Two games on the Amiga (under WinUAE) at the mo.

Stunt Car Racer - Division 2 but can never seem to win it as I'm not very good at it!

Dragon Strike - Riding Dolce at the moment, but I keep dying on the mission with that flying castle thing and all those bloomin' red dragons!!! :evil: :evil: :evil:

I've enjoyed playing on Lemmings II: The Tribe. It's the game that made me laugh thanks to the voices of those creatures. :lol:

Try playing it on Taito Legends on hard setting. You should be able to clock the first time round on 1 credit. :wink:

Exactly. The game is so difficult that it can be very frustrating!! :x

Should give it a go on a BBC emulator in Master mode. The B and Master versions both had many differences in the level designs and foes you'd encounter, almost like an alternate map really.

Oh yeah, and don't even dream about finishing the game, it's EXTREMELY long. Sorry to be a killjoy :D

Have been playing it with the Zapper, is it any easier on the game pad?

It depends if you want to try something different. I had used the controller to play this game which works fine. However, moving the target sight around with the d-pad is going to be tricky.

Since I first played it on the Master System, I'll stick with the Light Phaser. :wink:

Aliens on MAME. I spent so much money on this in the arcade & it's nice to get past the second level now. I've been playing Aliens vs Predator quite a lot too.

2600 Centipede on the Atari Anthology disc, in timewarp mode. :D
The constant speeding up and slowing down adds a whole new level of rhythm based strategy to the gameplay and it becomes quite hypnotic after a while.
