Question [Found: Megaforce Tron] Tron type game?

I'm still looking out for this game if anybody can help?
It was a lightcycle game that followed about 4 or 5 demos.

The thing I remember disk was that it had a green alien at the beginning of the disk if I remember correctly, Ive got a feeling it was Eddie from Iron Maiden but I could be wrong.

Sorry im not much help!

The tron game was excellent, it was a great 2 player game!!

Any help is gratefully received.

I'm not exactly sure if I recall the same disk you played the game on, but my personal favorite Tron light cycle game on the Amiga is called Tech (or Technix). I'll steal one of Cody's trademark screengrabs (as seen below)...

Question Rasterbike?

I remember playing a lightcycle game on my neighbor's Amiga years ago. It was called Rasterbike. I have never seen it in ADF format...

This guy had (and probably still does have) hundreds of Amiga games. I often wonder if he has any that people are looking for and can't find. But we're in the US, and most of this stuff is probably in Europe, right?

Well, there's still a good bit of us Americans here! And a whole bunch of US Amiga games are terribly missing in action. Any list of games you can get from him for ripping to ADF would rock! We are archaeologists here, daddy-o!

Moved to correct forum (sometimes, I just don't notice these things!)

Cody should have some more ideas - which reminds me...where the heck has Cody been the last several days?

I don't believe so. The only versions I have seen have been single-parted, mega-crunched, trained copies on compacts. Originals are quite scarce for this game; I have been looking long and hard. I think I remember finding one once on ebay, but this was before I had an account and I had to watch it go bye-bye. If anyone is aware of any place selling an original copy of this game, please let me know where, as I will buy it for the WHD team to fix.

There's already a WHDLoad install for Tech:

Grab the files needed for the install from the Zone - put them in the same directory as the Tech.slave file.

No m8 it wasnt these, all i remeber was there was 2 players, 1 white line & 1 yellow line against 2 computer players!

You pushed fire & the line sped up, the graphics wasnt much to write home about but the music was good!

Well, there are certainly a lot of these types of games in the PD. Have you tried Aminet?
