Is rocket ranger hard on amiga ?
« on: March 13, 2014, 10:17:39 PM »
Dear Amigans:

I played original rocket ranger on c-64, and even though I loved it
it was very hard to play, including using a code-wheel to determine
locations to go to.
I never played the amiga version and would like to try it.
However I have a question:Is rocket ranger hard on amiga ?
Please tell me about it !!!
Thank you !!!

If you can master take off, then you be hooked.  
You will love the Amiga version.. it won an award by Amiga Computing Magazine.
 its still one of my favourite Cinemaware games as well as Defender of the Crown.

more tips:
When taking off: Mantain a steady beat with the joystick, ignore the actual sounds of him getting faster.
Try and memorise a few of the lunarium amounts to get from usa to country x.
Play a game just to practice, don't try to win everytime.
The zeppelin is easy to practice, because you can do it at the start of the game.
Keep building resistance until you are nearing the end.
Keep spies on low profile it usually pays off better.
