BadLands

BadLands

Commodore Amiga - Released - 1990

Badlands continued the Super Sprint lineage, but moved the game into a futuristic post-apocalyptic setting. The races consist of 3 souped-up cars toughing it out over 4 laps on one of the 8 tracks, which are viewed from above. Two human players can take part, but only the winner continues without using up credits, so you will only see the early races in two-player mode. You are armed with guns, which can be used to slow opposing cars. During the races spanners can be collected, which are then cashed in for upgraded turbos, improved weaponry and engine upgrades. Hazards on the later tracks...

Cyberball

Cyberball

Commodore Amiga - Released - 1990

After American Football players started cheating by using bionic parts, the game was forced to change its rules. By 2022, the game was played not by humans, but two teams of seven robots. To spice things up, the usual pig skin ball was replaced with a 350 pound bomb. Cyberball brings this fast and furious action to life. Gameplay is essentially the same as the real sport, although the 'downs' are replaced by the bomb's heat gradually increasing towards 'critical'. After this it will explode and possession will be swapped. This is prevented when you cross the 50-yard line, lose possession or...

Much like in Xevious, action takes place on two planes, both in the sky (where the dragon is flying) and on the ground.

Enemies exist both in the air and on the ground, and some can fly up from the ground to the sky. Players can pick up power-ups, or upgrades, that will help them in their fight. Upgrades...

Hard Drivin' II: Drive Harder

Hard Drivin' II: Drive Harder

Commodore Amiga - Released - 1991

Hard Drivin' II is a Racing game, developed by Tengen and published by Domark, which was released in 1991. Not to be confused with me coin-op sequel Race Drivin, Hard Drivin II is a revision of the original simulator that’s never appeared in the arcades. At first sight it looks almost exactly the same as HD1. Select the first track from the menu, and you’re plonked into the seat of a Ferrari F40, which actually looks more like a Lada, so you’ll have to use your imagination a bit. The track looks strangely familiar, until you realise that it actually is the same as the original HD1 track....
