Retro games you would like to see on Xbox Live!

Post by buddha » Wed Feb 15, 2006 3:50 am

So we've already got Gauntlet, Joust, Smash TV and Robotron and Street Fighter is on the way.

But what else would you like to see ported/converted to Xbox Arcade?

Two for me would have to be:

Ballblazer - still very playable today and with the possibility the online multiplayer!
Speedball 2 - see above!

2D Worms would be massive on Live Arcade. I'd also like to see some Jeff Minter stuff.

ANY even half-decent shmup. By that, I don't mean Geo Wars or other Robotron clone, I mean scrolling vertical or horizontal screen full of bullets WTF! goodness.

Cotton or Gunbird get my vote.

Xybots - A online link-up option with a friend would be superb.

Jetpac - Think how much fun you could have trying to beat your friend's scores.

Mega-lo-mania - It only weighs in at around 2 megs, but would make a superb game to download. This could feature loads of achievement unlockables.

I think the classic Death Tank Zwei easter egg game in Saturn's Duke Nukem 3D would be a good choice.

Very short quick rounds, upto 6-7 players, desperate rushes for the burried weapons, nukes + 360 LIVE voice chat = Nivarna ^_^

Star Control 2. Single player only, yes, but imagine achievements based on races encountered and the like.

Speedball 2

Moonstone

Its not really retro but 4 way Command And Conquer would be good.

I think SPY vs SPY(the original sideways ones)would make a great live game just for the amount of traps you could lay down.


Bubble Bobble
