2017 Frame Game

Nope,n ot at all… which isn’t very rewarding because I think that was a very nice guess.


#862

Is that a Star Control 2 cut scene?


#863

No, nothing sneaky like a cutscene.


#864

Something screams Amiga on this one…nothing I ever played though.


#865

Wild guess: Pang?


#866

Windows 3.1 bubble screensaver?


#867

Did I hear somebody asking for more bubbles?


#868

Some flavor of Arkanoid we haven’t done yet.


#870

Mickey Mouse in… Bubble land?


#871


#872

Oh it’s a shmup of some kind? Vertical? Which is a shame, as I know barely any of those!

Let’s say SWIV, as at least I’m in the right genre, even if I don’t remember it having a bubble works level.


#873

Was SWIV really Silkworm IV? I always wondered where the games in the gap went… Prolly more of a subject for another thread.
This being a vertical shoot’em up, if nobody gets it, you’ll win by default Pod!


#874

Hey, I’ve never actually read this thread but your posting the link somehow invoked me. Anyway, is that Blazing Lasers?


#875

@divedivedive That’s gotta be it. Drove me crazy. I know it from this.


#876

WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU?! This is clearly the best thread on Qt3.

(Plus, think about all of the other images you’ve missed out on!)


#877

I had faith my summoning ritual would work!

Blazing Lazers, also known as Gunhed, for the best console of all-time, the PC-Engine.

Jumping from a world of terrible CPC 8bits games, and over the Amiga world of “pretty but not very dynamic” games my friends were taunting me with, it was such a shock.
The opening of the first level Gunhed with its oversped scrolling was just mindblowing. Since that wouldn’t be well rendered in a still, I picked a level that traumatized me: the 8th one, with its crazy bubbles being the relentless enemy. The soundtrack was taking a turn for the weird in that level as well. It is all very peculiar.
The game is a Hudson published Compile shoot’em up, i.e. a gem. Probably the best one on a console that is crowded with games of that genre - until Spriggan showed up on CD-ROM (the other Compile shooter of the machine incidently, published by Naxat that time).

Now you are doomed to post something, @divedivedive!

Edit: for those who love videos, the initial moment I was talking about (although it doesn’t render all the fluidity of the experience):


#878

Oh crap, I did not think this through. OK, will get something up later tonight.


#879

Hey dudes, I am not having any luck with making my image turn out right. I think I’ll defer my turn so I don’t hang the game up any more than I already have.


#880

I’ll give it a go


#881

Her story?
