Thanks to all for replying.
Lomax looks nice, but if it's similar to Flink I won't like it. Too slow. And it's on a console. But it'll probably be much better than Flink so.. what the nicest PSX emulator.... ?
You've got it man! Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee looks like the thing!
Skull Monkeys sounds interesting although I couldn't find any screenshots. And it's on PSX. On the pc there's the older Neverhood, related to Skull Monkeys.
I don't like 3D games !!!! 3D platformers = sacrilege
Aaargh, handheld consoles, crappy controllers, tiny screen. Definitively not for the 'explory' type platformers... The PS2 / Gamecube games look great, and probably play great too, but I really don't want to risk entering the console area 'cause I'll get sucked into never-ending gaming again, and I don't have the time for that anymore...
I'm going to try locating Pitfall:The Mayhan Adventure
and Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
for starters. Let's hope they'll run fine on XP cause I've had my fair share of 'degrading' on the Amiga. Wouldn't want to do that all over again...
