LactobacillusPrime posted a video in LactobacillusPrime (Marks Shmup Videos)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'...
LactobacillusPrime posted a video in STG VideosI play the game Freedom Fighters on the Odyssey2 (Odyssey 3 command centre) aka Videopac+ so it features a fancy backdrop but you do need the special + variant of the game cart to display that backdrop. It doesn't add anything to the game apart from a nice backdrop and can actually be a little distracting obscuring the little space mines that are homing in on your spaceship. I used to pretend my spaceship was a Viper and I was fighting Cylon battlestars and the space mines were in fact Cylon fighters so yeah a total BattleStar Galactica game for you. Game audio drowns out my voice a little too much - so still need to fiddle with sound setting s more. Enjoy.
LactobacillusPrime posted a video in STG VideosIn this video I check out a ZX Spectrum port of a Videopac/Odyssey 2 game called Attack of the Timelord / Terrahawks. It's a fun shooter that I demonstrated a while ago in one of my videos. Only just discovered that a Spectrum port exists. You can find more information about it here: http://www.indieretronews.com/2014/07/terrahawks-videopac-homebrew-release.html
