Oscar CD32 Version

Has anyone seen Oscar for the CD32 with this case art version? Was just browsing through ebay and nothing came up, this could be a very rare version to find.

That's the NTSC solo release as apposed to the double pack of Diggers & Oscar released in Europe, and yes its pretty rare and worth a bit of money if you can find a copy, there was also a solo Diggers release but there's a few more of those floating around ebay so not so hard to find.

And yeah i don't get all the hate for it, ok its not the best but compared to Dangerous Streets and Bubsy its much better! Plus if you get the version 2 of the disc it has exclusive levels and CD audio, compared to the A1200 version which was lobbed on the disc as the CD32 version wasn't ready in time for the launch.

I think yo-yo should be always in use, not as item to find. And some pits should be more obvious.

Wow, I didn't know that Amigajay. Thanks. What piece of hardware do you need to play NTSC games on a PAL CD32?

From memory of 1993 as i dont have a mouse currently, is hold both mouse buttons on reset which brings up a workbench style screen to let you change pal or ntsc.

Never knew there was a version 2. i just remember it being a very pretty game where you just ran around and collected stuff I believe. My memory was that it was a poor game and it only got played 2 or 3 times ever, perhaps it's not as bad as I remember?

That's a nice cover. I got the Diggers/Oscar double-pack thing with my CD32 (which my ex-mate nicked!!).

As for gameplay - it wasn't up there with the likes of Earthworm Jim, but I enjoyed playing it. It had nice touches, like dropping into B&W and Sepia for different genres. I might check it out again.

I have this game when I buy my A1200. When I was a kid I play it a lot. For someone who start with commodore128 and play games like Rick Dangerous or PP Hammer this game was a big jump in visual and audio. Music was so juicy, intro with all that different layers was very charming. Game by it-self is average, not too bad, but also not my favorite in platform gene. Maybe if level design was bit more linear with not that much backtracking I could enjoy it more.
CD32 version is best one if You are amiga fan, it got two extra levels and nice ambient music in levels, also at start there is manual. But if You search for best Oscar version - You wont find it, PC version got additional intro, SNES one lacks lot of levels, both have hi-score list while amiga lacks it. There is also Oscar for Nintendo DS but I never play it.
