Atari ST Games Ported to the Jaguar

Recommended Posts

I pumped quite a few quarters in "Alien Syndrome" arcade version back in the late 80s... Great memories with that one.

Great, finally a Tennis game - but why not Great Courts, which is possibly the best and most playable game of Tennis on the ST, according to many incl. myself?!

Alien Syndrome is alternating turns.

Passing Shot can be vs ;)

I agree. Great Courts 2 is even better and very close to "Jimmy Connors Pro Tennis" on the SNES, which was considered one of the best console tennis games of the 16 bit era alongside Final Match Tennis. I am surprised the ST got that kind of quality sport games. Definetely worth a port.

IMO Tennis cup was better, never played the second part.

That one has nice graphics too but I think gameplay looks a bit too slow and the low point of view is not my favourite. ;-) Also the speed of the shots/power of strokes look always the same, I miss the dynamics.

Great Courts 2 really looks ace, excellent tennis gameplay.

 

 

THis looks way better than the other tennis game. Have never played either.

Would a port of one of the rare good strategy games on the ST be worth considering? I am thinking of Utopia or Populous maybe (I do know about and own Defender ot Crown of course). There is not even a decent port of chess available on the Jag or is it?
