Diary of an Amiga fanatic

Tag Archives: Hudson Hawk

The weekend has arrived and I really hoped I would have received my EasyNet PCMCIA Wireless Card from AmigaKit by now. But it has not arrived and with the time being the afternoon while normally we get packages early in the morning I have given up hope it would still arrive today. Having had all the time in the weekend to play with it I could have really maximized it’s use but I would have to wait till next weekend since during the week I would not have any time for it. While waiting for it to arrive I dreamed up all the things that suddenly would be possible. With high on Nr. 1 the ability to get access to unlimited amounts of games and write them back to a floppy disk and play all those great games. This would also allow me to write massive amounts of game reviews. One review I wanted to do was about Lethal Weapon. I saw a review in a magazine the other day which said nothing but positive things. My recollection of it was that it was not a very good game. It is just stuck in my mind that it was not very good so I want to give it a good try again to see if I still feel the same about. I might have given it a quick try back in the day and it was not just my kind of game for that moment.

Lethal Weapon Mission 1

Coincidently Old School Game Blog did a review about this game just when I started writing this column. I suggest you head over there and read the review.

Currently I am laying the groundwork for the new disk magazine that I am going to create in Amos. I am depending on the network card so that I can move stuff to the Amiga that I will be needing for it. But for now I can brush up my knowledge about Amos. I have Amos Basic 1.3 installed on my Amiga 1200 so I already can try out some stuff. It surely brings back some great memories. While going through my huge amount of floppy disks I noticed Hudson Hawk and it suddenly hit me that I might have confused those horrible controls with Lethal Weapon. Did Hudson Hawk not have those horrible controls? That when you moved left or right it sort of kept going even when you wanted it to stop? Like being on an icy underground. Or did I confuse it with The Blues Brothers? I will dive deeper into this once I have the time for it. Let’s hope that when I write next week’s column I have the network card and can do a nice story on it.
