Giana Sisters Return on Dreamcast and GP32
« on: April 07, 2003, 08:33:32 AM »
 The Giana Sisters are returning, and there on the rag worse than before...


...I think that's where they got all there strength?


 Anyhow the coders are looking for the guys who made the orginal, so they can get permisssion to release there sequal. It will be on the Game Park 32 (open source hand held), and the Sega Dreamcast among others.

I foget the link at the moment, but I got the news off dcemulation.com a few days ago.

Mario came after Giana Sisters...
Mario is a clone of Giana Sisters...
It's actually the makers of Giana Sisters who should sew Nintendo for stealing their game idea!

Think if they won... Then there wouldn't be a sh*t machine called Nintendo any more...

I hate that platform... :-x

Im sorry but if i remember correctly and i think i do it was nintendo that sued the Giana sister guys wich got them to withdraw the game for both C64 and Amiga! but the game was already out and back then most guys having an Amiga/C64 used cracks wich is why the game got very good spread across the world.

Its not ATI Radeon at all, its a totally different architecture, but it is made by ATI.

But Nintendo have always had really good games, so I don't understand why anyone would "hate" their systems.

Right, i'm off to play Super Monkey Ball :-D

Nintendo has an unprecedented track record for
quality games and hardware in the industry, dont
know how anyone could not like them.  "Giana Sisters"
was an attempt to clone "SuperMario Bros." on
several computer platforms, since Nintendo did not
produce games for computers.  They were sued and
withdrew "Giana" from market, it still became
popular amongst computer users through widespread
"piracy" of the title.  Giana sisters never really
competed with SMB in my opinion though, since it
lacked the physics and control, Mario could speed
up while the button was held and had real inertia
etc. that Giana sisters did not capture.  In fact
one of the things nearly every platform style game
on computer systems lacked was that perfect control
and feel of inertia that Mario could capture...

Now off to play: "Zelda: The Wind Waker." and
                 "Ikaruga" :)

Aaaaactually Super Mario Bros was released in 1985 and The Great Giana Sisters in 1987.

Mario was first, but Giana was better 8-)

HEY, I found the link to the site with the sequal, it is also going to be on the Dreamcast and other systems, that is if they can track down the original authors and get permission to release it:

http://chn.roarvgm.com/

 Please I know it ain't for Amiga, but E-mail them anyhow and let them know what you think about the whole idea.



I just saw a page where it said that the SMB clone was a Sprite hack to Giana Sisters, that is pretty kool. Has this been done to the Amjiga version, if so does anyone have it, or know how to do this sort of thing.

 Giana blew Super Mario 1 away for the record. No you could not run, but that did not take away from the game at all, and the play mechanics were fine!

I am really looking foward to this sequal, and hope they release more.

c'mon boys... Don't tell me you prefere a Nintendo for eg.  a PS2? The Nintendo game titles are mostly for children, while PS2 titles aren't...

See my point now?

I bought a GBA for my 4 yr old son last christmas.  It's ace.  The next one I get for him will be a GameCube.  We can play the games together.  Father/Son bonding time.
