MediEvil 2, PlayStation

MediEvil 2 is the sequel to the classic PS1 game, MediEvil, and is the return of the skeleton warrior, Sir Daniel Fortesque. The game is this time set in Victorian England where Sir Dan must combat monsters and animated skeletons, resurrected by a meddling sorcerer who is trying to resurrect Zarok, the bad guy from the first game. Gameplay is mostly identical to MediEvil [one], but with a few tweaks here and there. MediEvil 2 was first published in 2000 and was developed by many of the same people who made the first game, at SCE Cambridge Studio in England.

MediEvil, PlayStation

MediEvil is a classic hack-and-slash action game developed by SCE Cambridge Studio and published by Sony in 1998. In it you play as the resurrected skeleton of Sir Daniel Fortesque, in the kingdom of Gallowmere, who has been inadvertently brought back from his eternal sleep to once again fight the evil sorcerer Zarok (voiced by the late Paul Darrow). As shown in the humorous introductory sequence, Sir Dan’s initial attempt at thwarting Zarok fell flat on its face and this is his shot at redemption.

The Atari 8-bit version of Attack of the Mutant Camels came out simultaneously with the Commodore 64 version, in 1983, and is pretty much the same game, but with a few graphical tweaks.

Albert Odyssey: Legend of Eldean, Sega Saturn

Albert Odyssey: Legend of Eldean was developed exclusively for the Sega Saturn by Sunsoft and first released in 1996 in Japan. A brilliant English language translation, by Working Designs, was released in North America in 1997 (actually the first Albert Odyssey title ever to be translated into English).

Albert Odyssey is a quintessential Japanese turn-based RPG, full of weapons, armour, spells, magic and combat, actually laugh-out-loud, funny humour, and imaginative boss battles and encounters.

Carmageddon: Max Damage, PC

Carmageddon: Max Damage is an updated version of Carmageddon: Reincarnation*, which was originally funded by a Kickstarter campaign and released in 2015. Max Damage was developed by (mostly) the same team who made the original Carmageddon and was first released in 2016, and is basically the same game as Carmageddon: Reincarnation but with better graphics and a few small changes to the game structure. The levels are mostly the same, although there are some new additions and tweaks here and there.

Carmageddon TDR 2000, PC

Also known as “Carmageddon: Total Destruction Racing 2000” or “Carmageddon 3: TDR 2000” in North America, Carmageddon TDR 2000 was not developed by the same team who made the first two Carmageddon games, but an Australian developer called Torus Games. As you might have worked out from the game’s title, it was originally released in the year 2000.

Carmageddon II: Carpocalypse Now, PC

Carmageddon II: Carpocalypse Now is the 1998 sequel to the excellent Carmageddon. Although it was developed by the same team who made the first game (Stainless Software), and although it’s still fun to play to a certain degree, in my opinion it’s not a patch on the original.

Carmageddon, PC

Carmageddon is a notorious vehicular racing/combat game developed by Stainless Software and published by Sales Curve Interactive for MS-DOS PCs in 1997.

It was originally meant to be a game based on the Mad Max series of films. When that didn’t happen the developers then bought the license to the infamous Roger Corman/Paul Bartel film Death Race 2000, but they later decided to drop it and create their own IP, eventually coming up with the title “Carmageddon“.
