Donkey Kong on the Dragon 32 is as playable as all the other versions.

I'm both an Amiga and Castlevania fanboy, and I don't think I ever played Castlevania on the Amiga.

Music sounds good, even if it's sometimes out of tune, but everything else looks terrible. Those ghosts at the beginning look stupid, are too tall and move way too fast. Dracula looks hilarious, both before and after the transformation. And I can't even imagine how it controls.

Castlevania - looks like a fan made game, possibly from one of those create-a-game software packages. Might be an official release, but I never heard of it, and it doesn't look like one.

Sorry, what was the question?

Oh yeah, much better on the NES. Never seen it on the Amiga.

Hi,

How about a feature on games that were better on inferior hardware.

For example Sonic on the master system was clearly better then sonic on the megadrive
I used to think this too because I made the mistake of playing Sonic 2 on megadrive before Sonic 1. The lack of spin dash killed it for me and so I thought the master system version was clearly better. However, I played Sonic 1 again 20 years later and this time I thoroughly enjoyed it and probably because my sonic 2 experience was now very cloudy after such a long time. Sonic 1 is a kick-ass game and especially if you play it before Sonic 2.

This should be a regular column.

River Raid on the 2600.
I hear the VIC-20 version of Gridrunner/Matrix is the better one.

It wasn't clearly better, they're both amazing games in their own right (though I prefer the SMS version).
However, I do think this would be a good thing to cover ^^

They already have in this month's issue believe it or not. :wink:
Well, sonic on master system anyway. And yes, I preferred it to the mega-drive version but the sequels sucked.

Salamander on the C64 in my opinion beats even the arcade, in terms of playability and soundtrack. The graphics on the arcade win, but I definitely believe the C64 trumps the arcade version!
