:)

 

Well, my thinking is..IF your going to cover Altered Beast and Alien Storm Eswat has to be included.

 

 

I only ever played the Genesis version, loved it, but i never hear the game mentioned anywhere these days, was it that unloved?.

UK adverts for Home Micro versions.

 

Sega couldn't of thought that much of it themselves, as it's not on the 'Ultimate Collection' of Genesis/Mega Drive Games on the PS3...

Ironically, I just bought a CIB copy for the Genesis about a week ago. I might also have the SMS version in my collection, which was closer to the arcade version. 

 

This was a rental only type of game for me growing up. Good, but not great. However, I never beat it, so it would be nice to do so this time around.

ZZap really didn't like it.

 

You used to see a LOT of this in UK Press, Games A-C gave a game praise, so of course Mags n-Z had to slag it.

 

ST Ghouls N Ghosts..Praised (and rightfully so) so of course ST Format have to give it 49% and call it a dreadful conversion.

 

ST Ninja Spirt superb, not so say C+VG.

 

Lynx Rygar praised, until C+VG review it...

Amstrad CPC version given a Retro Stinker Award in this months Minority Report in RetroGamer Magazine on the Amstrad CPC 6128.

 

Described as a deadful conversion, with graphics looking as if a toddler has had a temper tantrum with their Lego.

 

128K version doubled screen and sprite hieght, but writer felt this simply doubled the eyesore rather than improved matters.
