sidescrolling beat-em-up for the BBC

Postby tartartar » Sun Sep 05, 2004 10:14 am

Has anyone information on a particular sidescrolling beat-em-up for the Beeb? The game I'm thinking of must have seen it about '87 or '88. I only remember seeing magazine screenshots of it (not unlike a single-player Double Dragon). Very colourful (MODE2 if I recall correctly - 8 proper colours, 8 flashing) in a smaller screen than normal for the BBC. I believe it was advertised as needing a minimum of an extra 8K sideways RAM.<br>
<br>
Does this ring any bells? Or am I thinking of some public domain game? The reason I ask is obviously it caught my attention, and I'd love to play the damn thing if at all possible. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i></i>

Ae you sure it wasn't an Archimedes game? There were several like that for the Arc. <p></p><i></i>

Don't suppose it was Barbarian II? Not exactly a beat-em-up, but it's the only think of that ilk I can think of that was sideways scrolling on the Beeb. <p></p><i></i>

Not Barbarian 1, or 2, or Subway Vigilante, or WOTEF, Karate Combat, or BFMOF, etc. etc. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START : --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/ohwell.gif ALT=":"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i></i>

certainly weren't many beat 'em ups released for the 8 bit Acorns...<br>
<br>
and there were only a couple of games put out that would only run with extra memory available. so i really doubt that this was one...<br>
<br>
could it have been Yie-Ar Kung-Fu?<br>
<br>
if not then i'd have to err towards 'other platform'. <p></p><i></i>

Not Green Beret?<br>
<br>
Fits the MODE 2, side-scrolling bit, not so good on the beat 'em up aspect, and...hmmm... didn't need any extra RAM....<br>
<br>
Nah, probably isn't that is it?<br>
<br>
It's not all that good either. Forget I said anything.<br>
