Cybernoid 2 - The Revenge on the Amiga. I lied to everyone when I was a kid that I had completed it, so I feel guilty.

Terminus: The Prison Planet on the Speccy. I've always wanted to complete it and have tried on several occasions, both as a child and an adult. I will complete it, I'm just not sure when...

Buzzsaw+ - because Kelky-poos has already previewed it and it's about time I finished coding it and started on something else! :lol:

Albert Odyssey on the Sega Saturn, brillient game, awesome story and characters and amazing graphics and sound, a must have! Seriously expensive and hard to get hold of a copy in the UK though, but well worth it.

Cosmic Spacehead on Megadrive beacause I finished the Master System version many moons ago and I only think its right to play a 'next gen' version of the game!.

Yes it's early but we're on a tight deadline ;)

What retro game do you resolve to finish in 2011 and why?
I intend to finish a gaming system... I need to finish wiring up my Neo Geo MVS supergun.

I plan to run through every game on Mario All Stars. I will play nothing else until I have succeeded. Happy Birthday Mario!

As I have said, the other three aren't too bad, but Lost Levels is a bee-yatch.

I am gonna complete Donkey Kong Country. I have been loving the new Donkey Kong Country Returns game on the Wii. Now I have completed this I think it is about time that I finally put the original to rest.

I want to get from beginning to end on Super Mario Bros on the NES. I've only ever completed the first castle and a bit of 2-1, but that's it. How can I call myself a retro gaming if I've not finished SMB???
