DataStorm Permission!

What Nice chaps at Visionary Design , They wandered onto
my website and asked if I had asked permission to have the game datastorm downloadable.
I said I would take it off straight away if requested & mentioned that most companies dont allow it & how I didnt even know they were still in business etc..
Thinking of removing the link just then I got this email read on...
We give our permission for the game to be displayed on your site <blank>...
It is not a problem.

As for our site, well our .Com is down at the moment for a large overhaul,
but we run a mirror site in association with Epic, so take a look at it
as it will tell you about our on-going projects.

The address is....


Let me know what you think.


So I dont know if I'm the first but what the hey you can officially download Datastorm from my site now!....
*shush * just ignore the over stuff there !

A nice permission email, what a stunner! Makes a pleasant change from the legal-demand men-in-suit mentality that sadly seems to plague the retro obselete retro-gaming scene.

I doubt it , Some of them are very warey of the Intellectual Property on these Games. The IP may still be worth something to
someone somewhere , what with all these mobile phone games and GBA & GP32 coming along , we could still see Speedball or the like on them I guess.
The GBA is being deluged with back catalogue games and 'remakes' from older snes/nes titles already !.Some of them should have stayed in the past!.
Those 'big' titles are bound to be like that , Its the other ones that just sit there gathering dust bytes that concern most retro gamers....

Datastorm is a Fantastic Defender clone, the best ever IMO

Datastorm WHDLOAD from KGs pack crashes on my A1200T. It goes through intro but then hangs as soon as ship appears on screen...

Datastorm is indeed a smart Defender clone and it even manages to introduce a number of additions as well.Actually even though it is a clone , it's hard to call it just that as it deserves it's own recognition much like Dropzone as well.Only thing i suppose you can quibble at slightly with Datastorm is the 25 fps - fast action games like this require 50 really but i can understand the technical limitation imposed at the time.
