Your 2012 Homebrew Highlight?
« on: December 30, 2012, 19:02:44 PM »
So homebrew fans what has been your favourite homebrew game released this year?

For me it's Impulse X on the Jaguar, I have been playing it regularly since I bought it!

Special mentions for Tube: SE (also Jaguar) and Zaku on the Lynx as I didn't play it until it was re-released earlier this year.

Well, technically it's an independant commercial game and not a homebrew, but since RVG doesn't split hairs about definitions I have to say Gunlord for Dreamcast.

Really an excellent game, a great homage to Turrican, and better designed overall than its famous role model imo.


Also there is Digger Chan for the Master System; it's a quirky little game, and the first real cartridge release of a homebrew on the system, which makes it special. I definitely hope for more homebrews on this great console in the future.

Yeah I really liked Gunlord too, I knew there was a Dreamcast game I was forgetting!!!
