Here are a few Mods I did back in the Days with the Protracker, shortly before I left the Amiga scene. I remember working all Days and Night on this pretty simple 4 Channel Tracks, `cause my talent for Music is VERY limited. Besides the first steps (using Loops and loops and massive Voice Samples zzzZZZ) this was my first attempt to make a "real deal". They are remakes of some great Amiga Mods, but nowadays I just don`t remember who composed the Original. :(
The concept of WTF Checkpoint is simple: checking out some free available (Retro-) Games for PC Windows, showing how they lookalike, a quick evaluation (at the end!) and a link where you can get this piece of Software (if you`re interested in playing it: it`s always in the description). There are still so many free Games outta there, it`s hard to keep an overview of it. So this is, where WTF Checkpoint takes place.
Ruff n` Tumble Mashup was developed by "Ironclaw". Kind of a Remake from the original Amiga Game, but got totally different Levels. The controls are (just like the original) very good and even if the Sounds and Grafix (and even the BOSSES XD) are ripped from Alltime-Classics, it comes along with it`s very own style. If you liked the original, you should give it a try.
Even if you never heard about "Giana Sisters" - well, you played Mario, didn`t you ? XD So you know what this game is all about.
This is a Remake of the classic Shoot Em Up Game from the Amiga and Atari ST. It`s very, very close to the Original, but some things are improved;
Like all the other Games in the "WTF Checkpoint" this one is for free. You can check it out over here;
A classic Shoot Em Up with a nice Retro-Style. Kinda reminds me of "Deluxe Galaga". Since the Enemys are coming from all different directions, you have to get used to the 4-way-all-around-shooting. ;) Challenging !
Searching through the whole Net you`ll be able to find one or another cool Game, that is deeply hidden in a big bunch of shity, awful & horrible Flash-Games. Since the WTF Checkpoint was brought to life just for all of these free available Games on the Internet , here`s another Game, that is really worth spending Time.
This turnbased Game seems to be unfinished. There`s no storyline - just the Battle between various Fighters, Mages and Healers that`s been shown over here in the Video. Too bad - because it seems that the Game is/was heading the right direction. Controls, Graphics, Music, Animation - none of them are awful at all. If anybody knows if "Tactics Core" is still in development: comment down below and let us know what the facts are.
Here`s another Checkpoint for you. This Time: the classic 2D shoot em up
The gravity isn`t your best friend in this Game. :) You need a very calm Hand if you wanna get through all 40 Levels of "Super Stacker 2". Check out the Video - and if you like these kind of Games, you can play it over here:
For those who don`t know; a "Tower Defence"-Game is a realtime-strategy where you have to defend your Home/Castle/Area (whatever the Setting is) by buying & placing Towers, upgrading them and beat the shi.. out of the forthcoming (and sometimes neverending) rushing enemies. ;) It`s your goal, to let all Foes face a Labyrinth of wrath, so they can barely move on without taking heavy damage. This kind of Game is easy to learn, hard to manage - and will make you totally addictive. ;)
In this (kind of Realtime-Roleplaying-)Game you hire 5 Fighters and make your way through hordes of Enemies. You can level up, create Spells that became useful within the realtime-fights and collect Equipment. The very first 2,3 Hours are very good, but after finishing the Storymode there`s nothing left but random Battles and a (very poor) Multiplayer-part.
Point, Click n`Shoot ? MOOHRHUHN OMFG !? ehhhhh.... yes, indeed. But Elona Shooter gives this most simple Gameplay (you have to defend your Castle with tons of mouseclicks) a fresh taste by adding RPG elements between the Missions. Upgrade the Weapons, improve your Homecastle - you can even hire new Members that defend your Castle. The Game itself is stupid as hell...but it
Like all the other Games that`ve been reviewed in the WTF Checkpoint, this one is also free available.
A TowerDefence game in an (Ultima-) fantasy Scenario. It becomes very difficult at the harder Stages, so be aware that this Game is a tough challenge. ;)
In this game you`re playing a Businessman with a giant Hammer. You smash Turtles and buy/combine different things to get the ultimate Combo. After ten minutes this Game turns out to be a Screensaver, `cause you can only hit the Turtles once - after that you`re forced to watch and watch and watch...! Sure, hell of a fun if you got no Gaming-skill at all (you don`t need it in "Epic Combo") :/
This Game`s perfect for you, if you like Final Fantasy/Chrono Trigger-kinda RPG`s. Huge, very well balanced, with a great sense of humor. But beware:; It`s Time-consuming like hell - and, of course, very much to read. Say goodbye to your Life. XD
Like all the other Games in the WTF-Checkpoint this one`s for free. Monsters` Den is a very nice RPG-Dungeoncrawler. The only thing is: it`s very repetitive (Fighting, looting, fighting, looting), there are no puzzles - like in the very old "Dungeon Master", "Eye of the Beholder" or "Wizardry" Games - and there are WAY too much Items too handle with. TONS.
This is an old school Shoot em up, that gets very repetitive after a while. But it isn`t bad at all: very nice graphics, plenty of Weapons to buy in the Shop - and a moderate difficult, that lets you rush through the whole Game without getting totally frustrated. ;)
