As much as I love the "Fantastic Voyage" game for the 2600, there is a more faithful game to the movie.

 

The Amiga release of "Fantastic Voyage" looks amazing. Royalties aside, is it technically possible? I realize that most ports to the Jaguar originated as Atari ST releases. I would buy a Jaguar port if it were offered. It would have to be on cartridge though as I can never find a working Jaguar CD drive, much less at a reasonable price.

But we already have an amazing port of Xenon 2! It's so much prettier. :)

Ah, Xenon 2...
A substandard shooter which has a baffling amount of fans.

Not the same orientation as Xenon 2. I'm a fan and I can't argue with that logic. But it was on older systems like MS so it can't be compared to Darius, Gradius, Sturmwind and all that sort of Jazz.

I hope FV is available for CD32, looks pretty good..

Great sounds and music!  Looks like they took the plot from Innerspace or whatever that Dennis Quaid movie was.

 

The only other gripe is that it looks like your ship it too close to the leading edge of the screen, making it more "cheap death" prone than if it were balanced back a little further.

I remember playing this on the Amiga! Its a fun shooter with great graphics and sound. Im not sure if it could be ported easily to the Jaguar, though. I remember reading elsewhere that the Amigas custom chipset makes it difficult to port games to the Jaguar.

I've died alot of cheap deaths in shooters. I'm use to it. But if you don't like cheap deaths then steer clear of the 3 shooters Mythicon released for the 2600. Plus which, they're not even good looking, or sounding, or playing. "Fantastic Voyage" looks and sounds great, and I want to play it.  ;-)

I was afraid of something like that. Of course, there's always the version released for the ZX Spectrum.  ;-)

You could always go play with RAPTOR or rB+ and make your own masterpiece :)
