Good shout! You could also beat the hell out of Gorillas and blind men with guide dogs too.
Beautiful big sprites too. One of my faves.

^^ That reminds me, didn't the game of Death Wish 3 allow you to massacre little old ladies?

Who would then turn on you and attack you with their handbags if you killed too many of them. :lol: :lol:

(also has one of my favourite Ben Dalglish soundtracks as well, but that's another story)

I'm pretty sure that Codemaster would have been sued to high heaven these days for Rockstar Ate my Hampster due to the use of stars images, jokes on their names and what they were portrayed doing in the game!

Little old ladies and Prostitutes!!

I never actually figured out what the actual aim of Death Wish 3 was tbh.
Me and my mates used to play it for hours literally just killing all the prossies and old women with a rocket launcher. :shock:

Agree with you on the music too.

Wasn't there a boxing game (Frank Bruno?) that featured some highly questionable racial stereotypes including a black cannibal?

I remember a spectrum game and the cover featured a white Indiana Jones type kicking a black guy with big rubber lips and a bone through his nose in the face!!

Frank Bruno's Boxing is just a Punch Out clone and Ninty did a remake of that for the Wii.
