Exclamation Found -> Tensai (Was: What is this game called?!?!?!?!)

Hi
I have looked EVERYWHERE for this game I had on a coverdisk years ago. I think it must have been about 1993-95. U played a muscley man with a big weird shaped sword that looked like a twig! The demo level was huge and finished with a picture of a big purple monster head on. I drew a (bad!) picture to make it easier for you all to see how the game looked!
Here is my rendition of how the game looked:

Oh and that yellow thing is a fallen tree.
So does ANYONE know this game?!? I think it began with "T" but I cant be sure!

PLEASE HELP!!!

Maybe "Odyssey" or "Targhan"?

A couple of weeks ago there was a discussion about a game called Targhan. A game called Odyssey is also mentioned. Maybe this is the game you are looking for?

I thought it might be Targhan at first (name sounded "right!) but looking at screenshots Ive found of Targhan I can see its not. It looked less real than Targhan. My picture isnt bad actually now I think about it!

Usually Cody will step in here with one of his trademark double-barrel screenshots, but he is out of town for at least a week.

Would you recognize the game name if you saw it? If so, you may wanna try this site:

Could it be "Jim Power"?

No I dont think it was Jim Power, the name doesnt sound right and it looks TOO colourful and cartoony. Thanks for the list tho, I will go through that and look up each one if I have too!

rastan

Picture reminds me of rastan, but this wasn't released for the amiga. I'm sure there's tons of similar games though. I've just looked at twistin's link and it sounds like torvak the warrior (core design I think)

I don't seem to have it, but I was pretty sure "Rastan" was released on the Amiga, as well. I know I have seen ads for it and I am pretty sure I have seen a copy for sale on ebay. Not 100% sure, though...

the thing that makes me wonder is the fact it was released on every other platform at the time. Why not an amiga version

even with a so much distinctive sword
the heroe carries with him.

I also recall seeing Rastan available for the Amiga. I have played the C64 version for sure, but I don't remember playing the Amiga one. The ads were there, and I've seen boxes. Perhaps this is one game we should eb going after?

I still have no clue about this game. It would help if you remember in which coverdisk you got it. At least which magazine it was, so we can scan thru all mags from those 2 years.

Could it be something similar to Tex Warrior? This came in a The One coverdisk, as a full game freebie. However I don't know if it was like what you described, couldnt find the game right now for testing it.

Rastan

To be honest until this question I hadn't realised that rastan didn't exist for the amiga, but I did a check for an atari st version too and that doesn't seem to exist either, this seems to indicate that it wasn't released at the time for any 16-bit computer. The only version I can definitely remember playing was the c64 version, I also thought I'd played an amiga version, but I think we're all mistaken...

Nah, mate, I remember playing Trex Warrior a couple of months ago and it was this 3D exploration/space buggy/shoot 'em up/whatever thingy. Although the coverdisk version is not available at the Nth Dimension at this moment (you only get the cover scan), the game can be found at the Thalion Webshrine. I agree with you though, Akira, that Reg should try to remember what magazine and what coverdisk (details like issue number or date) the game came on. We'll try to help you the best we can! This must be one of those rare gems!!! Are you sure the (full) game was actually released and that it's not just the demo that ever existed?

I did some scrounging today.. Best I came up with was Taito claiming they were making a copy for the amiga. Whether they released it who knows. Maybe it was mame I played it on.. heh

I also recall a PC version of Rastan, was that ditched too? I sure have seen screenshots of all that in a Compute!'s Magazine, I'll try to scan the ad.
