It looks pretty good, not sure anyone really makes the most of the Hardware though.

Hmm, good? I think you are being diplomatically kind there. I’ve seen a video review of this latest title and the author really ripped into it. That, of course, is one mans view. From what I’ve seen of this title, it has a little promise in terms of concept but the whole thing looks very similar to the earlier Zombie and Food 64 titles in that it is a simple shoot em up. All that said, it is great that this chap is having a go at programming new titles for the Jag. However, wave one games do fall short of what others have produced in recent years. What this man needs is less production at expensive prices and more support in the form of testing, storyboards and dare I say mentoring by expert programmers. Then, his ideas can develop into more meaty titles that will excite the whole Jaguar community who will then be more willing to part with hard earned cash.
For the record, Alien verses Predator on the Atari Jaguar holds a Guinness World Record!

To remove any awkwardness, I have mesothelioma. I don’t seek sympathy, just acceptance. Thanks

Yeah, I guess I am all for supporting devs but there is a fine line between what is acceptable as a fully commercial product from a homebrewer.
