Fire up your Supa Dupa Podcast Playa and check out Cannon Fodder, episode 23, which has now been deployed (using a choppa, of course).  Link is in the show notes.

 

Awesome.  Flip-Out is next.

 

Thoughts on Flip-Out: 

 

Very simply, playing Flip-out you have to juggle multiple tiles while the curiousity of the aliens causes them to get out on the playboard and weigh down tiles and so forth.

 

This is as enjoyable as trying to get things done around your house, or even saying typing this message, and a cat being right in your business either on your keyboard or mouse, which my cat currently is.  :P

 

Yep, about that fun.   So good, kinda cute, even frustrating.  My sales pitch for Flip-Out if I made a commercial:

"If you know how to work around cats you'll mildly enjoy this game. "

The tiles have finally landed in their correct spots, meaning the FlipOut! episode is available for your listening pleasure (or consternation, depending on how you feel about FlipOut!).  I was honored and fortunate to have the game's designer Conrad Barski answer a lot of questions about the game, and fill the gaps in FlipOut!'s development story.  Check it out through the link at the top of the show notes, or in iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, or your favorite RSS-based podcast player.

The next episode covers the top-down racing game Power Drive Rally.  Memories?  Opinions?  Post here, or e-mail jaguar@gamebygamepodcast.com.  Above all, though, thank you for listening!

PDR is the last Jaguar game I bought before selling my Jag collection to fund a PS3 for my kids.

Great new episode Shinto! I've never really harboured an interest in FlipOut! before, but I might have to get a copy now!

Sent you a few UK based odds and sods as well as a chat with the coder (not my chat either ).

You probably had most of it already, but i know what a time sink research can be, so hope it helps.

Power Drive Rally - 

 

Simply put, "Hot Wheels for the Jaguar".

 

Cute game, sometimes gets fun figuring the direction in relation to which way the car is turned.  Other than that, pretty solid game.

 

Naturally I liked to try to off road in what little bit I played this.
