OK listeners, in our April show I will be reviewing a game that appeared on mulitple systems.

The competition is simple. What game am I reviewing? The clues are that it appeared on:
Commodore 64
Commodore Amiga
Atari ST
DOS
NES

Post your guesses here. Everybody is limited to 3 guesses so nobody can spam the thread with a huge list. 3 guesses and the winner will be announced on the April show.

If nobody gets it with 3 guesses I may up it to 5 later.

OK, the April show is getting nearer so I'll lift the restrictions on guesses.

No spamming with game lists obviously but keep the guesses coming.

Geez Miner, can't you give a better hint than that? Maybe genre: Platform game? Arcade game?

Theres like a metric buttload of games that fit your criteria! :HOW:

On second thought, wasn't the April show already released?! :WO

OK then while we are about a week away from the new show, it is a space strategy game. No, not Elite. ;)

Like I said, we are about a week away.

Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding.

A winner is you!

Have you played it? Do you like it?

Crap! Now i have to get SoCal to send you something. :o

Wahoo! :CHEER:

I played the hell out of it on the C64 [Overlord], but when I switched to the Amiga version [Supremacy], I had a lot of problems getting it running right as, iirc, I was using WB 3.0 and it had compatiblity issues.

I seem to recall also that, at one point, I had filled ALL the planet side slots with ships and couldn't land anymore to backup my troops. The should have let you detonate your troop transports on demand in that situation.

Fun game though, perhaps I'll see if I can get it running on the DS... :GB

I know it works on PSP if you have one.

BTW, my review has the game theme on it so be sure to listen, it's a great tune.

Are you talking about the music from the C64 Intro?

If so, bravo! Pure awesomeness! It's always in my list of .sids when I'm in the mood...
