Clone

Back in 1996-97, I momentarily quit college to devote myself to a wonderful 2-year journey that would take me from a simple – but very nice – idea, to a complete shareware title distributed by a commercial publisher.

A handful of great reviews

If you enjoy creative and devilish turn-based puzzle games that never seem to run out of surprises, Clone is a game for you. With 6 huge worlds and a near endless variety of levels, it is definitely one of the best shareware puzzlers ever made. — old-games.com

[…] I put this on the same level as Lemmings, The Incredible Machine and other great puzzlers from the nineties. It’s a game so varied and so well designed that any puzzle fan would be utterly remiss to pass it by.” — escapistmagazine.com

This is an excellent puzzle game that I can highly recommend. […] The levels are well thought out, and there are a good variety of puzzles. The sound effects were spot-on, and I loved our hero’s speech. The graphics were brilliant, with every episode having a distinct theme. […] If you like challenging puzzle games, you are sure to love this one. — reloaded.org (4.5 star editor raking)

Download it now

Old PC game fans all know the DOS BOX emulator can do miracles in bringing back old memories alive.

  • Download and install DOS BOX and Clone.
  • Or play it in your browser at archive.org! Even though the performance is not quite as good as a native installation, I was very surprised to discover via Google that Clone was hosted to be played on the web!

YouTube has it all

I was also astounded to find very recent (2017) video walk-throughs of the first and second episodes on YouTube by a Clone enthousiast! :)
