Re: Joust

It's joust too good! :mrgreen: For me, it's always been a kind of holy grail in the arcade, because it was so rare finding one. When I had my beloved Colecovision, I was drooling over a game with similar mechanics but more of an adventure plot: Imagic's Wing War. It was me wanting Wing War against m...

Re: games with ducks

One of the trickiest puzzles in The Longest Journey involved an inflatable rubber duck, I recall.

But the real question is: how much wood wold a wood duck duck if a wood duck could duck wood?

Re: Dungeon Master-like games

yo! lorenzo! how goes man? Hi JD! I am quite fine thanks. The weather is so hot that there's no need to remind me we are still in summer. Because of that I seriously started thinking of giving up research and open a Gelateria in Tokyo. What do you think? Don't worry, I'd also make ice cream from so...

Re: gamestop removes free deus ex coupons

Ye buying a "new" game that's already been opened it just criminal imo I totally agree. I don't bother much about the fact that if I bought DE:HR I could use the OnLive service or not. But having MY new copy messed up by someone else (even if they had only removed a worthless ad leaflet), that woul...

Dungeon Master-like games

Hi, a friend of mine, who bought an Amiga just to play Dungeon Master, told me about a game project called Legend of Grimrock ( http://www.grimrock.net/ ). Has anyone already heard of it? I can't find any citation on the forum, hence there I go with this post. It appears to be the evolution of a 10 ...

There's one too in the sewers of "Deja Vu: a nightmare come true". It has to be an infestation!

Re: From the forum issue 94

My vote goes to Indiana Jones and the last crusade. My brothers and me loved the movie and so we were extremely glad to see a perfect port coming to our Amiga. The game retained all the humour, the gags and the charisma of the film, up to its epic conclusion, and even adding quite a few nice origina...

Re: Screenshot challenge.

That's Dark Seal, from Data East, arcade.
Not to be confused with Dark Seal 2 (a.k.a. Wizard Fire), recognisable by the different position of the magic bar (horizontal instead of vertical).

If I am correct, someone else can have my go, since I'll be busy for a while.

Cheers

Re: Stand out moments

How is no one has yet mentioned finishing Samantha Fox Strip Poker as a stand out moment? :mrgreen:

Anyway, back in the Amiga times, I felt compelled to play over and over again almost any intro from the Psygnosis games, particularly Shadow of the Beast 2 and Armour Geddon.

Re: Bleak moments in games

One example from the distant past: the Imagic games Atlantis and Cosmic Ark were linked by the story. When Atlantis was finally destroyed by the invaders, a lone surviving small green flying saucer managed escaping, thus avoiding the utter anihilation of a civilisation and complete extintion of a ra...

Re: How do you play your retro?

Although I would love to play everything on its original hardware, I usually play older games by emulation; especially old computer stuff for which loading times are far too long by today standards. or because the floppies and tapes and orginal equipment are so unreliable after 20 + years they risk...

I'll add Activision't Plaque Attack on the Atari 2600.
And of course Mangia' (I always wondered WHY there's an accent on the last 'a', it makes the pronounciation all wrong...), from Spectravideo on the same console. How to turn a stereotype in a game...
