"Red Heat" was awful and had very little play value. Ocean could do much better.

I got it on a compilation alongside my brand new CPC as a child when my parents bought it for me.
It was the first game I launched on it I think (I had played CPC at my cousin's before though) and my father asked to give it a try.
He tried it once for 2 minutes, put the joystick down and I think it was the only time in his entire life he played a video game.
Imagine that, having only "Red Heat" as an experience of the whole medium  :biggrin:

I see well substantiated lawsuit in that story... I wonder if Infogrames is still liable, because last time I heard they owned Ocean.

I remember a small game for the C64, named "DOG", but in this case you don't pee on things... :biggrin: :p

Guys,
Any idea how to get out of the starting position in the second level of Minekart Madness? :)

edit: ooh, I figured it out - it's all in the jump timing!

best regards,

Yes, the "jump timing" is basic in this game! ;)

Another Genesis / Mega Drive hack worth mentioning, Mega Man World Fixer Upper:



Adds a few tweaks to the best (and only) official Mega Man game for the system:

- Enemy invulnerability time has been all but eliminated.  This means that enemies can take damage more frequently and reliably.  No more ?missed? shots!

- The default weapon (the Buster) has been sped up to match its 8-bit counterpart.  Watch those lemons fly!

- The default weapon and some boss weapons can be fired more rapidly!  Hammer that ?fire? button and launch waves of projectiles!

- Rockman pulls his Buster back a little sooner after firing!  This? only affects a handful of weapons and the change isn?t that big, but hey!  It might help!

@Neville: I patched the files (Mega Man - The Wily Wars (Europe): DCF6E8B2 and Mega Man - The Wily Wars (Retro-bit): 831020B) to add the related support, but, in both cases, I noticed a controller "fatal bug". In few words, during the menu the controller inputs work fine, but during the gameplay they doesn't work...

I chose to patch the (USA) (Genesis Mini) version, asuming it would be the most up to date. It seems to work fine under Fusion and Mednafen, but it hangs while loading under BlastEm.



If you think the patch is buggy or incomplete it may be better to wait until it's updated again.

The Fixer Upper patch worked fine for me, on the original Euro ROM. I also combined it with other patches (FBN can't do that easily, right? It'd need an entry for each patch combination).
