Unfortunately Cinemaware is now owned by former-crapware-turned-Flash-game producers eGames, so I'm not sure how easy it would be to secure the rights, nor how much eGames would want to make from the deal.

We are starting up dialogue with a couple of license holders and we'll see if they're gonna be succesful. Right now I can't promise you any Cinemaware titles, but we'll try our best.

Absolutely!

Dun... dun duun dun... DOUBLE SCORE DUNGEON!

Although this one would make me especially sad that there's no 2 player mode. (As if Kikstart 2 didn't do that already...)

If you've got rights to all the Commodore titles, Hunt The Wumpus would make for an excellent freebie (Ran in BASIC, I don't think it had any graphics past the title screen.)

Awesome. Thanks for the consideration.

Wizard of Wor was a great arcade game. The home computer ports weren't bad either -- I certainly wouldn't turn it down.

I think Scarnie is being "economical with the truth"

Count me as another Wizard of Wor fan. The c64 version is quite faithful to the arcade ..really it's only missing the background starfield. I love the dramatic music. And think of how cool this and Kickstart will be when (!) you guys decide to do link-up support for multiplayer! hehe.

The odd thing with the arcade machine was it had joysticks with two degrees of movement in each of the four directions. So you could, for example, half-move the stick to the left to turn left without your man moving. The c64 version doesn't emulate this in any way, but that's no big loss IMHO.

Anyone who likes Wizard of Wor and has access to an AGA Amiga or WinUAE should check out Monsters of Terror. A beautiful remake, with support for up to four players (human or CPU.) ..it does have an annoying bug where the CPU players' movement gets screwed up at the beginning of some levels. But still, a great game. ..the SFX are all sampled from the C64 Wizard of Wor, GFX are completely new, there are optional powerups and bosses, speech has been added, and it even multitasks.

Oh, I forgot to mention last time: About the cool Ballblazer music (which really is cool.) I found a neat Ballblazer Beastie Boys Remix at RKO. I'm not really a Beastie Boys fan, but love the remix nonetheless.
