What wot?
Montezuma's Revenge is a critics darling, a cult little game, and it also belongs to GH's top 10. It made it in the top 50 for Zzap! #107, too.


What 'what' wot? :wink:
Well, I considered it a bit of a obscure (or odd-ish) title, especially in a list that doesn't contain (for example) Head Over Heels etc, etc... 8)

Given the choice, I'd rather play Montezuma's Revenge over Head Over Heels any day. Mind you, I'd rather have a head cold while listening to Mariah Carey than play Delta.

Yes, tied in with their character "Clumsy Colin". They did another game on the Amiga, can't remember the name, but it was a puzzle game with dominoes on platforms?

You'll notice my list features a few of the games from Zzap's "Diary of a Game" series. I guess i found myself captivated by the development process (games designers were gods then but today many are faceless unsung heroes, apart from a select few!)
...
3. Morpheus
4. Citadel
...

At last! I am not alone. :D

Prof,
The other game was Push Over and certainly wasn`t one! :wink:

The reason I like Action Biker was it was pretty freeform and it was always your fault when you died as you tended to be speeding!

There is also an updated 64 version with better graphics Will dig it out and mail it to anyone who wants it (when I find it that is)

:)

I presume you mean Jon Wells' Action Biker 99? Very cool.
And thanks for the name of the Amiga game Mort!

Paradroid - surely one of the greatest games of all time (one i would dearly love to see updated for today's systems).
I love it to. Just got myself a C64 DTV to play it. Anyway, this is very interesting too: http://www.jpct.net/paradroidz
