Retro Remakes (games)

Recommended Posts

 hey all,there are quite a lot of zx spectrum game (and others) that were remade for PC with miles better colour graphics and sound.

from atic atac,sabrewulf,pssst,cookie through to klassof99 (a skooldaze remake) and others like the excellent emudx of donkey kong,frogger etc

there's one I'm holding out for which has never been remade which I would love to see and that was Rollercoaster by Elite for the zx. It was one of my all time faves on the sinclair.

I'll put the ones I know about here as time goes by and guys feel free to add any you find or know about,thanks.I'll start with this one Booty

NOTE:
Files posted here incase that site ever goes down, it is nearly 15 years since it was last udpated from what I can see - these are too good not to have and I have taken them from a backup disk I had - all tested on Windows 10.

It's such a shame that it's been so long since these were updated - The Andy Noble games are excellent.Just downloading the Booty game as this was one of my favourites Speccy games.

here's a fan based remake of Street Fighter a classic capcom title, its made using the m.u.g.e.n game engine .

the thing about this one is it lets you fight with ANY of the fighters from the original ,not just ken or ryu.

this lets you fight with lee,birdie,retsu,mike,geki,joe,eagle,gen,adon & sagat. it only incorporates 4 buttons light,hard kick,punch instead of the true arcade 6 button which included medium kick,punch and doesn't include the bonus stages where you smash the stone blocks, you know the ones.

never the less if you liked Street Fighter you'll love this one,the link is at the youtube video in descriptions

a really nice remake of the original Donkey Kong on the fabulous emudx which was a bit tricky to get working in combination with using dosbox,then there was a windows exe but I found it to be a bit difficult to get the screen resolutions correct, it was good tho but. anyway eventually i stumbled across Raine32 version rainew-0.64.15. which worked on my system which made it a lot easier to use. really really sorry but I'm not going to post links for this one because about nintendo being a bit like their being, you know lately (which is understandable,I do get where they're coming from even though I'm not happy about it). so this is just a steer to things out there that you may not have come across and I'll leave you to research by yourselves if you so wish to desire. there are 5 games in total which  include frogger,galaxian,pac-man,ms pacman (or is it ms pacwoman lol )  with a dx revamp.I think but I'm not certain you need the correct roms in order for it to work (mame ones) but as mame has been updated that many times, a lot of the roms only work for certain versions of mame.and I don't know if the latest version of mame roms (is it 0.198 or 0.203) will work with emudx and raine32. you have to mess about with this one unfortunately as you do with Pc's sometimes but worth the effort in this case anyway here are some lovely screenshots of the emudx in action

FME trivia:- The naming of the full graphic layouts using real machine artwork was called a DX because of this emulator. At the time I did Viva Espana every layout was in the classic style and I had been playing EmuDX and thought the graphical enhancement to the FME layouts were fitting of the DX label and its stuck ever since. I think MikeDX who wrote emuDX was also around on the FME sites at the time as well

hah interesting ,so that's where it comes from, dx being deluxe I take it ,is that right ?  thanks for the info Gary

I've become quite partial to Dx's per say also I'd like to thank MikeDX for his amazing emu and donkey kong dx rendition, love it so much
