In the case of Populous and Speedball the sequels were the games that really were the classics.

Also, don't forget Sensible Software (Mega-lo-Mania, Cannon Fodder, SWOS) or Cinemaware (Defender of the Crown, Wings, Rocket Ranger - though we are really into ABFEG territory with these).

Respec'. But that final screen in the first one was fuckin' hard! Treasure Island dizzy was a bit shit too.

Has anyone mentioned Speedball 2? Surely the daddy of all games ever.

Tau Ceti
07-11-2002, 19:13:54
Funko did, and I would have if he hadn't. One of the best games ever.

Ah, the glory of finally being able to thrash Super Nashwan and Fatal Justice...

Or at the other extreme, meeting Baroque in the cup semi final. I think I won 468-2. :lol:

Funkodrom

It was brilliant as a 2 player game as well. K_G and I played a lot of that.

Tau Ceti

It certainly was. But you could not get star players there. No buying the best centre forward and just smashing him straight through the other team into the goal, causing 4 substitutions for the other team in one game (meaning injured players were put back on! :lol:)

I love how you got points for injuring players on the other team.

Funkodrom
07-11-2002, 19:35:52
:lol: Yeah, that was a great touch.

I had Privateer but just didn't like it. I don't know why, but I just never got into it.

Genius choice. I loved that game on the Amiga. Even better than the majestic Stunt Car Racer
