It is weird to think that "back in the old day" a 200MHz proccessor was good (because it was. . . . ??!!) but now you think, that couldn't even cope with Microsof Word!!

No one is correct. I'll put you out of your misery.

The game is Gauntlet II. It was avaiable on the ZX Spectrum 128K.

Have a look at some of those Spectrum Games. <<Those bring back so many good memorys.

Just choose a game and play. There's some classics there. Robocop, Top Gun, Dizzy & many more.

I was going to say ZX Spectrum!

I was having a nostalgic look at some old Amiga games. Some games still look good and the sound the Amiga could produce was great. I am ashamed to say at the time I copied games with friends which of course completely ruined the experience so never again. Its surprising how technology has advanced especially the floppy to the DVD ROM.

Damn u Liono, i was just about to post the answer (granted I came to the post very late)

I LOVED that game!!!

My fave title on the Amiga was Escape From Colditz. Shadow of the Beast trilogy was great too but mind numbingly difficult. My bro bought F-29 Retaliator but I never checked it out. I was too busy trying to get my last man out of Colditz. Never did. Sad

Jet Set Willy 2 was a great game too

no notion of "Save Games", just a limited amount of lives and over 100 rooms to get through... incredibly difficult.

I forgot Syndicate! What a game for the Amiga that was. A pioneering title for the isometric platform as well.

The game is called

SHADOW OF THE BEAST II

Jamie4590 Guest

Correct! Thumbs Up!

I thought that would be hard. Am I right to assume you played it?

Yes

Many moons ago on the Amiga 1200.

Easily among the few ground breakers of its time. It really showed off the sound and graphics capabilities of the Amiga. It was stupidly hard though and without using the 'ten pints' cheat code it would be impossible to complete. Interestingly the company that created it were called Psygnosis and were well known for making leading games topped off with Lemmings that an individual designer dreamed up one night. No help from a microdot I'm sure! Psygnosis was bought by Sony in the late 90's and their programmers helped launch the Playstation with games such as Wipeout. As a programmer it must be incredible to see first hand the advancement in gaming over the last 20 years.

IMO I think if it wasn't for the following

ZX Spectrum
Commondore 64

We wouldn't have the games we have today. If I remeber correctly the Spectrum was the first home computer (if you can call it that) that you could programe and make your own stuff.

I remember staying up for hours on end and writing 100's of line of code. At the end it flashed my name in a couple of colours. It was wicked at the time.

For me the 80's & 90's where happy days for computing. Long live the classic games

I loved doing that with the GOTO commands! You could loop it so the text would fill the screen. I hope I never see another syntax error message or guru meditation crash again!

I still have my old Atrari 800 and Commondore 64 in my basement, technology has
sure come alone way since then. I also remember playing with BASIC.

You could run a house with the Javascript platform, literately. Many home appliances use Javascript technology in their chipsets. A web page isn't a web page unless it has a splash of Java.

I used to love playing with the Workbench 1.3 robotic voice. Who ever used that and DIDN'T make it say rude words and then speed it up. Great days! Very Happy
