BETA v1.9.6 

Please be aware this game is currently in Early Access Beta. It is a solo developer project, and hasn't been thoroughly  tested by a development team. You may experience glitches or bugs during your play through. Please report them by joining the community. Thanks!

Known Bugs/Issues

  • There is no player save functionality currently implemented, but it should only take 1.5-2 hours to complete the game anyway.(Video/graphics options do save)
  • After a respawn the player currently drops all firearms, and you have to pick them back up.(I have it coded this way to avoid a certain CTD I was getting during a respawn. Hopefully fixable in a future version)

Compatible with Windows 64-bit & 32-bit PC rigs

Medium to High spec PC rigs are recommended.

Game developed and tested on

  • 16GB RAM
  • Windows 7
  • Radeon RX 580

Yes we all like to cheat sometimes:) So I have included a menu that allows you to do just that. Need ammo? No problem. Need rations? I got you covered. A  cheat sheet has been included in the download. This was actually a personal addition I added to Steel Gear to help me with the development process. Have fun with it! 

Playing the game will be very similar to the original, but not exact. Some weapons and equipment have been changed completely. Also, new explorable areas have been added. It will be a whole new gaming experience, with a heavy taste of nostalgia.


THIS GAME DOES NOT HOLD YOUR HAND! If you are having problems, following a walkthrough for the NES version will get you through it . Veteran players of the original will have no issues on where to go.(You've done this before!)
