Weekly Contest: Who got game?

70 Comments

Does anyone else remember the good ol’ days of video games? I’m talking Duck Hunt. I’m talking Super Contra. I’m talking Ecco the Dolphin. Ok, not so much Ecco, but I think you know where my head’s at. With gaming on the BlackBerry becoming more and more popular, and some of the titles being incarnations of older titles, it lends some hope that these classics might just see the light of day again.

So, take a break from BrickBreaker and answer this week’s Weekly Contest question: What game from your past would you like to have on your BlackBerry and why? None of this Gears of War or Guitar Hero nonsense – please. We’re talking 8-bit goodness like ExciteBike and Clu Clu Land. This week’s best responder will walk away with the current Top 5 titles from BPlay that includes both Monopoly Tycoon and the incredibly addictive Bookworm. Good luck.

    Magmic makes fantastic games, they are very well made and designed, however they kinda get old real quick. I am not knocking magmic, it is just a limitation of what can be done mobile.

    The games that should be redone…or reincarnated imho are…

    JEZZBALL!!! – W95
    Chips Challenge – W95
    Legend of Zelda – NES
    Excite Bike- Original Gameboy.
    Little Nemo- NES
    Double Dragon – NES
    Jungle, Urban, Desert Strike- NES,Genesis,SNES
    RC – Pro AM – NES, Gameboy, SNES

    If it is possible, a game should mimic an awesome pc game called “ignition” If we can get a birds eye view of car racing with different terrains, cliffs, pits… and have a boost function I would play the bb all day.

    These games should have a save feature where you can pick up where you left off. Some games should take advantage of the new trackball for controls.

    I would love to see a labyrinth type game where all you need is the trackball.

    I have to agree with Krad for the following games:

    Jezzball
    Chip’s Challenge

    I’ll also like to play a pool game. A memory card flipping over game. A RPG game like Final Fantasy Tactics or Shining Force.

    And, finally, I’d like to play Tower Defence game:
