Hi gang, time for the usual monthly drill :)
This month's question is

What's the best Bitmap Brothers game?

Xenon for the Amiga is the best by far, I like that you can transform your jet into a land vehicle by pressing the space bar, also good music and graphics.


:D

The Chaos Engine (particularly the Amiga CD32 version with its superior intro and music). For me it was kind of a classic update of Gauntlet!

Speedball II has to be the best, nothings better than beating up your best friends players in the game. Seeing the ambulance take off his best player who you have injured always brings a smile.

Yep, definitely Speedball 2. Got me into no end of trouble trying to recreate it at the local iceskating rink. An honourable mention to Xenon 2 as well though, I had my first ever proper snog whilst listening to the soundtrack!!

Speedball 2, definitely Speedball 2. It is one of only 2 sports games that I've ever really enjoyed (the other being SWOS).

Definitely Speedball 2, but I also loved Gods on the Megadrive. Bloody hard as nails though.

Speedball

Am I the only one who prefered the original? The pure simplistic brutality of it was wonderful.

Well , as the only really decent game they released was Speedball 2 ,the choice isn't that difficult

Xenon on the ST.

The first 16 bit game I played after having a Speccy for years.

I invoke Godwin's Law, this thread should be closed, and all of us what have posted should be in the magazine :D

And made you feel like you wished you hadn't bothered upgrading? :wink:

I expect some backlash, but I propose Magic Pockets.
