Alpine Games final run

Recommended Posts

 

Thanks for the kind words thats very nice !

We were a bit worried about all this shipping as this

was almost too much for us to handle but it went really smooth

till now, also a big thanks to the Lynx community, no

complains or anything about packages not yet deliverd or anything,

everyone was patient, thanks !

 

Actually we got a lot of motivation to probably do one more Lynx game

whats the game you guys would like to see the most

 

- a "Lotus" style game

- something "Giana Sisters"

- a "Flashback" thing

- some easy to pick up "Dragons Lair" type

 

 

All of the above!!!!!! :thumbsup:

How about a nice RPG type game? Like original Legend of Zelda, Dragon Quest/Warrior, and Final Fantasy?

That's everybody's dream! It's a great time to be collecting for Lynx!

Yes, an RPG in the style of Zelda would be fantastic.

 

Of the choices given I think a "Lotus" style game would be favourite followed by a "Giana Sisters" style game.

 

One question though:

 

Could you turn one of the demos on the Bonus Cart into a full game?

 

Perhaps turn the karate game into "Way of the Exploding Fist" or "IK+"

 

Or make the F1 Racing demo into something like "Geoff Crammonds Grand Prix".

 

Or expand the Nebulus demo into the full Nebulus?

All of the options Duranik gave sound great.

 

The Lotus style game would be cool, but I always felt the Lynx was fairly well catered for with racers: Checkered Flag, Road Blasters, Stun Runner, Hard Drivin', Road Riot 4WD and to a degree Hydra, Super Off Road, and Championship Rally. There are platformers, but none of them really capture that 90s "Giana" spirit.

Thanks for the comments und suggestions, these are very interesting to read.

The games in the list are there for the reason the Lynx could handle them very well

and the engine/programming/tools needed can be done in a reasonable timeframe or we

could even reuse some code from the past.


I expected the RPG bandwagon as the Lynx certainly lacks in these genre. Unfortunately

we are not really into these type of games, a zelda-ish game maybe as this is more

an action/adventure type of thing but a "JRPG" style of game, hmm no, never got into these.

Thinking about it you're quite right Trew, the Lynx has got it's fair share of racing games.

 

A "Giana Sisters" game would be very welcome.

Then it's settled... bring on Zelda on the Lynx, haha! :cool:

Show Nintendo what they should have done in 1989 and do Super Mario :)

Failing that Salamander.

I agree with a few others that there are enough driving type games although Outrun is my favorite.

Any chances of purchasing copies of the Bonus cart for those of us who did not get one?

I'm thinking of selling my Original style bonus cart before the next run of new carts to recover some of the cost of my lynx spend of recent times. Not decided on a price but if there's interest from anyone PM me with an offer. Itll go for more than the cost of the re run.

Plays California Games during the Winter and Alpine Games during the Summer... makes sense :D

 

Definitely interested in whatever else Duranik plans on creating!

This is just for a little brain storming, no promises if we ever find the

time to do the actual thing. Now all i want to hear is LOTUS.

 

 

Ummm, LOTUS! ;-)

 

Seriously, that would be cool. Flashback thing would be okay, but another good racing/driving game would be great.

They are kind of similar, but maybe something more along the lines of Rolling Thunder instead of Flashback? Just a thought. Thanks for the great work on Alpine Games!!

Got my Alpine Games today. Looks really great.

 

About the new game, I'd agree that something like Rolling Thunder would be fantastic. Wasn't Rolling Thunder actually planned but never done for the Lynx?

A Lotus style game with Com-Lynx, excellent idea! :)

 

Or a platform game like Giana Sisters would be nice too, (even with Com-Lynx mode; what the Wii-U can, the Lynx can do better ;)).

Also, an RPG is already well in development anyway.^^

 

If I may suggest something not on your list:

 

The Lynx is lacking a game such as Contra/Probotector, Turrican or Rolling Thunder!

Should be something the hardware is well capable of too; big bosses, lots of enemies, explosions.

Also Space Harrier... have been working on a concept for that a while now.^^

 

From the suggestions you listed I would probably pick Flashback.

Lotus/Outrun would be cool too. It would need to have nice music playing though.

Giana sisters I find much inferior to SMB, but a good jump'n Run would be welcome.

Dragon's Lair I do not care about much.
