Jaguar XJ220 released

Post by Goldrunner »

You may have read elsewhere on the forum that Jaguar XJ220 has been released for the Atari ST. We would like to thank once again the programmer Andrew J. Buchanan for making the development version available and putting up with are constant questions. If you wish to know more about this almost lost game then visit Gaurdains at http://www.guardiansofthepast.co.uk

On a personal note I would like to thank the other members of the Guardians team for their tireless work in making Jagauar XJ220's inclusion on Guardians something extra special. Our goal was to release the game in a manner that both Andrew and the game deserved, to do this countless hours were spent on its database entry and its section in 'Software That Wasn't'. I think the team excelled themselves and it shows that we actually care when somerthing like this is entrusted to us. I really hope you all enjoy playing the game and lets hope more like this will surface in the future.

OK now THAT's excellent.
Even though the game isn't finished, to actualy see it running on ST is a real pleasure.
I mean i played it so much on a friend's Amiga back in the days!!

Hey, if someone wants to finish and polish this software, maybe i could contribute by re-arranging the marvelous groovy tunes by master Nuke (eheheh ;)) from .MOD to YM...
What do you say? :)

Hi,

Well it's the music that got me into the game! I'd love to hear the tracks in YM!
