5 superb classics to pick from for this round...

Download the games from Fandal or atarionline.pl - links to atarimania below with info.


Comments from memory so don't hold me to them!


Poll closes after the current round (Sunday 30th)



Note fandal has a PAL fixed version re the falling thingies. Need the version with the title screen animations (the other is an earlier version / easier)




Still the odd bug where you have to sacrifice a man to complete a stage (probably ok on original cart). Even better music than Drol?!!!



Crystal Castles XE

So what did they do to this for the re-release? Let's find out!




Played back in season 2! I've always wanted to get further in this one. I think there is a 'fixed' version here on atariage - original might have had a bug stopping it being completed or something?




Impressive game but gets tough to complete more than a few rounds even for the most adept players. Nah, this has even better music than Gyruss?!!

After missing the last two rounds with my knackered back, I'm hopeful that I'll be able to sit and play for a while this round.

It is hard to decide. Millipede and Gyruss are one of my favourites. Both played zillion times, especially Millepede...so these are nice but not enough challenging. I remember the round when Drol was played but I completely missed that round. So maybe Drol or Spelunker, both games basicly unknown for me...will see:-)

Tough choice, Gyruss has great music and smooth gameplay indeed, but Spelunker is much more of a challenge with ever changing scenery and new challenges the deeper you descend into the mine.

It looks like Spelunker will win a landslide victory!
