Quote from: Zoe Robinson on 18:01, 06 December 17Galactic Plague is a game that requires you to memorise patterns. Once you know the patterns, it's actually not that difficult to play. I'm surprised it has such a bad reputation because it's actually quite fun.
Quote from: EgoTrip on 00:38, 07 December 17The two Roland games were high quality, even if flawed, for the time they were released, and Oh Mummy is a classic. Sultan's Maze is slow, but it's a good game. Very primitive and basic yes, but it's still playable.
Quote from: chinnyhill10The reason it has a bad reputation is because you die a few seconds after starting, over and over again until you work out what is going on. I suspect many people never got past that.
Quote from: Zoe Robinson on 14:04, 16 December 17It's a fair point. I won't deny the game has flaws but if you're prepared to give it a chance, it's a lot of fun. When I first tried it, I'll admit I died a lot within seconds of starting. I do understand how people can get put off by that - but this game is from the very early days of gaming. It's only a handful of years after computers started arriving in peoples' homes and designers were still working out what games were never mind how to make them good. I'm prepared to take it for what it is, a flawed but fun game. Not a classic, not by any means, but it's fun in its own way.
Quote from: ukmarkh on 16:20, 16 December 17Galactic Plague was a good game for the time, but I preferred Classic Axiens from Bubble Bus Software I believe Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 17:00, 18 December 17Classic Invaders was also pretty good too.On the Amsoft side, Lazerwarp was really good, although I think that's Mikro Gen's title initially.
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 14:24, 19 December 17Bubble Bus did em separately as full price I think, then Alternative released all 3 as a pack in 89 as Classic Arcadia.
Quote from: Gryzor on 13:18, 04 January 18Late to the party, but since Bubble Bus was mentioned, I always loved Classic Invaders (the intro tune is still in my head!) and Classic Axiens. Also loved their other titles... honest and cute.
Quote from: Zoe Robinson on 20:45, 04 January 18Sweevo's World is a weird game. I'm going to have to give it another go soon but from what I remember, it was basically a Batman rip-off with more stupid puzzles.
Quote from: ukmarkh on 12:22, 23 January 18So basically I'm the only one in here who loved Sweevo's World, I thought it was a cracking little game Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 12:31, 23 January 18Isometric adventure wasn't really anything I had the patience for back then.Maybe now, my tune will change. But there were too many unnecessary ones. I always classed Sweevos World and Hydrofool in that categories.
Quote from: ukmarkh on 12:35, 23 January 18If you ever do go back in, start with one of the earliest and work your way up to Head over Heels, probably the best game I've ever played. It's one of those games you appreciate and fall in love with the further you progress. The Amstrad version is definitely the best of the lot, although I did like the PCW and Amiga efforts.
