The Return Of Let's All Play

Post by Darran@Retro Gamer » Thu Apr 19, 2012 12:15 pm

Okay then so Let's All Play has been away for a while, but people keep sending me emails and pms asking for it to come back.
We're going to bring it back and we're going to overhaul it. It's going to be sleeker (only 2 pages in length) and we're going to change the structure as well.
All we have to now is decide on our first game...

Anything. Anything at all. The only stipulations I have are that it be on the c64. Oh, and if it's called The Way of the Exploding Fist then that'll be even better.

Awful game. Didn't even want to play it at the time.

It depends on what you're planning for the feature, and what you've done before, but I'd suggest something with a definitive goal that - for comedy value - may also irritate a lot of people when they get stuck on a certain bit. Like a Dizzy or Last Ninja game.

First choice for the New Season of Let's All Play must be something worthwhile, absorbing, nothing flippant, something with depth, but not complex or fanboy-ish. Starquake is an excellent choice, Vyo. Paradroid (though perhaps, unfortunately, not Quazatron at this early stage) would be another. As would Impossible Mission. Doom 2 and Crash Bandicoot (3?), too.

Of those I mentioned, I would be hard pushed to choose between Starquake and Paradroid. Both offer superb gameplay. Tough challenges, yet beatable and enjoyable. There is a wealth of variety with each game to keep the player alert and interested to find out more.

Darran, the choice is made for you. You must choose between Starquake or Paradroid to kick things off. :D
