A newsletter I use to get called APE (Atari Power Entertainment by Clinton Smith) mentioned that Micropose was going to release Gunship 2000 for the Jaguar. Does anybody know what happened to this game? Are there any screen shots or video of it?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Tinman?, do you mean Tinhead?, the port of the Megadrive platformer of the same name. Never heard of Tinman.

actually you are correct,thank you :cool: Tinhead was last seen by Jetboot Jack a member on here. It was rumored to have been put into a storage locker at one of their facilities,i think overseas office. I think Jetboot saw it on a running alpine......I would love to see the Tinhead platformer on the Jaguar :cool:

Jetboot Jack told me the same thing, 3 or 4 years ago.

I'm pretty sure Tin Head came to be known as "Metal Head" and was released on the 32X...

Tinhead was correct name,i dont think it was going to be changed to Metalhead cause it was a direct port i believe...,but anything is possible i suppose buddy.

considering how choppy metal head was on the weaker 32x, I'd have love to have seen the jag version. Though, maybe Iron Soldier (which spanks metal head two times to sunday,) scared off jag tin head. I mean, why have tin, when you can have hot Iron?

"At Microprose UK we ported one of our Genesis games, "Tin Head" a platformer, to the 68K in the Jag in a couple of weeks - obviously it looked, sounded and played just like the Gensis game....

The Jag had some lovelly hardware bugs, but was a reasonable platform. Totally un marketed and therefore impossible for a mainstream publisher to get involved in as unit sales were apalling for the games..."

I wish they had ported Gunship 2000. That game was great.
