Developed by Micromania and published by Flair Software 1994, Dangerous Streets is an infamous fighting game for the Amiga and CD32. Infamous because it is so bad…
Created by Ian Gray and Lee Braine and published by Ocean Software in 1985, A Fistful of Bucks (aka A Fi$tful of Buck$) is a simple, scrolling cowboy shooter with you playing a bounty hunter on the hunt for cash.
Tony Crowther‘s 1985 release, William Wobbler, is somewhat controversial among critics and fans… Some love it; some hate it. Actually, let me re-phrase that: most people hate it… And (rather infamously) the leading Commodore 64 magazine of the time (Newsfield’s Zzap!64) gave it a hard time, and it pretty much sank without a trace.
Another conversion, but a damn good one, and worthy of a place in any Commodore 16 fan’s collection.
Shrunk down to fit into just 16K, Spore is a overhead maze shooter with simple graphics and excellent mechanics. A bit like a simplified version of Gauntlet in some respects, but far more frantic.
Of the three versions of Kokotoni Wilf released by Elite Systems, the Commodore 64 version is arguably the worst.
Compared to the Spectrum original, Amstrad Kokotoni Wilf is pretty ugly. The developers have chosen a dark blue background with green caves, and the odd splash of colour in the (very flickery) sprites and landscape decorations. The graphics are very poor in my opinion.
