Duel 03: Lemmings vs Worms

New duel.

This time is a duel of two classics born in Amiga, and also from two very representative companies of Amiga gaming.. one on the beginnings and, the other in the last years.

I think is pretty clear that one took much inpiration from the other,.. but both were fresh concepts.

- Lemmings, surely creator of a new genre, save'em up. Great puzzle game.

- Worms, original redefinition of the old Artillery games.

you choose..

I would have to Lemmings
Great one player game with lots of levels and good two player mode
Where as Worms (at least for me) only excels in two player mode

I would say both are equally good at graphics, animation and sound

A bit hard to compare the two. I guess it boils down to the cuteness of the main characters

Lemmings for me, At some point it could almost be called the amiga's "killer app"

... I know it wasnt exclusive... but for a brief moment in time... Less than a month probably... I'm not here for an argument.... Look, I don't wanna mess with no reefer addicts...

Lemmings, Although I don't have the game, I've seen LGR's Review on the Game (and Holiday '94's Version) and from the box art, they're more cuter than the worms

I think they should remain seperate threads, not sure if you can merge polls anyway...

Having them on a new threads, helps to keep it all on topic (actually knowing us lot I take it back )

I think Im not going to make many more duels.. for the moment they have been interesting, imho. Though soon they will be too dumb to still being interesing.

both previous duels received enough votes, thats why I decided to continue.. and still receiving a decent amount of votes.
Also, as already have been commented, I dont know how to merge polls.. but old duels soon will lose in the deep of forum and will not annoys..

Thats my opinion. Of course, moderators opinion will be important.
btw, sorry if my english itsnt very good,.. just Im at work and my mind cant do it much better =)

Only the first version: http://www.back2roots.org/Docs/Revie...k%20Sibly%2C2/
The released version isn't Blitz Basic though.

Besides merging threads with a poll might be a problem anyway

What would we call any merged thread to come out of this?

Three Duels maybe? Hang on, what's the correct term for a face-off between six contenders? Perhaps a free-for-all?

No, it's just not worth it, methinks.

No contest really.. anyway both are great Amiga original titles which originated several sequels.

Ok, now watch out for next duel.. my last but one, probably.
