ChinnyVision - Rampage
« on: 02:28, 03 September 17 »
Fairly decent conversion to the CPC. A bit of slowdown here and there mind. But not bad at all.

Lovely review!


Brought back loads of memories that one, but now it looks like Warner have got it... The thought of a remake is well gone!


Better to see what ends up on Steam! <--- ~Half arsed shovelware

Bizarre isn't it? Why turn a 30 year old game that nobody under the age of 30 remembers into a movie?

One of my faves from the arcades, remember this being in my local snooker hall when it opened in 87.

Bob Pape wasn't responsible for R-Type on the Amstrad, btw. That honour went to Keith A. Goodyer. Some interesting comments made from both on both versions here: http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/R-Type

I am really glad that you settled on the Amstrad being the better out of the 8bit Micros though, cos I really didn't agree with all of the praise on the Spectrum version. I found the characters clumsy as hell when it came to trying to climb the buildings on the Speccy.  :laugh:

After Rampage, we'll probably have a Spy Hunter: The Movie, starring Vin Diesel! :D

There was gonna be a Spy Hunter film but while that didn't get made, the tie-in game did.  And the game starred The Rock (yes, him again).  And it mostly sucked.
Favorite CPC games: SwitchBlade, Stryker in the Crypts of Trogan, Turrican II, UN Squadron, Oh Mummy

Of course, Pape did the Speccy version. Problem when you do these things unscripted is that you just say what comes into your head. I was nearly right! :-)


Goodyer also wrote Speedzone and Rik The Road, two absolutely terrible games so it's questionable what kind of conversion he'd have done no matter how much time he had. Speedzone is lamentable and as for Rik, a game so rotten I took it back and claimed it failed to load!

To be fair, Rik The Roadie never really stood a chance to be decent on any platforme. I played it on the Speccy recently and it's three minutes of my life I'd never get back again...
