ST Game Reviews in 25 words or less.

After reading this: http://www.ilxor.com/ILX/ThreadSelectedControllerServlet?showall=true&bookmarked... GGN came up with the idea of an ST Game version.

So here it is... I'll start.

Gods: Magic Pockets with new GFX.
Kick Off: A Collection of bugs joined up to form a football game.
Dungeon Master: Vastly over-rated rip off of Alternate Reality. Only worse.

and over to you all - have fun!

That's the other way round really Tongue

Anyway:

Another world: Guy gets transported to another dimension by freak accident. Meets a mute on the way. Flies off with him and dragon in the end.
Shadow of the Beast: Who gives a shit about the ST? No, I won't give you more time. Just release the damn thing so we can get some cash!
Enchanted land: The Union needs NO custom chips!
Midnight resistance: The arcade controls suck, let's fix them!

Vroom: We coded an awesome game, now let's add playing leapfrog with other cars!
After the war: Guy kicks the shit out of guys and dogs. Then takes machine gun and beats the shit out of guys. And rats.

I loved Dungeon Master and Elite 2 - Frontier back those days (and still do!), great games with lots of atmosphere and depth. So i have to say your comments about these two are not really fair in my opinion.
I agree with the rest.

Well, this is not the idea of this thread (i.e. to criticise another's reviews). If you don't agree with the above, just write your own mini-review!
