I had a few ideas of games I could play on my Pandora after switching back to it... and then I remembered that I had Covert Action on Dosbox.
So Covert Action.
At the moment I'm playing the newly released CrossCode.
I can't wait to play it on the Pyra
Playing the zelda fangame Navi's Quest on the Pandora.
It's pretty good. It's nice to go back to the basics. Walk around the world, clear dungeons, access to new zones, etc. The dungeons are pretty well designed. They require some thinking, but they aren't too complex either. They're really the center of the game since there's not much in term of story and side-quests.
The main complaint I'd have would be that most of the improvements you can get come from a barter mechanism that imply a lot of back and forth on the overworld and even some grind, which isn't very interesting.
I hope it will run on the Pyra. As far as I understand they use web technology to run the game, which I guess isn't the optimal use of hardware resources. But the game would fit perfectly.
Sounds like an interesting way to play Shadow Warrior.
Elex, it is realy a great game
Played Metroid Fusion on the Pandora. It's very well designed but maybe a bit too formulaic. While I appreciated it I can't get enthusiastic about it.
In the same vein, I'm now playing Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (on the Pandora as well), and I'm reminded of what a masterpiece this is. The sprites and decors are gorgeous and even the 3D stuff doesn't detract from the experience, the music is amazing, the exploration is pretty well handled: you're never stuck too long and the backtracking is manageable. The gameplay is pretty solid, though the game gets too easy after a while. It could probably have done without the stats/equipement-upgrading (apart from what's needed to unlock new areas). Still having a lot of fun.
