Re: Raptor: Call Of The Shadows...
I love those sorts of games!  :D

There was one I played during activity time at school... got pretty good but never could beat it... what was it called... AH-HAH I remember! Deimos Rising! Made it to the last level on my own, everyone else had to team up just to get there... :yes:

I wanna find that game!

God, it's been forever since I've seen that game...

The ruler of all scroller flying games was Zone 66, though.

Re: Raptor: Call Of The Shadows...
I have the demo version of R:CotS. Heh. Made up abbreviations are fun. I've beaten the whole first mission set, but then you have to quit because there isn't any more available. I could easily have registered, but it seems kind of pointless. Fun game, though.

I have kept my pilot file over the years and have probably gone through the game over 50 times by now.

Re: Raptor: Call Of The Shadows...
I LOVE this game.  I've had it for about 7 years now, and it still hasn't got old.  I probably went through close to 40 times.

At CP:  Holy S*** look at THAT!!  You could field a small air force with that!

Also:  Zone 66?  Why have I never heard of this game?

It's old. Very, very old. MS-DOS, before Windows 3.1 even, though only just. It was a free-range scroller instead of top or side. (Also had an anime-ish opening cinematic years before anybody'd ever heard of anime.) Had some of the best music ever, too. I have floppies for all the episodes, but no drive for them. If I did I could probably upload it, it's not very large I'm betting.

Re: Raptor: Call Of The Shadows...
Tyrian's better and Deimos Rising is also pretty good, but I'm personally more a fan of Cho Ren Sha. Raptor's still undeniably a classic, though.

Re: Raptor: Call Of The Shadows...
Well, if we're talking classics then somebody needs to bring up Raiden and Raiden II...oh, and 1942/1943 as well.
