Name A Classic Game
« on: November 06, 2002, 12:25:02 AM »
Gravity Power/Force.

My school friends and I played this to death. Was there ever a game like this of another name released commercially :-?
AKA ED-209 on IRC...

Yep, and it rules. Excellent two player fun (well, GF2 anyway, I never played GF1).

It's prolly somewhere on the internet.

Whenever I think of this question, I come up with Flashback.

To me at least, it was simply everything. The graphics, the music,
the gamelplay. My only gripe was that it wasn't full screen.

Hmnmm - I preferred Another World to Flashback.   Had a cool story and was easier to get into, with more variety.

Ho Hum... nostalgia hits me again - a quick trip to UAE land needed methinks :-)

I'd seen Amigas demoed since they first came out, but after I saw Shadow Of The Beast on one, I bought my first Miggy.

Pirates!

It was the first game I saw running on an Amiga.

@kubyx

I got Little Computer People in some sort of compilation of games, and pretty quickly identified it as pure filler - I can't remember exactly what the other games were, but I think it may have been something like ten games, so quite a fair chance of striking crap :-) .  I ended up trying to amuse myself by finding the house image (an IFF on the disk - working with a back-up of the original, of course) and modifying it in DPaint, then seeing what it would look like in the game. That's bad, but what's worse is that that gave me significantly more enjoyment than the actual game.

Seriously, did you like this game? I'm not quite sure how to interpret your  :-D  smiley.  :-?

Myself, one of the first games I had on the Amiga and the greatest thieves of my time was Test Drive 2. Oh and of course Tetris. But everyone says that.

@SirStimpalot

Is it complete, or disk only?

Wow, I remember being a little kid, walking into Waldensoft and drooling over that Shadow of the Beast demo on the A500 they had set up...so much cooler than my C64...well, C128 in C64 mode.

And then there was that weirdo who worked at Waldensoft, and all he could talk about was how the C64 version of Shadow of the Beast was better than the Amiga version.

And we all made fun of him on the local BBS's, from our 300 baud modems.

Those were great times.
