I enjoyed this, would like more of them. I am a sucker for getting and playing all versions of a game eg elite, gauntlet, turrican, out run!

I would.. but there are far fewer versions of Beast 2 and they're mostly similar.

Nice video! It was very interesting to see that there are 2 Genesis versions in addition to the other platforms.

Great video, I'm also rather impressed by the Master System version which look relatively good. I've had a whole lot of worser looking MS games back in the days! The PC Engine version looks good too especially for an 8-bit system.

Does this video include the rather commendable Atari Lynx version? Or the C64 version?

Is there somewhere to get this in AVI/MPG/MP4/IFF format please?

That site doesn't seem to work properly here, must need JavaScript or something, it would be nice to have them in an Amiga-friendly format.

You can download the original AVI (Xvid) file here -

http://www.vimeo.com/1341815

However, it's not worth it.. I wanted to test just how good I could get the quality on Youtube and Vimeo so I selected the highest possible quality.. which resulted in a 200+ meg file for 7 minutes

EDIT 2 - I encoded a lower quality version (still Xvid, AVI).. little over 60 megs. I'm currently uploading it on Yousendit, I used the email on your site as the receiver address. I'll post the link here as well when it's done uploading.

EDIT 3 - https://www.yousendit.com/download/T...Mm0zeUpFQlE9PQ

Nice video, I never knew there were so many ports! I've always wondered what sales numbers they reached with their SotB series, as they were so appreciated. Would be interesting to know.
