Hi all
« on: February 10, 2008, 12:10:53 AM »
Hey,
    My name is Chris and I have recently emmigrated to Canada from England. I am 30 years old n many years ago I had the amiga and loved it but most of my games were damaged as I was to young to look after stuff. I stumbled across the program winUAE a while back and I am very new to it but almost got it going ! Played only one game up to now which is cannon fodder, but I have like 400 games almost on my hard drive.

There is one game I used to love and I cannot think for the life of me what it was called. There was scientists or proffessors trapped in rooms and you had to guide them through corridors to safety in a maze of rooms. Thats all I can remember. Can any of you guys remember it ?

lol, I seen pictures of that already so I am afraid there is no prize haha

It didnt look familiar but I think you are right. I am pretty sure it was for the amiga, I am wondering if I may of played it on the spectrum 64 but thats going back a heck of a long way.

Is winAUE the best emulator ? Does anyone know if you can buy the zipstick I think it was called with a USB ?

The general concensus is that WinUAE is the best emulator for compatibility and features, and Amithlon is the best for pure speed. Google for AmiKit, a really great Amiga environment for WinUAE.

The only digital joystick that I am aware of with a USB connector is the Competition Pro, but they are not as good as on the Amiga.

hey,
    That definatly wasn't the game. The guys in the one I played all had white jackets on and they run around like lemmings on steroids ! There was no revolving cannons all I remember where automatic doors and there was a count down of the scientists you had saved.

isometric, nope it wasn't sink or swim.

There might actually be a cash prize yet lol

This may well of been for the spectrum 64 I am not sure, I was like 8 at the time.

Then I don't know it :-/
btw. there has never been any "spectrum 64". However, there was a "Commodore 64" and a "Sinclair ZX Spectrum".

Nope, pretty close. I stumbled across another guy I am not sure uf he is looking for the same one. Weird if he is !!

Similar to "Escape from the Planet of the Robot Monsters"
Although I do not remember any of the details of the game he is, the look of it is very similar.
