Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death, GameCube

The Nintendo GameCube version of Dredd vs. Death was published by Evolved Games in North America and Sierra in Europe in 2003. It was developed by Rebellion, the owner of the 2000AD brand.

Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death is a first-person shooter that at least tries to make good use of the Judge Dredd license, and to a large extent it succeeds quite well.

Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death, PlayStation 2

Released in 2003 for PC, PlayStation 2, GameCube and XBox, Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death is a first-person shoot ’em up developed by Rebellion and based on the infamous 2000AD comic character of Judge Dredd. And – so far (at the time of writing) – it is really the only Judge Dredd game that does the source material any real justice (pun intended). The game is almost twenty years old now, but it’s still worth playing nowadays.

Mr. Driller Drill Land, GameCube

Developed by Project Driller (an internal, dedicated team within Namco), Mr. Driller Drill Land was released exclusively for the GameCube in Japan in 2002 and is the fifth instalment in the Mr. Driller series. And it is arguably the best game in the series.

Mystic Ark, Super Nintendo

Developed by Produce! and published by Enix in 1995, Mystic Ark was only ever released in Japan for the Super Famicom, although an English fan translation does exist, making the game playable to Western audiences. And it is a very good RPG, well worth playing now.

Mystic Ark has been described by some as “The 7th Saga II“, and while it does share some similarities with The 7th Saga (by having a circular monster radar and also featuring some of the same monsters) it is not really a sequel as it plays quite differently.

Gauntlet, Sega Master System

The Sega Master System conversion of Atari‘s classic arcade game Gauntlet is surprisingly good. For starters: it’s got the fastest fire rate of any of the home versions available, and it plays with a high intensity. This does, however, make the game especially challenging because the health of your heroes does tend to go down rather quickly.

Gauntlet, Atari ST

This 16-bit conversion of the classic arcade game Gauntlet was developed by Atari Games and was first published in October 1987 by Mindscape.

While, graphically, it’s not quite as lush as the original arcade game, it is very close to it and Atari obviously took care with how it looked and played when they translated it to the ST.

Gauntlet, MSX

Another fine 8-bit conversion of the classic arcade game Gauntlet, by Gremlin Graphics and published by US Gold in 1987. The MSX version was created by the same team who did the ZX Spectrum version and therefore is quite similar. Which is not a bad thing as the Speccy conversion is quite excellent.
