ah what was the point... even tho he was one of the organisers of the event he obviously had no idea of how limited the capabilities of his phone were...

besides, the guy liked Babylon 5 after series 1 - says it all really /looks around nervously for reprisal from Jambo

Its a good port, the game is slowish when there is more than one character on screen
For instance at the start with the boulder and the aztec dude
When there gone its all good until the next room of ppl
The second versiom is already out too

I say more of these games for the xbox
Nothing like getting an xbox and using it for old classic such as this

I sure hope you're talking about the cellphone version Ash and not the Xbox version.

Don't quite understand the point of this though. I presume it has been done just because it can be done.

You can emulate an Amiga on an XBOX pretty well and Rick Dangerous runs perfectly on it - without any slowdown!

Did you know, that X-BOX II has a Motorola G5 CPU?
I wait for new games ported from X-BOX to Pegasos (or AmigaOne)

Similarity in CPU does not a port make.

The Gamecube has a G3 CPU for example

Also keep in mind that the xbox 2 was going to be non backwards compatible with xbox games
All this and more is likely to change and be speculated upon until its release ages from now

ah yes, I don't suppose that there was any connection between this and MS purchasing virtual PC, you suppose?
