    Zool Remake

    There is no Sonic, only Zool.
  2. That drowning music will forever be imprinted on my mind.
  3. For me the golden age of Activision is Pitfall!, David Crane, H.E.R.O etc. Fantastic memories of that period. Alter Ego was inviting enough to this pirate I don't think I've ever seen an original.
  4. Alter Ego is amazing. Was it ignored? If so, maybe because it a was disk only game.
  5. I play Atari games over RF. Makes you think.
  6. Sadly I was unable to find my wonky copy of Geoff Capes. I was looking forward to hearing that racket again. I did fire up a few other games though that we've discussed on here recently: BC's Quest for Tires. Did we slate this? I quite enjoyed the few goes I had on it last night, but then I'm a sucker for simple arcade-style games. Yie Ar Kung-Fu. I've often seen the opinion thrown around that old arcade conversions are pointless these days as you can easily play the original games. I usually disagree with this notion, as I like exploring these conversions which are often still fun to play and offer a slightly different experience. This though does just make me want to play the arcade game. Especially when I reached Pole and he just comboed me to death each time. Also jumping diagonally sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. Yie Ar Kung-Fu II. Still a disappointment. Lovely music though. Super Cycle. Did we discuss this? Really nice to play until you reach the tenth track and wonder why there is no challenge.
  7. I had a copy of Geoff Capes back in the day and the Rob Hubbard tune that ran throughout (something tedious like Roll Out the Barrel IIRC) was all wonky and off-key. I assumed forever that Hubbard had either intentionally fobbed them off with a wonky tune for a shit game or that he was drunk or something. Totally illogical of course (what software company would pay for a massively out of tune piece of music?) but made sense to my young mind. Of course, it was just a dodgy/corrupted crack and the game music is actually completely in tune and not wonky at all. But still shit. EDIT: just watched a video and the game seems to start with a rendition of 'I'm a Lumberjack' but has different bits of music here and there. I'll have to find that dodgy crack now.
  8. Craig G - Take the Bait
  9. Doug E Fresh/Slick Rick - La Di Da Di
  10. The cards (and the 3D glasses) can also be used on a Mega Drive if you have the first version of the converter.
