The Way Of The Hubba *PREVIEW* Released

You can grab it from the Zone.

This is an unofficial sequel to IK+. It is VERY well done and very playable. The game was supposed to be released some 7 or so years ago, but was never completely finished.

It is a preview version from the floppy I got from the author. It lets you play the game until you beat all 3 opponents and then quits.

Some people are trying to fix that since I have full sources and everything... if you would like to help then give me a mail (tomcat @ sgn.net). The full sources have a newer version with a lot of blood and other special effects, however I wasn't able to write it to the floppy Also supported are multiple players (upto 4 human players) and different game modes.

The game is AGA only and works in WinUAE (last time I tried I needed to disable JITT compiler).

Have fun with it.

Yes and No
I'm currently working casual so I spend most of my time either working or sleeping
I have 2 x Amiga 500's and 2 x CD32 but I have to move very soon
Once I've moved I'll mod the xbox and make due
But one day I'll win an Amiga 1200 off ebay and use that

But have you played Deathrow, very similar to Speedball but with 4 on 4, swearing, blood and matrix like ko moves

Triple Barrel Screenshots (TPSs) are old news.

The future is in Quadruple Barrel Screenshots (QBSs)!

Well, from what I gathered from the author it wasn't at first but they were considering it in the end... until they all went to the uni :-) It is very playable and with nice gfx and music... with a bit of polish it would easily be better than IK+.

It would have to be SOME game to beat the mighty IK+

First things first, can you drop the pants? if it can't do that it has no chance!

Asked the author and it WAS planned... also the AI is a bit better than original IK+ ... you would notice it if you could go on in the game and not stop after beating first 3 opponents... Hope some people here can fix that...

I wonder if it could've been released though. I do recall in the early issues of the relaunched "The One", there was mention of rumours of System 3 doing a sequel to IK+, however that Archer Maclean himself was not involved with it. (Despite hearing of the rumours himself at the time). Furthermore, it mentioned that Archer Maclean held the copyright to IK+ & mentioned that possible legal entanglements could arise if System 3 were doing a sequel without his permission.

Just talked to the other author of TWOTH (The Way of the Hubba) and he said that it was supposed to be released freely - no intention of selling it...
