Games you would like to see made for the Turbo?
« on: September 27, 2023, 12:01:24 AM »

1:   DooM!
   A demake of course, but I think it can be done.  Nothing groundbreaking, but something better than Silent Debuggers and Faceball.

2:  Might & Magic - World of Xeen.
   The third installment came out great on the system, and with the Arcade Card I think a faithful port is possible.

3:  An action roguelike.
   Possibly a blend of Dungeon Explorer I & II, with the isometric view of Goetzendiener.

   Any others you may have thought of?

Does translations of PC Engine games count?  There were a lot of games released that have yet to be easily playable in English that I'd love to see.  I'd particularly like to see the Far East of Eden games and any of the nontranslated Falcom games in English.

I can't imagine that Doom would be great, though Faceball ain't that bad; maybe a port to PC-FX?

Gotzendiener 2, finished and not half assed?  Fuck yeah, sign me up!

And I agree about more translations.  There's some sweet games that I'd love to play (or replay) in English - FEoE, Cosmic Fantasies, Xanadus, Anearth, Dragon Slayer 2, and Arunamu no Kiba come to mind.

I'd wager that Doom wouldn't be worse on PC FX than it is on SNES.  Take that however you want it.

DooM demakes exist.  Here are just a couple:

So yes, I do think a decent one could be made for the PCE.  And definitely arcade card!

Also, how about taking that conversion of NES Jackal, and make it a CD game with the soundtrack from here:

How about a hack of Vasteel that lets the bullets travel the full length of the screen?

Wish they would have done Pocky and Rocky better on the PCE

I'd love to see some kind of deckbuilder game on the TG16. Something like Slay the Spire or Star Realms. I bet they'd be fun to play on an Express.  :pcgs:

Might and Magic IV would've been awesome, but did you know the 1992 classic port (the remake of the original) was finally english patched!?!?
