Which amiga game could do with a modern makeover?
« on: August 10, 2010, 11:38:55 AM »
Let me hear your choice or choices.
One thing, amiga games only.. :) If it been done on the PC later, then it does not count as an amiga game. :)
Unfinished "conversions" or amiga games counts as amiga only.

At the moment I am up to Level 3 Mission 2 of Captive.

I would really love to see a remake of this game.

Since all games of this genre went wolfenstein->doom->quake->tomb raider the gameplay has been lost.  Lifelike games suck, games aren't meant to be realistic to life.

I'd quite happily walk around a maze 1 square of the map at a time in a modern remake with cool 3D graphics and as opposed to moving in a 3d world.  Captive was fast and real-time enough for my liking.  I am loving playing this game again after a 18-20yr 'break' lol.

Yea, and sadly. most really popular amiga titles were converted to other platforms. Or were not amiga original.

The Faery Tale Adventure,... :)

The very first game I bought and played on my old A1000. At that point in time the graphics (daytime turning to night etc..) and the sheer scale of the landscape quite simply blew me away. (and it all came on a single floppy disk)... :)

Midwinter.
Skiing, hang-gliding, it's cool.
The AD&D goldbox series.
Street Rod. There was an effort to make a Streetrod 3, but I think it's been abandoned.

The biggest problem doing an Amiga game remake is that even if a programmer was up to the task and I'd imagine there are a few around, a programmer is not the same thing as a graphics artist or 3d guru- and most modern games these days require a few of these guys to work their magic and sell such a game.  There are so many disciplines in making a game these days!

I say skip Captive (the remake, that is, by all means play the game :)) and go straight to a remake of Liberation. Fantastic dystopian/noir atmosphere and nonlinear gameplay. I think a modern version would do very well, especially with cooperative multiplayer.

Yes, Feary Tale Adventure was amazing and had some kind of magic in it.
I already started an attempt to do something similar, with more modern techniqus (but no 3d). But that is not really a remake. I think the story itself is to thin for nowadays.

I played Heros Quest the other day, I loved that game and Legacy of Sorasil.
I think games like that should be doable, and with a flexible engine, it might be used to do remakes of Skeleton crew, Alien Breed and games like them.

Liberation was pants period.  But yes something along those lines, but the player should not be left running around for hours wondering what the hell to do or where to go; linear gameplay is better than non-linear in my opinion.

The only thing I remember being unique in that game is how you stored items in inventory - slotless - you basically dragged whatever you was carrying to fit in the given space on the screen; that alone was highly original.

Liberation was a huge let down for many players who loved Captive.

I would like to see a remake of Cannon Fodder. Granted, this game has been ported to almost every computer/console of its time but it is an Amiga original.

Could have coop multiplay but should have the same gameplay; so no FPS!

I would not vote for FPS either, now adays, its seems like FPS are pretty much they only kind of games being made. I know its not completely true, but still..

Cannon Fodder could be done with more or less the same engine as mentioned above. Well at least I beleive it could be.
