How much is it for the PAL version, might consider buying it soon.

I gave this a whirl recently, the sound effects in this game and general sound design is quite memorable. brought back a few memories!

Klonoa? Be prepared to pay anything from £30-60.

Wow I think I'll try it in an emulator first so that I get the idea of what it's like before I decide to spend that amount of money on it. Hope it's a good game and worth this kind of prices.

I still have my PS1 copy I got for my 15th birthday. It took me a few goes to get into it but then I had a good old whirl with it and became quite good at one stage!

I remember playing the demo, but never got round to playing the full game.

What I did play I quite enjoyed...

You can definitely install an app on your local machine to an iPhone via iTunes after it has been pulled from the store. Problem is, will it run on the more recent phone / OS version? Sometimes yes, oftentimes no.

All of Jeff's games stopped working 3-4 years go with an OS update. Jeff made extremely little profit on the App Store and was soured by the experience. Asking him about it, he no longer has the Mac he used to develop them, so couldn't update them if he wanted to at present. He finally made a blog post about it.

I reviewed and evangelized all of Jeff's great iOS work and was sad to see them go.

That's sad but seems indicative of gaming today. Minotaur Rescue was my favourite mobile game hands down. Would love to see it re-emerge somewhere down the line.

Loved it on my Saturn, they acctually hid cheat codes in plain view in the manual, including the one that unlocks every stage.

Well, you might be in luck, looking at Minter's twitter activity around his VR efforts.

I remember seeing this running on an N-gage, it was astounding to see something like this running on a handheld in about 2003 or whenever it was & it's what convinced me to buy one...so it's got q lot to answer for!!! :evil:

This, and of course Tomb Raider....running on a mobile device! Was very impressive at the time. Wasn't really matched till the Xperia Play showed up....i'm still waiting for Sony to release the successor to that hardware (but presume I'll be a cobwebbed up skeleton by that time).

I had Pandemonium for Windows 95. The game was too demanding for my Pentium 90 so I had to play it in a small 320 * 200 window.
Cannot remember much of it, though.
