Ironman Challenge III


A couple of years ago, I asked Mike (of The New Retro Show) to play some Atari ST games. An alternative selection that I knew would push this bloke to his limits - it was especially fun watching him endure Fire And Brimstone!!

Two years is long enough, so I challenged him for a third "Ironman" video which he agreed to! So I picked games from the PD/Shareware scene, four platformers and three conversions of arcade classics: Clod Hopper, Crapman, Frogger, Hector vs The Mutant Vampire Tomatoes From Hell, Hoog, Space Monsters and Winglord.

I would like to thank Mike for this fun challenge, which I have really enjoyed. Oh, and this video is actually an early-screening just for Atari ST gamers and it will not be made public until this Wednesday!! One more thing... Mike, I've got some cool (and cruel) ideas for a fourth challenge if you're interested? Go on, I dare ya!

  
Three belters: Winglord (Atari STe), Crapman and one of the latest games released for the ST, Frogger!

 
Hoog is one mightily impressive jaw-dropping platformer and Clod Hopper feels so authentically 8Bit.

 
Hector... must be one of the best titles ever and who doesn't love a fantastic conversion of Panic?

  1. Good choice of games. Despite his ability, those games made him sweat a lot. Special mention to hoog 😁! I enjoyed watching this new ironman challenge. Thanks.

    1. heh he did sweat it at times! His Hoog was a demo I think, it started on a level that was way too hard, which was a shame. Plus the resolution on another was off, Clod Hopper iirc. Glad you enjoyed it mate, it's just something new and silly plus I enjoy putting Mike through it. Great chap.

  2. You put him beyond his limits indeed. I hope he is not upset now lol. He is used to playing different styles of games through his vids some easy, other really hard. You just helped to soap the step 😁
