Arrow 3D

I am curious: which 3D Quake/ Doom game on the Amiga do you like? I have heard about games like Alien Breed 3D, Gnoom, Fearless but do not know how good/bad they are.

The only 3D game I have ever played on my A500 is Death Mask by Apache in 1995 which was nothing to write home about. I liked the title-tune, though.

Alien Breed 3D 1/2 - Number one was kick ass. Number Two was better
Gloom 1/2/3/4 - Number 1 and 2 were kick ass. Numbers 3 and 4 sucked
Citadel - This was a great game in my opinion. Made to run on a 1mb A500
Quake - The best first person game I've seen on the Amiga (PC Port)
Heretic 1/2 - Both pretty good (PC Ports)
Hexen - I didn't get into it much but still nice (PC Port)
Doom - Like the PC one, but didn't have that playable feel in my opinion (PC Port)
Fears - This one was pretty good. Alot like Doom
Wolf3D - Fun on every platform (PC Port)

Probably more but I can't remember

Question About Citadel...

Amigaboy,
Thanks for your list. It seems you have sticked a long time with your Amiga when the rest of the world went to PC or Console.

That game called Citadel sounds very interesting. When and by who was it published? Had this game also a 'real' 360 degrees-turnaround option as is common with 3D games?

Ya. I've stuck with the Amiga for years now (although I don't use it as much as I used to)

Citadel was made by....ummm...I can't remember. It did have 360 degrees left and right turning (not up/down). It's like Doom, not Quake

Citadel

Citadel was by Arrakis and Virtual Design. Don't ask me who they were!

Get it from here:

Smile Thanks...

Citadel looks great (for an A500 game anyway) so I will download it someday.
I originally thought this game was a conversion of a C64 game with the same name.

There's also "Behind The Iron Gate" , that works with an A500 and 1Mb..

It has some strangely blue graphics that you get used with time, it's fast enough, it doesn't run in a small screen.. and has also the odd feature of an aim on screen, so you point and shoot at your enemies using the mouse, and control with the keyboard..

Cool Sounds familiar

Behind the Iron gate sounds very familiar. Wasn't this game published in 1994? Somehow I remember screenshots from it in Amiga Power-magazine. Somehow the graphics looked vaguely similar to Rocbocop 3.

Big grin Robocop 3-esque

Yes, Behind the Iron gate is exactly the game as I remember it. It looks very Robocop 3-esque indeed. Strange, this game too seems to be written by a bunch of East-European people.

Strange?

Why strange? Remember "Total Football" and CroTeam? CroTeam got pretty famous with their latest brainchild, Serious Sam.

(No affiliation exists between me and countries or people east of Europe, but I was just wondering why you called that strange).

I think Croteam actually made Football Glory

Total Football is from Domark

Amigaboy kicks Fred's ass

No Fred. That's not a First Person Shooter (FPS). An FPS game is one where you take control of a person (in first person) and you do stuff in real time. ie. Doom like

Besidses, Aquaventura is a chase-view game, so it's actually 3rd person!

Eek Speaking of Amiga first person shooters

Here's an amazing story of something I came across yesterday at work. We have a large network with a lot of peoples back-ups on it from years ago. I was looking through them when I came across one which said AlienBreed. When I looked inside it was all original graphics and artwork from Alien Breed 3D II: The Killing Grounds. 46MB worth of artwork to be exact. I was so amazed. There was loads of art that I haven't even seen in the game. I'll have to ask the guy all about it. Find out if they're any interesting Alien Breed 3D II stories. I can't post any of the graphics by the way for obvious (copyright) reasons so don't ask please!

Happy Some responses

Laundromat, you wrote:
‘No affiliation exists between me and countries or people east of Europe, but I was just wondering why you called that strange’
What I felt strange is that in the later years of Amiga all mayor softwarecompanies (EA, Sierra, Ocean) left the scene and the market was taken over by programmingteams from Eastern Europe (which produced far superior state-of-the-art software). Looks like they discovered the Amiga in its later years.

Frederic & Akira,
Have you ever played a crack of Aquaventura? Back in 1992 I wanted to copy this game but some people said it was uncrackable. I have never seen a copy of it since.

Steve_B,
That is a very interesting story to read. Looks like a (former) graphics artist of Alien Breed 3D II has some connection with the company where you work. Keep us posted.

Hey, does anybody have a copy of the original Aquaventura. It may have just been a demo, but years before the game was released there was a copy of the game (or early demo) that I seem to remember not being cracked (I guess it was copied with a hardware copier or something). My friend Bill (Paradox/BBC) had a copy, but I never was able to copy it because he couldn't remember how his was copied (from the ACE club from the Phillipines). I don't recall ever seeing this one on the net.
