Hi, just a quick bump from me. I'll be starting work on a brand new batch of videos next week, so hopefully you'll get to see many more reviews by next weekend. This time the focus will be on lesser known / lesser played games.
There will also be a feature on whichever games get selected in the Lemon/EAB knockout competition - so stay tuned for that.
Here's a couple more videos, with more coming soon. _ Really excitied. Hope you enjoy these.
Alien Fish Finger
A playthru guide(*) to the first five levels of the latest 1.31 version of this game, highlighting some tactical elements and many of the secret locations and treasures to be found. The footage has been Speeded Up so as to fit as much action in as possible. Widescreen stretched.
(*) Originally made for the knockout round of the compo!
Roll Or Die
A playthru of all four levels, with a complete run-thru of the (very hard) final level. We also get to see the intro and extro credits, along with a general review. This game is rather politically incorrect - so be aware of this before viewing! They don' make 'em like this anymore...
A look at Yogi and the Greed Monster, a full playthru of Yogi's Great Escape, and a look at the first level of Yogi's Big Cleanup - all by HiTec Software. These kids games are often rather easy but also sometimes highly enjoyable, so watch out for what's HOT and what's NOT in the world of the Hanna-Barbera Amiga conversions.
A Playthru guide with hints and tips on how best to tackle this very skillful train sim. We play thru most of the levels on the 'A' game (sometimes speeded up for time) and some of the harder sets on the later levels.

Is it Cannon Fodder from start to finish?
Sounds like a good one any way. _________________ A1200T, Apollo 1260, 32MB RAM, 3.1 ROMS, 4GB HD, Z4 Board, Picasso II, IOBlix (Serial/Parallel), Squirrel SCSI, 2X CD, IDE 100MB Zip Drive, OS - DOpus Magellan II. Plus an A500+ Yum.

When did you start using the light pen? I was like, eh?, aah, cool. You do realise now you have to do a Speedball 2 review and pause the game to draw on specific plays, and generally wax lyrical about what players should be doing. Circle the racists etc. _________________
I first used it on the Vroom playguide to highlight the tire damage button and to write silly things on screen. It's also used in the coming Lotus 1 and Pinball Dreams reviews, but it really stands out in AFF.

I may just do that! But there are many videos between here and there - maybe next year, eh? Should be a good review that one
NOTE: I'll post all my lesser known games in the panel above to keep them all together. Please check back on this page regularly; as updating an old post won't bump the thread on the title/new threads page.
Please keep those comments rolling in! I love your feedback...
I changed my mind, I'll put the 'Lesser Known' games in the panel but I'll keep the others separate to encourage comments. Here's the latest:
Pinball Dreams - A 10 Million playthu Guide and Review
This was created a couple of weeks ago in anticipation of this game being included in the Lemon/EAB knockout compo. It features an example of me trying to score 10 million on all four tables (I didn't know which would get picked for the compo) with a special look at the Nightmare table. On Nightmare, we get to see two scoring methods - the 'Midnight' method and the general table method, along with a few 'lightpen' pointers and stuff. Hope you find these tips useful. The review ends with a look at Future Pinball for the PC. Thanks for watching!

Nice one lifeschool on Pinball Dreams.
I picked it up after playing Pinball Fantasy which was my 1st mistake... With Stones and Bones being my most loved table of them all I found it very hard to step back to more basic tables and for that reason I never did play it past the point of loading it up to have a look.
So thanks for my Second LOOK.
And wow I never knew about Pinball Future. Looks amazing!
I would also like to add just in case. Did you ever experiment with using Tilt when using the flippers to add more weight behind the ball? What I found very true with Pinball Fantasy is that using tilt with the flippers you could, with practice have more control of the ball and do things you wanted to do on demand. You could nail every ramp without the ball rolling back and clock up some real major high scores. Controlling the ball was more fun than waiting for gravity to do it's thing.
If you were doing so and I did not notice this in the vid because my eyes suck first thing in the morning then my bad. Sorry.
Nice production once again! _________________ A1200T, Apollo 1260, 32MB RAM, 3.1 ROMS, 4GB HD, Z4 Board, Picasso II, IOBlix (Serial/Parallel), Squirrel SCSI, 2X CD, IDE 100MB Zip Drive, OS - DOpus Magellan II. Plus an A500+ Yum.
Yes, controlling the ball with the tilt feature is possible, but if you use it more than 5 or 6 times it locks the table / flippers so you can't play. For this reason I keep all my 'tilts' until the ball falls down the side trap in the hope I can rescue it from disaster - which works perhaps one time on 10. Thanks for your comment Why not join us in the knockout compo? You are more than welcome.
Welcome back Shawn! Excellent to see you commenting again! Thanks for your kind words. I really appreciate the feedback I get from doing this; as up until this year I never did anything like this before - and was worried my voice just sounds too goddam boring!
I'm always happy to consider new reviews for the new year. So far I've half-promised Gods to someone, Speedball 2 (with play tips), and now we have K240. To be honest I've never played this game before, but from the looks of it it looks very much like Supremacy (check it out - well worth it!) or similar space empire builder. I'm glad it isn't an RPG - I'm not a fan of those - I'll let Matt Chat sort them out 'cus Matt loves RPGs. Anyway, I'll certainly see what I can do, but don't hold your breath as it may take me some time to get the hang of the game ready for a playguide. Don't forget though, if you'd like to make/upload your own video(s) you know how to access the Lemontubesite same as me. All contributions welcome.
Hope to see you in the compo sometime
Floor 13? That looks a very hard to get into mate. I'd have to follow the walkthru. I'm not opposed to the idea by any means, but it is so much easier if I know the game first. I'll certainly consider it though.
Hey my friends, thanks for the comment! I will almost certainly be playing some Pinball for the comp!
I strongly second a Gods review. Look forward to your next vid _________________ Never trust a man with a mustache...
Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge (Hard Levels) - A Playthu Guide and Review
Well, well, what a surprise! This week we've got a special look at Lotus 1's hard levels in preparation for the Lemon/EAB games compo. It features all 15 of the 'Hard' levels of the game, with a few play tips and hints on certain aspects, as well as the usual speed comparisons and graphics comparisons to other ports of the game. We end with a look at the hidden bonus game within Lotus 1, and a quick look at my 'Forced NTSC' version. Thanks again for viewing this! - all comments welcome
