­sand ga­mes de­sig­ned spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for com­pu­ters with this sys­tem we­re cre­a­ted. To­day, its de­ve­lop­ment is no lon­ger con­ti­nue and for e­mu­la­tion the free DOSBox e­mu­la­tor is most of­ten used. Mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on about MS-DOS operating system can be found here.
