Super Dropzone (Archer McLean's) for SNES?

Post by blakespot » Sun Jan 28, 2007 8:57 am

Does anyone have Super Dropzone for the SNES? Does it actually exist?

I've got it for the GBA and have Dropzone for the C64 and Atari 800 (play on my GP2X) - but I've never seen it redone at higher-than-GBA-resolution on the SNES.

How is it? Does it work with emus? Tnx.

I had it with my first SNES, but when I sold it, along went the game.

And it works in emu's yes.

I have the PAL SNES cart. Can't say I've played it much, I went on a bit of a spree and its one of the games that suffered from having too many new games at once. But at least it confirms it exists.

Yeah, got it myself (cart only) and completed it... not a bad game, just not as "pure" as the original...

I've got the game and it's pretty good if you're into defender clones.

It's pretty much Dropzone with prettier sprites and a busier background.

Far better to play an 8bit version.

There's also a not bad Gameboy Colour version out there.

The GBC version is very playable, if a little easier than other 8bit version.

Just don't play the PS1 version. It's awful.

The Terminator: Apple II+

I saw this brilliant little tidbit here: http://blog.wired.com/tableofmalcontent ... ator_.html

Apparently the scrolling code you see through the eyes of the Terminator is from an old type-in game listing for the Apple II+ called Nibble.

Somehow he doesn't seem so scary now. :D
