What are you playing currently?
« on: August 24, 2012, 03:55:57 AM »
Any amiga game you are playing quite a bit currently / recently?


I've printed out a manual for Combat Air Patrol to really dig into it this weekend. Right now, I've been playing Breathless quite a bit. It's really quite a nice game, once you take it for what it is, rather than what it isn't.

Beat Turrican 3 again-again last night. I mostly know that one by heart, but it's relaxing to just blast through it now and again.

It's pretty tough. I haven't made it that far, but I think it's better to be kind of cautious. It looks like a run n gun, but rushing in will usually get you blasted by robots

I never could adjust to that rotary gun thing.  Actually, I quickly became frustrated and never gave any version of Turrican another try.

As much as I enjoy 3 I am frustrated by the silly grappling hook thing. A very clunky mechanic that could have easily been mapped to the keyboard. Unless I am missing something. lol
 
I am currently trying to complete the later towers on Tower of Babel. It gets a little complicated on some of the later stages. I am also trying to work my way through Alien Breed: Tower Assault.

I'm not sure about tower assault. They claim there are many different ways to complete the game but i only did it once barely. Has anyone ever finished it in multiple ways?

I always end up stumbling into an area where my piddly machine gun just won't cut it. So I think it might be one of those cases where there's many ways... in theory :)

I must admit, I play Alien Breed 2 more than Tower Assault, which is a pity, as TA has so many good ideas.

I have only completed it once by avoiding the military tower as much as possible. Later sections in that tower have mutants and wall cannons to compete with along side the aliens. Also a lot of the later levels use the cheap tactic of giving you a race against the clock in a labyrinth. But its still a good game. As is alien breed 2.

But I am biased as they were developed in my home town. I also had a drink last year with the developers in a pub.

Tell me more! What town are you talking about? And how drunk did you get? HAHA!

Also since you have also finished it did you see the FMV anywhere in the game that is on the box? There is a couple of screenshots that show an Alien with a shadow walking down the corridor. Never saw it in the game though...

Currently on my list of active games I have:
Robin of Sherlock (Spectrum 48K)
Wizardry II (PC - original copy on 5.25" 320K discs, still works perfectly on my K6-2/380!)
Dungeon Master (Amiga 500)

I dip into other games but they're the ones I play most at the moment when I get chance! I have them all set up (along with a Sam 440ep and an A4000 PPC) in the corner of the living room so I can play them while the wife plays Warhawk or whatever.
