Chaos Engine / Speedball 2 remakes (?) cheap on Steam now
« on: June 23, 2014, 06:35:22 PM »
Exactly what the title says. Both in a pack for 3 EUR. Not sure how good the remakes are, but for that amount it should provide plenty of entertainment.

Apparently straight ports? Oh well. PC/Mac/Linux compatible btw.

I would be happy if there was one for my iPad. It was very good game and I still have the original for my Amiga 500.

Playing Chaos Engine or Speedball on a touch screen? That sounds like a really stupid idea.

Touchscreens are one of the worst modes of input for games, unless it's Angry Birds or some other stupid bird related game.

Don't waste your money. I have played Speedball 2 the remake and it is rubbish. All they did was modernise the graphics and change nothing else. All this did for me was highlight how old and dated the game is. Stick with the original - it's better.

UFO on my iPad is better than it was on my Amiga 1200.

I like Chaos Engine, so since it's so cheap ill buy it, but to be honest I probably will play it more often on my real Amigas.

But no Steam Linux version... :/

I bought ChaosEngine on Steam in a previous deal and although you can now play online with one friend, nothing else was updated (except a gfx scaler to adapt to big screen) !

Yeah, as much as I want to support the "Old School" guys, these aren't that great.  I did get a kick out of the new Alien Breeds though and worms never fails to satisfy...
