Third-Party Conversions

Just realised, out of all the conversions to CD-i only two studios of the original IP converted it to the format!

Argonaut with Creature Shock and Codemasters with Micro Machines. Strikes me as odd is all :shock:

I thought Pete was working at Mirage when he converted Rise of the Robots on CD-i.

some to think about:
Gremlin made Litil Divil.
Coktel Vision made Inca.
Cryo made Lost Eden

In the credits you read sometimes "Thanks to...." people from Philips, but I thought they made the conversion by themselves. All third parties. All conversions. Perhaps with a bag of money from Philips, but still :)

No, those games I believe were produced 'at the same time' as the other versions. When I say conversion I mean an already successful game given the CD-i overhaul because Philips present a big bag of money scenario! :wink:

I enjoyed reading the Apprentice review. Excellent stuff. I agree without a doubt one of the most enjoyable games I have ever played. And it was HARD too, so big satisfaction upon completing it.

Thanks all go to Chris Adamson.

Can not praise up his reviews enough, even if I disagree with some of them! Especially the Mutant Rampage review which is a game I love for being so bizare yet not to Chris's liking! :wink:

Speaking of Pete, did you see the interview in Retro Games, in the last issue (or current issue here)? It was more focused on his homebrew efforts, rather than the CD-i. Rise of the Robots (and CD-ice) did get mentioned though.

No, but Retro Games is not sold here in The Netherlands (as far as I know), so I don't regularly read it. If it's interesting I order a copy from the publisher. So, any interesting info inside?
