- Beyond the Ice Palace (Atari ST). I used to play this game as a kid but I never managed to finish it. Now would be my chance!
- Black Tiger (MAME). Same thing, I used the play the Atari ST version, the graphics where almost as good as the Arcade version but it was incredibly slower and I suspect less playable.
- Builderland (Amiga). I used to play the Atari ST version, but the Amiga version has a better music. You've got build the land so the character can keep walking.
- Doki Doki Penguin Land (MAME). I've stumbled on that one a few months ago and I thought I like it. You've got to move this big egg without breaking it throughout the levels. Could be fun.
- Fire and Brimstone (Atari ST). One of my favorite Atari ST game. Very challenging and addictive (and gorgeous for the time). Each screen represents a challenge requiring both control and problem solving skills.
- Ikari Warriors (MAME). One of the first decoupled walking/aiming multi-directional shooter. I used to play the Amdstrad and then Atari ST versions where walking was coupled with aiming. Given how I enjoyed Caliber 50, I'm thinking it would be cool to revisit that one with the same walking/aiming decoupling mechanics.
- Strider (MAME). I used to play the Amdstrad and Atari ST versions but the Arcade version is sooo much better. I found it really tough, never managed to get beyond stage 2. I'm curious to see if I could do better now.
- The Killing Game Show (Atari ST). I just like the atmosphere of this one. I played it a bit but it was probably too tough. It's kind of a shooter where you've got to progress rapidly enough not to get drown.
- Wizball (C64). One of my first Atari ST game, a bi-directional non-hectic shooter. I used to play that game with a good friend, we never got really far (I don't think we ever passed the first level ;-). The C64 version is considered superior (better playability I think).That's it for now!
