Unofficial game "sequels" made by crackers

Anyone remember the unofficial game "sequels" and "hacked versions" made by various crackers that used to float around? I don't mean trained versions, I mean where the actual level or sprite data etc. has been changed.

Eg.
GridStart 2 by Motley Crew/Amigaforce (still looking for this one) and GridStart 3 by someone else (non-TOSEC but available from my site)
Stunt Car Racer TNG

I'm very interested in these kinds of games, they are usually better than the original...but they seem rather neglected as a group. Most of these kinds of games don't seem to be mentioned on HOL or available in TOSEC.

These kinds of games are more readily available for the C64. (Eg. the C64 there was also 720 Degrees Part 2 and various Giana Sisters sequels, these are on GameBase 64).

I was wondering are there any other "hacked" games like these, there must be at least a few more? and where they could be obtained? I'm willing to host them at my site, they seem to be in dire need of preservation.

heh.. I did a "special" version of the very old platform game "robbeary" (which I think was made by the same guy who did XR35).

My mother-in-law used to love playing it, and it seemed like a good idea at the time to replace the main characters idle animations (tapping foot, spinning bow tie) with him tossing off

Suffice to say, this was a classic moment the first time she witnessed this behaviour from the cute teddy bear !!

Incidentally, it would be nice to get a copy of that game again for nostalgic reasons if anyone has it !!!

oh yeah I love to play robbeary back then, it was a nice little game. Guess my old disk is corrupted, but it did play fine.

Roll eyes (sarcastic)

Want a list?

"Shanghai II" (never existed)
"Wings of Fury II" (had "night design")

and this ... (but this is no sequel, just a very naughty hack )

"Unilyte" (what a fraud, here is the original!)

The link to the fraud sends me to a page which I don't have permissions to view.

Now ... that's a VERY special case.

This game is nothing else but Blizzard, a pretty rare game by Crysys Software, published in 1988.

These weirdos took the shareware version of Blizzard, published by Ottfried Schmidt (NOT Crysys, they were only involved in distributing the commercial version), crammed in another title screen (see below!!!) and voilà! - Unilyte was born!

I was even about to put this into HOL (!) (plain to see because of the DBS), but recollected again for doing some in-depth investigation.

An effrontery at its most blatant occurrence!
Taking the hard work from others and even credit it to people with invented names born in some sceners' dull minds!

Not amiga related, but I remember a game on the bbc micro called F**K which was a variation on FRAK with naked chicks for sprites and the work FRAK changed to F**K

Amused me when i was a kid
