Oh man, that's a shame. Gem'X is one of the most brilliant games I ever played.


Also find funny how many people complain about Feud. It tooks me ages to understand it too (I played the MSX version though, I didn't even know it had an Amiga version). The game sucked anyway, it's veeeeery boring. And it's piss hard even if you know what you're doing.



One game I never understood how to play properly was Exile. People always says how the game is awesome, but all I did was fly around the planet aimless, pickup some stuff I had no idea how to use, and that was about it.


Vampire's Empire I also played on the MSX version and I never knew what to do either, I just walked without a clue. It never seemed to be a good game anyway

Hired Guns and Frontier are 2 games that also deserve to be learned, as both games are extremely awesome

If we're including Speccy games...

Gift from the Gods
Cosmic Wartoad


Both of which I got WITH my Speccy when it was bought new. Those games were unpleasantly insane!

Onslaugt. Doesn't seem too crappy. My brother had the original game, but I couldn't be bothered to read the manual, which later went to the trash.

Can someone explain the game to me or provide me with a manual scan ?

+1


I also could never figure out Vampire's Empire. It had such great graphics for that time period but I never knew what to do or how to win.

ah, this topic brings back memories. The immortal in particular. Cool as hell looking game, but i always die in combat on the first or 2nd fight. I can understand the general concept of how it works, i just never managed to get the timing down. Beast lord also comes to mind. In fact i still can't figure it out. Tried using a walkthrough and still run into problems.

Curse of Enchantia. I mean I know how to play an adventure game, but whoever designed those puzzles is weirder than I am.

Yes, I know what you mean, but a great game though.

"Games you never understood to play (the right way)"

Heck this is easy! Flight Simulator 2. My very kind and generous Aunt bought me this game in around 1990 or 91 (cant remember which).
That was too advanced for a 11 year old who barely read English. (I'm Swedish)

"Great" is quite an exaggeration, I think, but I thought it was a fun little adventure, despite the clumsy interface and, as mentioned, odd puzzles.

Any RTS game for me, I enjoy the base building side of it so much that I usually neglect to build any type of army, the AI is always more than happy to keep attacking the same heavily defended positions.

I remember moonstone when I first had an amiga.Start game,go to a location DIE,Rinse and repeat,give up.

Now I have an amiga again a friend told me how much he enjoyed the game so I fired it up and he showed me that the enemys can be defeated if you know the trick for each of them.Now it's making sense and I can see why people enjoy it.

he good one Moonstone had me punching a hole in the wall. Mostly because I started playing it too late; when I was between 7-12 I had the patience to just try and try again until I had figured it out - it was more an "I have to prove myself to the adults" kind of thing; starting from age 13 I couldn't care less about impressing someone and thus I lost the patience to hammer things out

I would say (though only a personal feeling) that it's extremely difficult.

Through frustration and trying (and wanting to progress further) though, I did manage it, only once or twice.

You have to wiggle the joystick furiously from side to side while pressing fire continuously to get away from Peloquin. I think maybe the space bar or enter key also helped?

Some said that if you had a Quickshot joystick and set it to Autofire it worked better - I had a few different types of Quickshot but personally I didn't find them any good for this - I had more success with a simple Competition Pro.

When you get past Peloquin, you go out into the graveyard and meet Dr. Decker. You then have to dodge his knife throwing (which is tricky enough in itself) after which you get shot by the police and taken to the morgue.

You escape from the Morgue and go back to Midian, where the game then changes into a sort of RPG adventure type thing and you explore the underground tunnels. I spent hours exploring but after nearly a whole day had to eventually give up as couldn't progress any further.

I think this is the level before the end as well, but I couldn't get any further - and what a Pain the in *** game - you couldn't even save!

I really loved the atmosphere and everything in this game. It was quite slow to get into and I quickly realised you needed to dedicate some time to getting anywhere in it - but even now I'd say it's worth a go.

Reminds me a little of Dune and Dune II, only different, but also better.

lol I thought no-one else had this game at the time, it was an odd one though. I enjoyed playing it even though I hadn't half a clue what was going on!

"Games you never understood to play" Mmmm...Plenty of these, first few that spring to mind are the settlers and Perihelion..perhaps the lack of game manuals with pirated games didn`t help. Still thanks to sites like this and emulation i`m enjoying a new renascence in Amiga gaming

Another one is Pipeline (1989)(Brown, R.) It's arcade game so it should be easy to understand rules but what should I do to complete level?
