The many Dizzy games by Codemasters for the Spectrum/C64/Amstrad. I'd love to see a modern remake of this series. The Megadrive/Genesis version doesn't do the series justice imo.

EDIT I found the 2011 ipad remake, don't like touchscreen controls though.
Of considerably more interest is the "DizzyAGE" engine which has source code and is potentially portable to handhelds.

Hmmm...

I must admit RT really gave SoR a good run for it's money :D


The animation is so choppy. The colors look washed out. And the music is horrible. Frankly I think the only good 2 player beat em up for Snes was Sonic Blast Man 2. Even Final Fight was much better on Sega CD than Snes. The colors were much better. And the only Sega CD feature it was using was the music and the cutscenes.

Since I got into C64 late. Like...maybe 2 years ago late. Dizzy is a really neat series once you get the hang of it. That weird jump takes a while to adjust to but afterwards it's really cool to see what they were able to pull off on that hardware. Same goes for Jet Set Willy.
Do you know where I can find some sailors?

Depends on what you mean by overlooked, for example I feel that Commodore Amiga as a platform is really overlooked in some parts of the world (US, namely). SNES and NES (and maybe Megadrive/Genesis) are all people usually talk about.
So yeah, I recommend wholehearteadly checking out the Amiga gaming library. Turrican 1 & 2 are my favourite games ever, and I did not even own an Amiga!

Gothic 1 and 2 ...Gothic 3 was overshadowed by Morrowind and even though I love Morrowind ...Gothic 2 is just as good
