    Thanks Chris! What does a Chewit taste like? I'm afraid they never made it to these shores…

    Great job on both the play and the podcast review. I always enjoy episodes that go on longer than just the usual 30 minutes.

    This is one of the games that made me buy an Amiga. Really impressive at the time.

    Loved the little "Get outta here" that Aaron says at 13:07. Very funny.

    Have you ever played Wrath of the Demon? David Whittaker composed the soundtrack for this too and it's all very SotB in the pan pipes department.

    Then there's the scrolling text narration and combat and themes and and intro, that all scream Psygnosis.

    Oh and the game starts with a horseback subgame which is just like the one in Back to the Future III, also released in 1991.

    Where do you draw the line between homage and blatent rip off?

    Dreamkatcha, this sounds like great fodder for its own post! 🙂 The world demands side by side comparison screenshots of Wrath of the Demon and Back to the Future III!
