Got that free PC version, I was only going by the length of time since I'd seen it mentioned in a magazine.

Plus, I don't have an iphone or anything, forgive my ignorance!
So you mentioned a game that you didn't feel should have been mentioned in this thread!?

Nor do I... but it's been mentioned on loads of news and retro gaming sites over the last few months.

The game i've been trying to remember has been revealed to me thanks to noobish :D
It's The Warriors of Zypar, a really excellent and addictive future sport sim with one or two players. Fight each other to deliver as many balls into the robots mouth as possible.

I would love to see it covered in RG :D

Yeah, people seemed to forget that Square did some pretty decent shooters back in the day. I know I did.
Einhänder anyone?

Does Wolfchild for the Amiga 500 count? Put this in not knowing what to expect. Looks alot like a mega drive game than anything else. Seems like a combination of Strider and Altered Beast. The graphics are excellent and works perfectly with the megadrive controller.
