Chaotica Posted May 30, 2004 Share Posted May 30, 2004 Well, the only thing that I lamented about my beloved Miggy 500 was that, while there were 10,000 soccer/european football games, there were barely any fighters, which I loved so much! Picking my fav fighter was tough - I was an MK fanboy back then, and I thought the conversion of MK2 in particular was amazing - it really showed that the Amiga could still hack it. International Karate was perhaps one of the most fun and addictive, games I have ever played on anything. It was a simple yet very, very fun game. And it had all those sound effects borrowed from martial arts movies. Barbarian was also fun because it was so fast and gorey, and the match could be ended at any time with a well aimed decapitation! But my favourite was Gremlin's Shadow Fighter. It simply got everything right - pretty graphics, lovely backgrounds, sounds, funky music, heaps of characters, combos, special moves...even the disk swapping scheme was really great, indicative of professional programming. It showed that the Amiga could handle a Street Fighter game, where (IMO) the two Street Fighter conversions had failed. And I never thought Elfmanis was great...it was so slow, and boring, and the controls were awful! The only thing that saved it was the cutsie pretty graphics. So please post what you think. (Also remember Team 17's Full Contact, which I couldn't fit on the list.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
