City of the Daleks

You wait ages for a Doctor Who post, then two come along at once!

City of the Daleks, the first of four Doctor Who computer games that are also being promoted as being episodes in the current series, is now downloadable free from the BBC web site.

Windows folk, you can go get it now. If you’re afflicted with a Mac, you will have to wait until June the 15th (officially; but then officially this download was meant to be available on the 5th, so it might be worth checking a little early).

The premise of this game is that you (the Doctor) arrive in 1963 to find Earth under the heel  tentacle bonded polycarbide shell of the Daleks. What are you going to do about it? I won’t have time to get it installed before I head off to work, so you’ll have to find out for yourself…

Each game is projected to be around the size of this one, which is 330MB.
