XD Sonic 3 locked onto Sonic and Knuckles should be remade in 3D. It would rock a LOT, and pwn all the recent home console efforts Sega's making with it's mascot (though Rush was quite awesome)

I love colour-clash.

Has to be Wizball.

I'll admit that I haven't actually played this for about 16 years. I'm almost scared to play it on the C64 emulator in case it's not as good as I remember it. :cry:

Would also love to see World Games re-made. I absolutely LOVED this. Even thought the Sega MS version wasn't bad.

Dammit Marjorie!! World Games on the C64 was superb!!! I eXpecially loved that Cliff Diving event in Acupulco or Mexico or wherever, and the Log-Running thingy in Iceland. Tops.

It would be interesting to see what someone would do to Beach Head. Also possibly Carrier Command or possibly Armaggedon on the Amiga. I think it was called that, an absoulutley rock hard game were you had fighter jets and tanks trying to find pieces of a downed space craft. It was great apart from just being too damn difficult.

Would have to go for Moonstone as stated before a classic game.

I'd say 'Midwinter 2' but I've only been on this forum for one afternoon and have already mentioned that game in about 6 different posts already.

That's why screen grabs like this make me sad:

(For those that are thinking "what on Earth is that", it's a shot of SPLAM!, the never-released C64 emulator for GBA.)

Never heard of Splam before.

When a Gameboy Color version of Cannon Fodder was released late in the machine's life I thought there'd be a chance of other Sensible games on GBA.

this may sound silly - but I hate all this button bashing 3rd strike crap so why not re-make the 1987 'street fighter' keeping the same characters (maybe throw in akuma) but bring it up to date more in keeping with SSFII or even alpha (NOT 3rd Tripe)
