Re: Movies that never got games

Nothing directly based on Conan the Barbarian. There was going to be a Jaguar game based on Conan The Barbarian, a scrolling beat 'em up no less. You can see it in this video if you skip to 2:52 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgBRt1Or0cY I was gutted when it never got released :( Looks very Gold...
