Sly 2 doesn't seem to have an issue with double jump or camera angles, however as enjoyable as it is being predominantly for kids it's far to easy.

Played a couple of retro titles last night.

Road Blasters - Used to think it was great when I was younger. Sadly it's not aged very well.

Kung Fu Master - Still awesome, still rock hard.

Kung Fu Master was indeed a thing of rare beauty. Even though I was piss poor at it I always felt the fault was mine when I died rather than the game being unfair which is why I kept playing. It's one of my fondest gaming memories and I've bought many games down the years trying to regain the feeling of playing it.

Found my old N64, with all the leads and everything. Except I can't find any of my games. Fucksake.

Wait, Kung Fu on the NES was a port? Mind blown.

Road Blasters was one of those games that kind of lived and died by it's steering wheel.

Got the NES version of this with a NES Advantage. Amazing game.

The Atari 2600 version is a work of art, though. Getting the VCS to capture that much of the gameplay must have been a real nightmare.

That is pretty strawberry floating amazing for an atari port, way ahead of the curve in terms of the games I have seen on the system.

Kung Fu master reminds me of the rock hard Vigilante. Nigh on impossible game.

Vigilante is a quality game, but yes it's rock hard. A lot of trial and error.

For a time there used to be a Vigilante cab in our local cafe in the hometown where I grew up.

I must confess I've been playing Crash Bandicoot all over again, which I bought on the PS3 for a few quid. Truth be told the D-pad control is tedious and I wish it used the analogue stick. But it's a good little game after all these years!

According to Wiki it's actually a spiritual sequel of sorts. I didn't realise that.

I mean, now that you mention it and I see them side by side, yeah, it makes perfect sense. Especially given that they both came from Data East.

But then, when I think of Vigilante, this is what pops into my head.

Is that the same game as the "classic coin-op"? Because if so, then they definitely outsourced that cover production. To someone who'd clearly never played the game.
