'Gods', now how awesome is that?
« on: August 16, 2011, 04:35:59 PM »
'Gods' by Renegade from 1991
If you haven't tried it yet you should try and look for clips on YouTube. You will be scouring E-Bay for a copy immediately, it is just that good.

"What makes Gods so special is that it adjust to your playstyle - play a game and do everything wrong and extra lives/health will drop to help you. Fall into a hole you can't get up from and a teleport potion will drop etc etc. - But, if you do well, the enemies will become stronger and stronger and will evade your attacks more often. The plus side of course is that you get more points from killing them as well, so for hi-score hunters there's a lot to come back for.
I don't consider myself an epic player by any means, but I've managed to complete it only using one life...
I find that the graphics style suits the game well - the controls aren't intuitive as such, but it's easy to live with. Sounds are ace and ofc the unforgettable 'Into the Wonderful' intro music is brilliant - one of my favorite tunes ever, whether it be 'normal' or game music.

Agreed. Gods kicks ass. Much better than this fancy 3D God of War crap the kids are playing today.  :lol:

Myth is another decent side-scroller along the same lines, but I haven't booted that one up in quite a while. Not sure how well that ones held up comparatively.

Did Myth (which I remember somewhat) have the funky shop where you could buy loads of magic hammers and potions and health thingies and stuff though?
Oh the satisfaction when you could afford that spear and the potions to triple it.

I think I may need to break out my original Gods disks again....

For me, Gods is the one of the best platform games ever made.
I love the graphics, and I still think it looks great.

Gods is one of those games that I have badly wanted to beat, but even though I've played just about every version there is (the Amiga has the best sounds, the graphics are about the same otherwise) I still haven't completed the game.

I need to give it a serious run through.  Then again, I plan on trying to beat all of the Bard's Tale games!  I don't know anyone who has beaten past the first one.

Bitmap brothers seriously made some awesome games.  Magic Pockets is another I need to beat.  Though last time I tried, the bicycle wouldn't work for some reason, must ahve been doing something wrong...

Anyhow, now I know what I'm doing when I get home!

While i can say the game looks amazing and the music is cool too the controls let it down big time. I hate the way it jumps diagonally. It's really annoying. But i like the way it was made though such as the way it gets easier and harder depending on how well you play :)
Even my cat doesn\'t like me.

I never played it enough to know it adapted to skill - I will have to get it out at some point and give it a blast.

I love this game. My Amiga disks finally bit the dust and will not boot any more. I found a Sega cartridge of Gods on eBay, so I bought a Sega Genesis to play it. Game play is much faster on the Sega but otherwise identical.
Yet another great Bitmap Bros. Game!

I always liked that it was a platformer where you played a big beefy heavy metal looking dude :)

I approve of this thread!

One of the few games that broke my joystick from excess fun and all night level pounding.

If we talk about the same game I played the C64 version a lot and when I bought my A500 I was a little let down by it, thought the gameplay was better on the C64 and it was descent for a C64 game.

That is from memory though from all those years so I should really give it another go :-) . Is it about fighting monsters and gods from the greek mythology (did I spell it correctly?)? If it is that game I loved it on the C64 but didn't give it many tries on the Amiga.
