Thumbs down Planetemu.net - Bitmap Brothers trouble

Can you imagine what a STUBBORN company this is?

Planetemu.net didn't write anything about this in the news, but they clandestinely removed ALL commercial Bitmap Brothers games from the site!
Look yourself:
Neither Gods nor Xenon 1|2 nor Chaos Engine 1|2 nor Magic Pockets nor ANYTHING else is available from this site anymore.

So there will be tons requests for these games again in the future on this board, I'm afraid

So guys, please don't direct people to planetemu for games made by this company, because they CANNOT get them from here anymore.
This is new, for I downloaded all Magic Pockets versions one month ago.

I suppose it is understandable when you consider that a hell of a lot of classic bitmap brothers games are being ported to the Gameboy Advance.

Yeah, I'm considering getting a GBA mainly to play some of those games if I can find them.

Whoops, didn't think of that at all.

Has any GBA-ported BMB game ever been released yet?

I seriously think, given the right price and advertising, an AGA compatible 2d console can still sell and be popular!!! not all consoles HAVE to compete with PS2 do they?

2d rocks, we play soldat at our lab's network all the time and prefer it to quake3 and MOHAA.

bitmaps

Yep, Magic Pockets is too. I guess you can't really blame the Bitmaps for protecting their property. Magic Pockets was a bit pants anyway.

Dunno whether or not it's actually OUT yet; but it's one of the games they have listed on the site under games that are being converted by Crawfish for the GBA.
