Heck, it's not just the acid pits that whack off half your health. Pretty much every enemy in the game does this. And it doesn't help that you can't carry med kits with you. I gave up on that game years ago. I'm all for more challenging games but I think they took Technoshock way too far.

Hi Dark,
Did you say easy in Technoshock is difficult? It's insane. Half of your
health gets zapped by those acid pools or whatever they are; I really wish
they took those out.

Best Regards,
Hayden

Re:Q9 version 1.2.

I agree Haiden.

Were it the easy or normal difficulties which were too difficult, as in
something like technoshock, then there would indeed be a problem, but insane

is supposed to be, ----- well insane!

Beware the Grue!

Re:Q9 version 1.2.


Hi,
That's a two-sided coin. On one hand I can see how you can be a bit
exasperated with that (like I said, I do think Tarzan Junior is just a bit
too hard). But on the other hand, it becomes a matter of challenge, of
saying, "Ok,I made it to the Cave World Level 3, how far will I make it
today?" See where I'm going? But as I said, I do agree with you as well.

Best Regards,
Hayden

Dark, Here's the problem though. Has anyone actually completed any of
Philip's games on insane, beta team included? If yes then I congratulate
you

for a job well done, but if not, we have a problem. especially since some
of

his games have been out for a really long time. If people can't beat games
that have been out for years, This suggests to me that the game is almost
unbeatable. In that case, what would be the point of a difficulty so hard
that no one can beat? how about his recent games? can any of you claim
you've beaten Q9 on insane?

Funnily enough haiden, I personally always thought of this as one of the
games' strengths.

I got through easy on the day I bought it (yes, I bought it before it
went

freeware), and was a trifle disappointed, but normal took me a degree
more

practice to beat and I've never done it on insane.

for my money, this is actually how difficulties should be, so once you
raise the difficulty, you need to raise your game to match.

I also noticed philip seems to carry this on in his other games as well,
in fact generally I'd say formulating difficulty levels seems to be one
of

philip's major strengths.

beware the Grue!

Dark.

Hi,
My only criticism is the shear difference in level difficulties. I can
beat
easy, hands down, but I cannot beat normal at all.

Best Regards,
Hayden

You should actually give it a try especially as it's free, you can get
it
from Tom's free games section.

it was also produced by philip bennifall back when he was running pb
games,
and has various cool features like cut scenes and multiple weapons,
pluss
some rather fun bosses and obstacles.

in fact I think my only major problem with the game is that while the
side
scrolling levels are rather fun, there are also none side scrolling
levels
which can vary in quality.

one in particular is especially awsome (I'm thinking of the torgon
battle
here), but a couple of the others are rather less interesting.

Stil, the game has far more good levels than bad ones imho.

Beware the grue!

Dark.

I have never played Tarzan Junior, so cannot comment on it.  But all of
the

others are good side scrollers.

I personally wouldn't like to choose.

superliam is a great game with cutscenes etc, and is stil fun to play,
in

fact the same could be said for Tarzan junior, however Mota is a far
more

inervative game sinse it's practically speaking the first true 2D side
scroller with significant use of vertical movement, also it's an
adventure game not an arcade game.

Q9 is simply a case of the concept of a side scrolling arcade game ala
superliam done exceptionally well.

If I were asked to choose, my vote would probably go to Mota sinse in
many ways it pushes things forward more, but Q9 is stil a great game
in
it's own right and I'm very much looking forward to having more of it
in
the upgrade.

Beware the grue!

Dark.
