Super League 2021: Round 5 - Cast Your Votes

Welcome to the vote for the game we will be playing in round 5.

Magazine Vote

This is our regular magazine round and the first of three 'pool' votes where we can only choose from the selected games. We are voting from issues 16, 17 and 18 of Amiga Format. Chosen at random with some trusty dice, this covers the Christmas period from November 1990 to January 1991. Maybe you got one of these games as a present? All the reviewed games, except for re-releases, are listed below.

I've had a brief look through to see which ones have scores or possible ways to play them in the competition. And placed games that probably can't be played in separate lists. I've had to make snap decisions based on what little I know about each game so it might not be perfect. If you can think of a way to score a game feel free to vote for it and let us know how. Also, if you know about a game that can't be played fairly please mention it.

This is a double round. The two most popular games will be played in round 5.

This vote ends at 23:59 (UK Time) on Saturday 27th March 2021.
  • Vote for up to 5 games and rank them 1st - 5th.
  • Please choose games suitable for competition play.
  • If a game has ECS and AGA versions, state your preference. ECS is default.
  • Each vote for a game gives it 10 points.
  • Edited votes will not be counted.
  • Take a look at the Lemon Amiga voting choices HERE.

Great to have 20 voters for this round. Thanks everyone and to john4p for counting votes. Pang ran away with it and Lotus picked up speed in the second week.

Both games are easy to score.

For Lotus we will play all three difficulties and add the scores together.

Pang will be played on Normal mode. A quick look at an old thread says that lots of the cracks have missing features that will affect the score. So we all have to use the linked versions.

Round 5 is 4 weeks long.

120 Pang (111112233444)
80 Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge (11122355)

50 Rick Dangerous II (12335)
50 Ivan 'Ironman' Stewart's Super Off Road (22445)

40 Saint Dragon (1135)
40 Atomic Robokid (1225)
40 Golden Axe (1335)
40 Dragon Breed (4455)

30 Wings (124)
30 Powermonger (223)
30 New York Warriors (234)
30 Robocop 2 (234)
30 Future Basketball (235)
30 Torvak the Warrior (235)
30 Ooops Up (334)
30 Toyota Celica GT Rally (344)
30 The Killing Game Show (355)

20 Nucleus (11)
20 Badlands (12)
20 Pick 'n' Pile (12)
20 Gremlins 2: The New Batch (25)
20 Helter Skelter (45)
