Re: Coin-Op : The Arcade Guide

£20 - £25 is pretty pricey to be honest :( I bought the Hardcore 101 Sega Arcade book for £13 on amazon.. so £15 is the max amount I would really pay for a book that isn't a massive 500 tome or something. I can appreciate all the hard work that goes into something like this, but a high price will pu...

Re: Awful 16-bit Platformers

Does anyone remember Nipper & the Katz? An HMV promotional game on the Amiga. You controlled the HMV dog and had to collect records within a time limit. I think it was a competition. I liked that game. I agree with the poster above who doesn't like Chaos Engine. I always thought that, and every othe...

Anything that came out after Jet Set Willy is NOT retro and has no place in Retro Gamer magazine! :wink:

Re: Awful 16-bit Platformers

I always wanted to like Joe & Mac but there's something about it that ruins it. Toki is far far better. Joe & Mac feels sloppy in it's controls and hit detection and is quite sluggish. The SNES version is especially dull to play.

Re: Awful 16-bit Platformers

I always thought the Amiga struggled to do good platform games. Superfrog is good, but is very overrated for what is essentially an above average game, with a neat character. If it had come out in that exact form on the consoles it would have sunk without trace. A few of my favourite amiga platforme...

Re: Awful Platformers

Chuck Rock. Also on ST and Amiga, so perhaps its those systems limitations to blame for a port of a less than brilliant game? I'd forgotten about chuck rock.. That was pretty dire too. I also thought the sequel was awful, maybe even worse than the first one. That screaming baby was a terrible choic...

I have to disagree. It looks absolutely pathetic and has the most basic and dull gameplay of all. This might have been acceptable as a cheapo Amiga game or freeware / PD title.. but as a fully fledged SNES cartridge it is an embarrassment.

Re: Ducktales Remastered

It may be asking too much but it would be even more awesome if they include all the levels from both Duck Tales 1 and 2 on NES. After all, Duck Tales can be completed pretty quickly so I hope there is plenty on offer for the 1200 points asking price.
