Title: Forgotten Worlds - GameHammer
Post by: Zoe Robinson on 00:38, 11 November 17
Who remembers this classic from back in the day? I used to love this game, even if it was excessively hard and made me want to chew on the joystick in rage more than once.

It scrolls really nicely on the CPC and it's pretty speedy, too. Could have done with more than one life, though.  >:(

Yep, remember this as I was a big fan of it in the arcades.

Capcom were the masters of one life games though. 1943, Forgotten Worlds, and I'm sure there are others.
Must give this another run through over the weekend.

1943 is a bugger, as I recall. I was terrible at it and one life never helped!


Happy gaming! :D

The best game that US Gold did for the CPC in my opinion.

1943 in the arcade was a lot of fun. On the CPC it was boring and repetitive due to it being the same three levels on loop.
C64 version was also fun, but a little easy.

It's up there. But Solomon's key and Shadow Dancer are also great games.

This one scrolls pretty good, I haven't found information on how it is done.

Does anyone know?

I think I played his one on the Megadrive. It really shines in two players coop mode.
