Tried Bubble Bobble but skipped to Bow Islands

@Graham - Ooh Qwak looks nice as does Arabian, Naughty Ones and Donk :bowdown

Will pass on Brian the lion, just broke up with a Bryan and don't feel like seeing the name all the time :evilgrin

Just search http://hol.abime.net/hol_search.php?N_ref_category=16 will show you all the 650 platformers on HOL :D

You may also try http://www.back2roots.org/Games/ADF-Games/ (Floppy) http://www.back2roots.org/Games/HD-Games/ (Hard Drive) for any games, unfortunately you cant select a platform category :sad just look at the screenshots 'n' select what you like. Some you will recognise 'n' some you wont, but the screenshots will give you an idea of what you're getting ;)

Happy hunting :)

It's different, but not shit.

Reynolds 14 October 2008 13:05

I've just checked the screenshots of Strider II. It's kinda funny, but interesting what's happening with the chick between the last 3rd and 2nd pics, as on the first she's quite "ready for action, but on the second she felt into unconsciousness... :D
