This page is under construction.
Dinosaur Adventure (1993)
Testing equipment: 486SX-25, 16MB RAM, Covox speech thing (7.5/15kOhm +-0.3% accuracy) This game has a lot of options for sound, Covox Speech Thing among them. If you turn on "Covox Speech Thing" in options menu, covox will be used for dinosaur roaring and speech, while PC speaker will be used for beeping music-like tunes. The sound is of low quality, but audible.
Aces of the Deep (1994)
Testing equipment: 486SX-25, 16MB RAM, Covox speech thing (7.5/15kOhm +-0.3% accuracy) This game has "Speech Thing" option in the setup menu. However, it does not seem to do anything, the game remains absolutely silent if you turn it on.
Amarillo Slim Dealer's Choice (1991)
Testing equipment: 486SX-25, 16MB RAM, Covox speech thing (7.5/15kOhm +-0.3% accuracy) Slim Dealer's Choice is a poker simulation game. It can use Covox for music and speech playback. This includes speech comments on each action in the game (when you press "Bid" the covox says "Bid"), an intro melody in the main menu and an occasional beep on events like the end of a round. Different voices are available, male and female. You can enable Covox sound by activating "S-Thing" as "Sound board" in "Set Controls" menu. This is very strange, as the menu itself has little to do with controls and Covox Speech Thing is not a sound board. The sound is of low quality, but audible.
