You can see the screenshots of Wings on Cinemaware's website:

They have been there for a while, and they look great trust me :-D  :-o  :-D

My top 3 have to be

1. Settlers (ahhh the memories that go with this one - an amazing game that I spent hours and hours on!)
2. Stunt Car Racer (A great laugh with a couple of m8s and amazing realistic engine roars!)
3. Napalm (Never played this one but it looks amazing)

Payback also gets my vote as well :)

By the way - the comment about Wings being remastered - this is correct but it is being remastered for PC and MAC only :(

Da.

Best multiplayer game: Dynablaster.

Make use of the 2-joystick serial port thingy and you can have 5 players (one on keyboard - usually me by choice.)


Dynablaster was fun, but our Blitzbombers has 8 player mayhem, with the option of link up games, and having the screen split over both machines monitors which was like the option in Super Skidmarks 2 - and the kind of thing they are doing with modern gfx cards with thier dualhead/triple head technology.

Which game had the best Intro?

IMO it was SOTB II....


That was a good intro, but I feel was superceeded by the excellent intros from both Another World and Flashback. Also another game whose intro I did like was the old classic Stryx.

So will you be TELLING me that you`ve finished frontier-elite?


...I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams ... glitter in the dark near Tanhauser Gate...

It's because Cinemaware still has the licence for the Amiga :-D

ClickBOOM wants the licence, and I hope they will get it :-D

I have written an email to Cinamaware, about Wings (for the Amiga platform), but they have not answered :-(

Cannon Fodder is definately up there with the great classics. Sensible software had such a good sense of humour.

That song "War has never been so much fun" is unforgettable.  :-D

Never was really into games, but here is my list:

Lotus (not II or III) nights full of death-matches.

R-Type/Wing of Death for shooters.

Lemmings,Lemmings and even more green-haired bastards.

MegaBall simple but addictive.

Rick Dangerous "aooooouuuuu" waves with hands.
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

Does anyone ever remember Sneech?

It came on the cover disk of Amiga Format once and it was amazingly addictive, even though it was basically a snake clone with a couple of added features -

The author of Sneech is Paul Burkey, who created Foundation :)

Check out Sneech.org for the Sneech homepages, or shoecake.com for Paul's homepages which contain links to his games including Foundation.

There is also the current possibility of Paul, producing Sneech2, although this is currently only likely for PCs :(

Da.

In my opinion, best Amiga games:
- Shoot'em-up: Battle Squadron & Xenon 2 & Project X & Agony
- Action: Turrican 2 & Alien Breed & Chaos Engine & Shadow of the Beast
- Strategy: Dune 2 & Populous 2 & Frontier
- Sport: Microprose Golf & SWOS & Speedball 2
- Action: Parasol Stars & Bubble Bobble & Rainbow Islands
- Platform: Brian the Lion & Virocop & Gods & Super Frog
- Misc: Lemmings & Ports of Call & Sarakon & Hired Guns
- All Cinemaware games: DoC & ICFD 1-2 etc
- Lots of forgotten :)
