Re: The games that never got released

Well, there is confirmation that some early development took place There really isn't. No one from Rare has ever come forward and and said anything of the sort - it's all pure conjecture or made up BS. What we do have though is the word of someone who worked at Rare, has spoken to Tim Stamper about...

Re: The games that never got released

The Mire Mare entry currently says it definitely existed. Yes, that's from the obscure web page I mentioned. Unfortunately it's all bull. I'm considering to update it as follows: At the end of Underwurlde, the player can escape through three different exits. Each exit then names a different game in...

Re: The games that never got released

It does make me wonder how many of these games still exist in development form somewhere. I have the theory that somewhere there must be a cassette/microdrive cartdridge with some routines of Mire Mare, sketchs of the characters, maps, etc. as I don't think the game was completelly finished. I thin...

Can't we just class this one as a tie and move on?

Hey people, why are you voting for some Xeno? What's that and what's so special about it? ;)
In my opinion, nothing special about it really; a decent game compared to the average bunch in the list (that I've played).

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with X: vote

Xeno for me. Not played many of the others really. I guess Xenon might have been released too far into the Speccy's life and the majority of us missed it back in the day? Can't say I've ever even fired it up in an emulator. Looking at a YT vid, it does look very polished. EDIT: It was released in '8...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with W: tiebreaker vote

However, disregarding re-reviews of WOTEF (which I think would be unfair as WTSS never had any that I'm aware of): WOTEF: (9.2 + 10) / 2 = 9.6 Still not a fair comparison IMO. Including re-reviews seems harsh. WOTEF gets 9.1 otherwise. Sorry, I think you edited your post while I was writing mine. S...
