I bet The Last Ninja is going to be FUN to play with the virtual keyboard :roll:

Don't they even have the decency to map the needed k/b buttons to the control pad?

They expect people to part with their money but yet you can just emulate and download the disk image for free and not suffer these problems.

I expect they have to be honest. Unless there's dozens of keys required (I don't remember!)

I may actually be tempted to get World Games now that I have enough stars points to change.

Space Bar to change weapons/stop using weapons
F3/F5 to change objects

Both are vital

Yeah, that's an important feature imo, the Last Ninja loading music between levels is superb. Sometimes when I play a c64 game on the ol' Xbox I load the actual tape images in instead of snapshots just so I can listen to the cool loading tunes.

Yeah, I know that's incredibly sad. :P

No it's not, game music rules! :) I've got a Rolo to the Rescue tune for my ringtone on my phone :P

I never 'got' The Last Ninja. :shock: I have only played it on the Speccy though :|

people, you can download a c64 emulator and last ninja, or any of the other 10000's c64 games for free. why collect points, why wii, why ?

edit: also you can download and listen to c64 music free, hvsc sports about 35000 sid titles, and that doesnt count the sub tunes....

I dont think anyone here is writing to the forum using a wii -> they all have a pc -> you can download c64 emulator & games & sidplay & music.

edit: nitpickers: c64 emulators and sidplay exist for linux, mac, but even for cellphones, psp, etc, etc etc.
