Desert Racing Of Bardos

Has anyone tried the demo or bought the real game on a real Amiga?
Have bought the game and the game crawls at 1-2fps except the intro animations and cutscene animations.

Demo: http://www.intuitionbase.com/DesertRacingDemo.lha

Other people have reported slow FPS even on 060/66mhz, perhaps some code tweaking is in place. Or a PPC-exe :P

Maybe the full version is faster, like with Freespace.

Have posted in the APC support forum.
The speed of the game now makes it unplayable.

I like Flyin' High, it's just too hard on the hardest difficulty level . Turbo Racer would have been good if they put some effort on the gameplay and playability in general, it's just too difficult in the later levels and a kinda demo feeling in it. One mistake and you lose the game. SOTTM was good in it's time, now the gfx look kinda blocky, but a quite good game overall

Another Voxel Amiga Game was one called Wheels On Fire.

It was very fast, but quite blocky.. Still not a bad little game despite the average reviews.

It got repetitive though.
Check it out here.

Flying High was ok though. I didnt exactly jump up and down when i saw it, but neither did i think it was bad. The best 3D texture mapped/voxel based racer was Xtreme Racing. Especially 2 players.

I cant help but feel though, that games like Turbo Racer, Flying High & Wheels On Fire made the Amiga look a little Cheap!?. like it was not coping with demands of the time.

The best 3D games of the time that i thought looked the part ( but werent racing ) were AB3D, Breathless, Testament, Trapped & Genetic Species. Those were the ones that make me think WOW, my Amiga is still up there with the best!.

Gloom though was in a league of its own. Not exaclty amazing, but a damn great game to play with all those body parts flying all over the place and in 2 player, need i say more.
