Trivia for the game Burnin' Rubber

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 18:24:50 +0000

Cartridge versions

The cartridge for this game was bundled with every Amstrad CPC+ computer and Amstrad GX4000 console. Various versions do exist. The computer versions would prompt the user to either run the game or load Amstrad BASIC instead. The cartridges for consoles lacked the BASIC option. -- Neville (2604)



Trivia for the game Air Combat 22

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 18:24:50 +0000

Naming

This game was named Air Combat '22' because it ran on Namco's Super System '22' hardware. -- S Olafsson (7080)

Trivia for the game Sands of Fire

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 18:24:49 +0000

This was one of the first MS-DOS games with true digitized sound - recording actual shell casings, for example. -- Bill Hause (3)



Trivia for the game Cook for Cube

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 09:03:15 +0000

Inspiration

This game was made for the 2016 CGI Jam, in which participants were given 48 hours to make a game based on one of the concepts discussed in CoolGames Inc., a comedy podcast in which the hosts discuss far-fetched ideas for hypothetical video games. -- Harmony♥ (15364)



Trivia for the game CD Compendium: Summer Challenge / Winter Challenge

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 02:09:39 +0000

Copy protection

For this compilation the copy protection was "removed". Each of the games provides a .com file of the same name as the .exe file which will disable the copy protection at runtime - so if you start the .exe file directly you will still get the copy protection screens. Starting the games as intended from the CD's root directory will use the correct version of course. -- Iggi (10538)



Trivia for the game Remember Tomorrow

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 02:07:59 +0000

Porting

The game was much later ported to Windows by one of the developers and includes support for higher resolutions, new battle graphics and a number of bug fixes and balance tweaks. There's also Polaris Sector by the same people - a new and modernized remake of Remember Tomorrow that came out in 2016. -- Virgil (6952)



Trivia for the game Landfall

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 02:07:59 +0000

Awards

Landfall was awarded first place (goud) at the 2017 Dutch VR Awards in the category: Games en Apps voor VR en AR Headsets (Games and Apps for VR and AR headsets). -- vedder (20754)



Trivia for the game ICBM Attack

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 02:07:59 +0000

Rarity

ICBM is one of the rarer games released for the Bally Astrocade with only about 100 cartridges being made. In addition to there being few copies of the game it also requires a special analog joystick which was shipped with the game. Since release the joystick has become even rarer than the cartridges with only one known instance of someone owning it. Therefore almost nobody has been able to play the game on real hardware. It is however possible to play the game on the MAME emulator. -- Kabushi (172752)



Trivia for the game Enhanced European Terrain

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 02:07:58 +0000

Cover photo

The cover photo shows a red Super Cub with L21 windows (longer, extending over the rear seat, for better outside views), while the in-game aircraft is in White/Blue livery and is also using the much shorter, standard rounded passenger windows. -- Rwolf (12498)



Trivia for the game The Secret Agent

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 02:07:58 +0000

Sales

The author had three games released through Stainless Software. Together they sold a total of 39 copies. -- Kabushi (172752)
