26 - I-War
Download or listen to the podcast episode at atarijaguargamebygame.libsyn.com/26-i-war
Only a weapons-laden antivirus craft can save the I-Way, and only you can drive it. This heavy-tank-sized episode will give you all you need to know to defeat Override, including the little-known history of the game I-War, a complete catalog of weapons, a list of enemies and hazards, and tons of tips. We find a close connection between I-War and Defender 2000, dig deep for hidden messages, and solve the mystery of the missing level music.
All this plus a dramatic re-enactment and a yelling Klingon are available on this side of the podcast Datalink.
Stick around for feedback from Derek, Randal, Chad, Björn, Arethius, Roberth, and Chris, plus Jaguar stories from LehtMojo and Ben! Also, a Retro League eulogy.
