  1. This time no game character but a game that has been ported many times. It is amazing to see that some ports even copy the handwritten Williams by 'handwriting' their own or the company name. Then there's the explosions that are all very similar. The game screen layout including the radar - which does not really seem to work properly in the c64 version I got - is very very similar for quite a number of the ports. The two Odyssey2 games that flash in between somewhere don't really belong but do resemble the gameplay just a tad. But I had it connected so I thought ...'what the hell'...

  3. Lloyd Alpha (α ROID) is a great little game produced by Pony Canyon in 1986. In it you have to destroy the evil forces of the Barugosu and repair the main computer. Well that is as elaborate as the background story of this shooter is going to get. In my little gameplay (I didn't really know how to play this game) I didn't go into the holes (craters) that appear on the surface. And you are supposed to do so. Fly into those and the game turns into a little fighting game where you have to hit, kick, jump around to battle against those meanies. So there's more to this game than meets the eye. Check it out for yourself. Here's a little clip of a guy who actually knows how to play this game and it shows the subterranean battling of the robots http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQL_fWcT0Pc
  4. A very nice shmup published by Faster Than Light on the Spectrum (also ported to the Amstrad CPC and C64 home computers) in 1986. Thanks to Mat Howlett for pointing this game out to me.
