Amiga Tribute: Ruff 'N' Tumble by LukeTheRipper Amiga Tribute: Ruff 'N' Tumble by LukeTheRipper
Ruff Rogers from Ruff 'N' Tumble.

Part 12/24 of my Amiga tribute project >3

This time some run 'n' gun action from one of my all time Amiga favs, Ruff 'N' Tumble
This is hands down one of the most action packed games from it's time, when "run 'n' gun platformers" were pretty popular. Taking the best from various platformers such as Mario or Sonic, combining it with some badass gun action such as Metal Slug, proved to be one hell of a great combo, and when it comes to such games, very few can measure to R'N'T, well, these weren't as deep and vast as Metroid, they did rise a step above mere scrolling, arcade style shooters like Contra.
One thing that made it stand out, was the fact you could aim your gun, and as laughable as it may sound, not many games back then had such an option, moreover, it had some of the greatest graphics seen in a video game at that time, the hero, the enemies, the gunfire effects, and most notably, the whole environment, it was all some impressive work.
Also worth mentioning is the soundtrack, the indutrial metal(ish) tunes were as badass as such an action-packed game deserved, and made it all the more enjoyable to shoot the beejesus out of your enemies ^^

Hehe, the only "bad" thing about this game, is that it was never remade... though considering how terrible Superfrog got, and Flashback, while good, wasn't as good as the original, that might be a good thing |D
There was a fanmade project to remake this game, however it's been many years back, and is most likely dead...

Anyways, I strongly urge you to try it out yourselves (emulation), or at the very leats watch the playthrough or listen to the OST, trust me, it's worth it ^^

Całkiem możliwe, ze posłużył za inspirację dla twórców R'N'T, aczkolwiek jest duzo bardziej wszechstronny XD

może to i lepiej że nikt tej gry nie zbezcześcił. Kiedyś sporo się w nią zagrywałem, muzyka wymiata - świeć Panie nad duszą Richarda Josepha. Grafika też stała na wysokim poziomie. Uwielbiałem biegać tak szybko z karabinem przy generatorach robotów że niszczone roboty zamiast monet wypluwały powerupy :)

Well, tak własciwie to jakkolwiek by Richard Joseph nie był ważny dla Amigowej sceny muzycznej, za muzyke w R'N'T odpowiadał Jason Page |3

Heh, no i o ile dobrze, że nikt nie zbezcześcił, to nigdy sie nie dowiemy, czy akurat R'N'T by sie nie poszcześciło jak np. Giana Sisters |3

Z remake'ami bywa różnie, jednym pasują innym nie. Może to i lepiej że R'n't nikt nie ruszył. Ostatnio widziałem próbę zrobienia nowego Stridera - przerobienie platformówki arcade na metroidvanie nie zawsze wychodzi dobrze. Choć sam styl w kilku lokacjach był niezły :)

Hehe, miło by było jakby ktoś chociaż zrobił fanowskiego porta na PC tak jak Superfrog'a |3
Względnie HD remix by nie zabolał (HD remix, nie HD remake), zaś ta grafika przepuszczona przez HD filtr byłaby naprawdę imponująca.

Zaś co do Stridera, dopoki gra nie wyjdzie, to wstrzymam się z oceną... choć jeśli zajmuje sie tym Double Helix (którzy raczej nie są znani z robienia dobrych gier) to mam więcej obaw niż nadziei |D

Fanowski port się robił, ale projekt chyba został porzucony. Była nawet wersja pod przeglądarkę ale widzę że link nie działa :( recordedamigagames.ath.cx/ruff/
Dobra myśl :) generalnie łatwo wydać ocenę a w grę nie grać.

Well, fanowski projekt związany z R'N'T to wlaśnie ten HD remix, o którym wspomniałem w opisie arta ;3
Niestety, od dobrych paru lat projekt stoi w miejscu, i coś nie sądze, by ruszył |3

Hehehe, thanks, that's part of what made the main character look so badass , a gun almost as big as him >D
When you add the fact his gun is one of the multi-ammo ones, and can shoot bullets, laser beams, rockets, or be used as a flamethrower, yeah, it really gets kickass >3

That reminds me, I really must get my A1200 down from the loft and play some good old miggy games. :)
