System requirements for old Apogee games... WTF?
Okay, either someone messed up the requirements for the old (MS-DOS) Apogee games, or they're being run on a terribly inefficient emulator, way more inefficient than DosBox.
Apparently, Alien Carnage, Arctic Adventures, Math Rescue, and effectively all MS-DOS Apogee games now require an Intel Core 2 Duo or higher, and at least 2 GB of RAM!

WHAAAT?!?!?!?!

Looks like they just copy and pasted the max specs from the emulator

No way DOS Box requires 2GB of RAM! It ran acceptably well on my old P4 3.4GHz with only 1GB RAM!

On the other hand if your system doesn't meet those specifications you must own a laptop over a decade old

Even that is already enough to run DOS Box.
