Defender of the Crown and Treasure Island Dizzy Arrive on the Jaguar!

Recommended Posts

Just purchased both and looking forward to them arriving in the UK - will be a nice Christmas present to myself - thought i would get them while you still have plenty in stock as I know people are still chasing 'Another World' after the limited run (400 in total I think) that was done on that one by RGC... So anyone on the fence about buying these I would recommend getting them as you will constantly read on here about people chasing after copies of Another World, and I think Defender of the Crown in particular might prove similar once they are all gone... You can pop the commission money in my paypal account Albert for the 'scared' surge of buying you may now see lol

AtariAge is proud to announce that Defender of the Crown and Treasure Island Dizzy are coming to the Atari Jaguar! Both of these chart-topping classic games are now available to pre-order in the AtariAge Store. Each game includes a high-quality, professionally printed box, manual and label, and each is being released in limited quantities (300 copies for Defender of the Crown and 250 for Treasure Island Dizzy).

 

Defender of the Crown without load times.. yes please!

Me too! I'm looking forward to the new Dizzy games. Hopefully they will have the save/load function.

It isn't really needed the other games in the series have lives.

Has anyone been able to beat Defender of The Crown on Jaguar?

 

I lost a battle with 24 soldiers vs. 2 soldiers for opponent.

 

Another battle I had 20 people vs. 0 and I lost 1 soldier in the battle.

A Saxon attached my home castle without even having an adjacent piece of land. Something is wrong with this version of the game.

No, they do that.

That is a feature of all versions of the game.

Johnny accidently took a plunge down the cliffside, not the game's fault.

Is Jaguar Defender of the Crown based on Amiga or Atari ST of the game?

 

How does one win at joust?

 

Raid (sword fight), I win, but it's slow, perhaps there is a faster method? I block, then wait for the enemy to raise their non-sword hand twice then I strike and then go back to block. Repeat until you win. The movement of the swordsmen left and right is so slow, but perhaps that is how it is on the original platform this was written for as well.

The ST version. You unseat the other rider without killing his horse.

Not in several hundred hours testing, no.

 

I'd suspect you have one of the following.

 

1) dirty contacts on the cart

2) dirty contacts on the jag

3) a bad cart

 

Give it a clean and see if it happens again, if it does PM Albert.

Played about DotC around 50 times and only got that screen once.

 

Beat game with all 4 Saxons. Rules are slightly different than C64 version which is what I was use to, given that the game is still fun. I don't think I'll ever figure out joust in this version, but no matter, one can win without that.

It took a while to work out joust, but I'm about 50% victory now :)

 

Winning is a lot easier if you start with 4095 Gold ;)

I had an interesting one today. My army lost all soldiers while trying to take some land, I attacked the open land from another Saxon's castle. So anyway, my army returned back to that Saxon castle, not my home castle. From there I tried to return home but could not move due having zero soldiers, then I tried to transfer but not being at my home castle I could not transfer.

Game is very good even if it has a blemish or two. Gives the game character :) For $70 its well worth the purchase price.

I had a fun time beating the Dizzy game. The first time I played I accidentally saved over my save state so I had to start over, but then I was a lot quicker. There was one hidden gold coin that was in a place where I really didn't expect to be able to go.

 

I was happy to see in the ad that there are plans to make the other Dizzy games. I'll probably try to buy each of them as they come out. I'd love to see someone do a remake of Fantastic Dizzy someday after all these ST ports are released.

 

I would also love to see more platformers on the Jaguar since it only got 5 official ones. Mr. Nutz 2 would be another computer exclusive title that would be great to see ported.

Being an extreme Dizzy nut, I'd LOVE to play this and even do a review video.. but sadly no Jaguar
