SideLine is a 2D side-scrolling shooter for DOS computers, created in the mid-90’s by a Taiwanese group called EMAG (Electronic Music and Animated Graphics, also GAME backwards). In October of 2013 a group of fans received permission from the game’s producer Jiun-Ming “Jimmy” Hwang to distribute SideLine’s original version.

Since the game requires DOSbox to run, this game is available for Windows, Linux and Mac.
