C64

Format specific babbling. From Speccy to anything that's not the Speccy but they're probably not as good but we'll live, I guess.

I remember reading reviews in regard to Raid on Moscow (with very unrepresentative screenshots) and having no clue as to what type of game it actually was. That probably wasn't a too uncommon experience for me. I think half the fun of reading magazines back in the day was making up my own interpretation of how the game actually played. I really should watch a youtube of Staff of Karnath one day.

Another game me and my brother enjoyed was Druid, having the other player control the seemingly mindless Golem was pretty cool. Darn hard though.

I ***love*** Druid.
I only found out in recent years that the guy who made it was really young at the time he made it.
Mid to late teens?

He released a reboot 2 or 3 years ago, but was nothing like the original.

I'm sure I played this on the Speccy in my search for a good Gauntlet clone!

I've often thought about remaking Druid - I loved it on the CPC. Druid 2: Enlightenment was pants though.
I came. I saw. I Played.

I used to badger the "Ovines" on my blog when they once mentioned it as a possible remake target.
Alas I think we've lost 'em to the appstores now.

Yeah, played Druid 2 for about 20 minutes - it was more complex which is exactly NOT
what I was looking for in a sequel.

What is it with these 'arcade' versions on the C64? Two more:

Both of those look and sound cool - much better than the versions produced BITD.

I watched through parts of the Ghosts n Goblins one - that's really close to the arcade original.
God knows how you'd manage that.
