Best Falcon game ?

Postby ppera » Sat Oct 18, 2008 11:13 am

Pretty dumb thread name ? :D
Maybe it was already discussed... Anyway, what is the best Falcon game? Here I think on Falcon-only game, not something what works on ST(E) machines. Or at least some adaptation what uses extra Falcon capabilities.
I ask this, because so far did not see anything really good in that matter.

Where there games for my falcon? ;) Anyway the best game I played was called "Plight of the stargazer" I think.. It was a first person rpg. I can't remember if it was only a demo or a finished game.. Anyway it was pretty cool :) Oh.. I forgot Ishar 2 that one was great, but didn't really push the falcon..

games i played most on my falcon would be

Running, Bubble bobble (RG version). Conquest of Elysium.
would love to see the full version of v1.2!
the one i got is a bit buggy..

v2.0-2.3 are not exact the same game.. (easier.. bit too much easier).. while v1.2 was more challenging!

Thanx.

I tried some. Towers 2 (or Plight of the stargazer) looks pretty good and is not too slow. 'Running' tried really hard to make realistic 3D, but result is ugly graphic and too slow motion, gameplay.
I found only pre-preview of 'Crown of Creation' - is it ever finished?

Yes, it was finished! However, a crack does not exist due to the copy protection using DSP code. This is my understanding of the situation anyway.

My choice for the best Falcon games :
Transartica from Silmarils (for the scenario)
Radical Race (for the game-play )
Killing Impact (for the graphism and the sound)
Running (best 3D game)

I agree for Towers 2 but i have know this game later

Towers II is a nice game, even though I played it more on the Jag than on the Falcon.
But the best Falcon game has to be Tautology II from Reservoir Gods... I played it for hours. :)

moonspeeder I would like to spend some time playing, Lasers and Men is nice.

Golden Island was amusingly playable despite the basic gfx.

Black Hole I played early on that was novel!

Otherwise Moonspeeder 2 is less fun, the bonus stages breaks the rhythm imho but technically this new episode is better, shame !

Sorry, I talk of Moon Games, aka MoonSpeeder 2 for me ;)
I prefer MoonSpeeder but I don't know if a cracked version exists because it's a commercial game contrarily to MoonGames that is a DP game.

For me :

"Willie's Adventures" from "New Beat", a sort of Rayman game. However, It's only one level.

Willie's Adventures is also my favourite game. It would be really great if Thomas would finish it!
And to have also FireBee version ... heh ...

Maybe, we can ask Daniel from "New Beat" to release the more developed part.
Together, we have hopefully more luck.

I think the main coder and designer of the Wille is Thomas. At least I saw him coding and doing graphics for Willie. But maybe Daniel did also a lot of coding. I saw Willie almost finished but as Thomas is such perfectionist he wanted to polish it out to be perfect :)

It would be great if we could talk them to finish it!

We have to say that there is not really good games on falcon.
I think Robinson's Requiem cd rom version is the best, and after there is Tower 2, moon speeder...
Maybe Elansar will be soon the best game available on.
