Oooh oooh! I got another!

Xenophobe

I really wish that game had got a sequel, it's the best Aliens game out there without having a license.
:-) Objection! what about Alien Breed Amiga or Alien Swarm (Unreal T.2004 Mod PC)? or C64 Project Firestart?

Alien Breed is good (as is Alien Thing on the ST) but I prefer Xenophobe. Especially on the Lynx via Comlynx!!!!

I always wish that Atari had made more use of Bentley Bear, he would have made a great mascot for the company.

There are so many Atari arcade games I would have liked to have seen sequels too like I Robot, Major Havoc, Robot Monsters, Peter Pack Rat, Thunderjaws, Skull & Crossbones and Rampart. In fact especially Rampart, they could have taken that concept much further with inland as well as coastal battles and taken it through the ages too. Sometimes I think Atari were too busy trying to come up with another original and innovative game when they could have been improving upon the formula of an existing one.

Bentley Bear really was indeed a character that could easily have been a great mascot for Atari.  I wonder if they ever considered the idea.

My take:

Trouble with mascots is they get milked...to death!

Crash on PS1 appears in Karting game, (as does Sonic which is bloody daft as he runs fast, that's whole point, so why would he..ohh well you get the idea) as has Sackboy (LBP) has'nt he? (i hate LBP but sure the cloth twat popped up in a kart racer), they appear in Tetris clones, Tennis games, fighters, hack n slash games, you name it.

Would have loved to have seen I, Robot get the '2000' treatment on Jaguar.Original game I, Robot+ and I, Robot 2000 all on same cart.


Same with Rampart (and that's a superb idea of game advancing through the ages, kinda like way Mega-Lo-Mania did it, have each new era get better tech so field guns replaced cannons, introduction of tanks, aircraft etc)

Technically, it's been done.



Sure, they're not game mascots, but... hey, here's a game that needs a sequel!

Wild Guns (SNES) - HARD - No Death Run - Stage 1

So this is Wild Guns, which is basically what happens when you take Cabal & Blood Brothers and make it as awesome as it can get. I mean, it's the Wild West. And there's giant robots. That should be all you need to play it, but it's also really, really fun. I can't think of much a sequel would add, honestly, but the way I see it, more of a good thing is never something I'd turn down.

Here's a video looking at a wish list of games that these folks wish had sequels...

A game I think would be fun to see some sort of sequel to is Klax!  The original game is tons of fun but I bet someone could come up with ways of making it even better in a sequel.

Good shout, I always wondered why Atari Games in the Tengen years seemed to shy away from making sequels.

Escape From The Planet Of The Robot Monsters, Xybots, Klax, STUN Runner, Pit-Fighter, Skull & Crossbones, Steel Talons, A.P.B., Toobin', Rampart and 720 Degrees (of the top of my head) should have all had follow ups.

All those games certainly were good enough to deserve sequels.  A STUN Runner sequel would have been fantastic!
