Terra Cresta In those years I was already a fan of science fiction, but I had also started to like japanese cartoons with big fighting robots. Terra Cresta had all the ingredients of such toons, but keeping a more western SciFi look: just I was wishing for in a vertical shooter by the time the game ...

Just returned! I had lots of fun and good food. The people is nice and the weather so hot! The Fado is one of the most fascinating ways of expressing music that I have ever heard. Even if I can't understand almost a single word. Reminds me of classical popular Musica Napoletana, still it's so differ...

Paul Norman. The Forbidden Forest games have my favourite soundtracks, but I like the score of almost any of his games. I'd also would like to say that I really loved Jeremy Soule's Total Annihilation soundtrack. Absolutely awesome. I can't say he's my favourite composer, because I haven't listened ...

Actually, when I collect itmes, is not for the software itself anymore. I can probably find an emulated version, so even cutting the loading time. With a number of reasonable exceptions, even if I loved to, I doubt I will ever manage to play games on the original platforms. I can cope with cartridge...

Oh! There are so many good isometric games.

I'd say Immortal on Amiga, just because nobody mentioned it yet (shame on you!! ^_^).

Also, can be Enigma Force be considered isometric?

Programming a game has been one of my dreams as a child. Unfortunately I have always lacked the patience to make something out of it. So lazy I was (am...), that just after I had managed learning a few Basic instructions on the C64, I closed the books and started writing a couple of 'multiple choice...

Many games of the '80s have been "re-imagined" for the current generation of consoles, particularly those with distinctive graphical styles (Gauntlet, Ghosts'n'Goblins, Space Invaders to name a few). Would you ever consider revamping Head Over Heels or Batman to take advantage of the new tricks off...

Terra Cresta, Dangar or Terra Force are what all shooters should be like : games with vibrant graphics, catchy music, outrageous power-ups and huge explosions all around. Terra Cresta is my absolute favorite shoot'em up. I still scream "Firebird!" when I manage to gather all the 5 ship components. ...

Oh, I was almost forgetting Shadowman, PC incarnation.
