Looks like "lost in translation" in french with cheese...

Seems to be like that everytime someone goes in a foreign country.
Le havre wasn't the place I would have adviced to visit. There are so many nicer place to see in France.
Maybe you should have ask here before planing your trip. Even some Paris inhabitants outta here would have guide you. Paris is always full crowded. It's the most visited town in the world. So....
But I agree, the metro is one of the most horrible thing to use in summertime. Heat and smells.  :?

And about cheese, believe it or no, it's one the thing (with wine) that makes me think "thank god, I live in France". Especially when I come back from a trip in a foreign country.

If you want some advice, feel free to ask !


Bruce Lee was one of my favourite game ever on C64.
I could finish it with one life so I guess it wasn't that hard.
Thanks for the tip I didn't know about the sequel.
Can't wait to try it!
This is much harder because of the long jump. Then, some stage are difficult to achieve.
Give it a try, laser stage and moving plate are really difficult in this sequel.
I've gone crazy when I came to these !

Overall, I was talking about nowadays difficulty against difficulty of that time.


try to contact aspic on gamoover...

...which is also member here  ;)
true !

so many gamoover moderators out there

Hi there,

I've just falled on this :

It's a homebrew sequel to the classic of 1984 available on the 8bits computer of that time.
graphics, sounds and music are completely in the legacy of its ancestor.
I played with it for more than 2 hours today with this.
Difficulty is like the one of 1984 : really hard but there's an infinite lives mode (thank god!)

Some gfx were enhanced like the enemies : ninja is more coloured, sumo isn't there anymore,
but there is clones of the enemy featuring in 'enter the dragon' movie :
*Williams character, played by Jim Kelly (who just died 2 weeks ago)
He's the black karateka with that funky blaxploitation touch
*O'Hara, played by Robert Wall.
He's the white evil one who kills his opponent.

In fact, I think also that this character has a kind of "chuck norris" touch  :lol:

tips : play with keyboard and remap the keys like in 1985:
up, down, left, right and punch/kick (A,Q,O,P,Space)
< and > keys like the amstrad CPC isn't convenient anymore :D

Really great work, so good to play such brilliant game

I didn't notice the 3d rendering of the marquee.
Pictures usually fools you and aspect in real is much acceptable.
Can't imagine how cool the tron corner in your game room is by now.  :-*

Good work, Bruno !

With the black light making those blue lights glowing in the dark is so fantastic.   :-*

Even a bit too much, seems that the marquee looks a bit fade out compared to the brand new gears.
it's detail, and in front of the cab, i'm sure it's not even noticeable.

flynn lives !

outstanding  :spaceace: :spaceace: :spaceace:

what happen to starblade?? :o

In fact it is now just used as door to hide the toilet access :

And also as background decoration item :

Just kidding, it was up & running into the V1 area, that is more a workshop and and baby-sitting room by now :

this explains why we weren't there that much...

Such a great afternoon, very tired at the end of the day, but hey...

..we were there !!!

I agree belike : V1 and V2 were already such great experience.
V3 is at least twice much more exciting. You can't take yours eyes
of these beautiful cabs all around.

It's even weird to see V1 as the workshop place.

So again, thank you so much for your warm invitation.
 :spaceace:  :spaceace:  :spaceace:

Merci à votre gentillesse et votre accueil.

Belgium rules !

A good source, easy to remember :

The arcade manual database.

Nice clean up and restoration.
I remember playing this game in late 80ies on generic cab.
Dedicated cab is way better looking.
This game is really nice to enjoy  with its rotating pseudo 3D engine.
