Cool Cholo remake!

My second all-time favorite game after Elite:
Cholo

Such a great atmospheic 3D game & though it's been out quite a while I didn't know about this Windows remake.

Better still they've done a 'sympathetic' update that improves greatly on the frankly s*it GFX of the 8bit original while maintianing the feel.

And, it includes a copy of the rather good novella that came in the original's box.

Bang goes the rest of the weekend. Going to be playing this on the projector...

Never heard about that game before, but this remake is awesome. The graphics remind me of Tron (which I really like) and the game seems to be very insteresting. Another game to play during my holiday next week
Thank you very much for sharing this info Charlie

It's kind of like Paradroid in 3D + Adventure + Stratergy + a good back story...
...not necessarily a fast-paced game but one you're likely to loose hours & hours to one you get into it.
Hope you enjoy it.

I love games that are slow paced with a vast world to play in. Once I stepped out of the first building and saw the 'city' I kinda felt in love with this one Guess I'll having a real good time playing it

If you like Tron you should really play Tron 2.0 on PC Adropac2 (I you haven't yet). Oh and of course Cholo
Can't wait till the new Tron movie is playing in cinemas

Yeah i just sent you a message regarding the film, i'm a huge fan

Yes iv'e got Tron2 for xbox and i love how the atmosphere is well created here

I hope the film is good as this is one film that deserves a great follow on

Iv'e not yet really played the Cholo remake but i played this on my C64 (very slow on that of course) and it's one of a kind but i have no idea if it's great or not as i was never any good at it.The remake is very inviting though so i may have to put some time into it.

I downloaded Omikron, a straight rip torrent and it runs particularly well on my pc - another i need to find the time to play

I hope you find the time to play these two games. On the other hand they are not the best games to play if you're short on time I guess
I just had a short look at Cholo and don't know how hard this game will be. However the controls are quite simple, so it should hopefully not be too difficult for me
