Retro clones/remakes A-Z list

Post by Haggler » Wed Jul 07, 2010 2:16 pm

Ok i'm new here but considering you're a retro gaming forum thought i'd share this with you, i decided to post links to not one but two comprehensive A-Z lists, i recently knocked together two lists of Retro clones/remakes, one for Retro remakes forum and the other for AVforums.

Due to my thread on AVforums being two years old it has just received a comprehensive update, alongside the obvious download links for the included games i have also included video previews of included games where available and original game music remixes for play and download, all included content should be freeware. The Retro remakes list is devoid of the play/download remixed music due to the forum not supporting the play feature and both lists have had everything (clips,images) hosted at different places, now if either forum is down the list will still be accessible at the other location.

These lists are remakes/clones of previously commercial or pd released titles, there are no 'retro type' games included.

Note :- None of lists were requested from either forum, rather me deciding they were needed :D

None of these titles require emulators to run, they are Retro clones/remakes of the original titles and just need a pc, for the anti install brigade you can check whether it needs installing or not prior to downloading as i have included that info too.

I hope you enjoy this resource, it has taken me many many hours of spare time and a few months of updating at both sites to finish what i started, enjoy.

Click the images below to view the appropriate list (note the include game content is the same on both lists) the download resources are added as guide only :-

Updated both lists again, please note though when i add titles i don't include only new releases, due to the amount of remakes that have been released there are loads of missed gems, two of those which were missed due to download links being broken are now included.

New additions include a remake of splatterhouse called living hell, another remake of Green beret namely Red forces, Spy hunter (one switch) and Castlevania the bloodleting (Remake of the never released 32x title)

There's another superb remake of arcade classic donkey kong which i'll include soon, this contains at least 4 extra levels and online high scores there's a few bugs still to iron out imo, but it's already fantastic and a great challenge, i love this game and it's what i'm currently playing atm.

For now enjoy what's here :wink:

Yep indeed, it features like everything else on both lists, should hopefully provide a bit more promotion for all your effort. 8)

Can I suggest that Astrogeddon (http://www.ortsoftware.com/ag.html) is a much closer Stardust/Super Stardust clone/remake?

Going on looks alone you're probably right, however it isn't a freeware title which is all the lists contain and therefore cannot be included, i knocked these lists together as a promotional aid (lot's of sites link to them) for all classic game remakers who get little in the way of thanks for all their effort and maybe don't have the time to spend promoting their games.

I have played nearly all of the included remakes myself and to a large extent enjoyed doing so and it's only fair given my lack of game making skills that i help out somehow, these lists enabled me to do that (mainly consuming my time and forum use) and give something back to the community for others to enjoy, promotion and recognition of a decent product encourages you the remaker to maybe continue making more, commercial products don't really need that as they could do a much better promoting job themselves i'm sure....
