Oh how I laughed this morning when I saw you'd fixed Mudpies!  C'mon, you have to admit that you're enjoying these joke releases Cheesy I just feel sorry for the poor blighter who has to test them!

Can we have Chopper X by Paradox please?  I actually used to play that as a kid, and can confirm that it is truley shite.

(Apparently Chopper X would take over an hour to fix, so I can't have it)

Oh come on!  Checkers?  Today's 'gift' is soooo bad it's not funny!  The write-up by GGN on the other hand is quite amusing though, so I'll let you off. Wink

I dread to imagine what's coming up next!  Cheesy

The opposite of "How high can you try" is "How low can you go"

We've not hit the bottom yet...

Who on earth thought that an Edd the Duck game would be a good idea?!  I can't imagine that it sold well - I wonder if this tosh resulted in someone from the BBC getting their P45...

Heheh - it's funny that Edd gets more posts here than any other game!

And wtf is this doing on Wikipedia!  ROFL!  Grin

"It has been recently revealed that Edd had a homosexual relationship with his older more respected Broom Cupboard colleague of Gordon the Gopher."

I would play WarZone if it had a trainer  Tongue  It was the first game that I bought for the ST and it was too difficult. So D-BUG, give me a trained War Zone, please.

ST Karate was from Paradox as well and 20 years ago I thought it was quite nice  Cheesy

I believe lots of Paradox titles also have MIDI music so connect those MIDI keyboards to your ST  Cool

Wasn't Bomb Jack also developed by Paradox? As far as I remember it has MIDI music as well. And this game is quite enjoyable.

Now for my xmas wish list (which is a bit pointless as I know these aren't in the line up)...

Bonanza Bros - I played the ST port of this the other day and was really surprised at how well this psuedo 3D platforming rob-em-up plays on the Atari - well worth a look.

Stardust - I don't care that this can't be falconised!  I just want an HD patch so I can remove three disks from my box and play this great game with ease!!!

Eliminator - Classic Hewson shooter that is actually better on the ST than Amiga!  W00t!

Rubicon - Boss-rush shoot-em-up that plays really well and has stood the test of time.  Great gfx considering the limitations of the ST palette - very Bitmap Bros.  Also has the same name as a very tasty brand of exotic juice drinks Wink

Plutos - An AWESOME two-player shooter that really pushes the ST to it's limits!  OK, that's a lie.  Wink But despite being 80's Microdeal pap, this game is actually great fun with two players...  Although the Atari 7800 prototype port is much better!

Magic Boy - Massively underated cutesy platformer.  It has rasters too!

I could go on, but this exercise is rather pointless, and I'll be happy with whatever the DBug future releases are... well, I will be after the onslaught of bad games have finished! Wink


You can also post these in the wish list thread - occasionally we go through that thread and get ideas of what to do next!


Yay!  Plutos is patched!  First Edd The Duck and now this?!  Wow, CJ you are really spoiling me this year!
