Thread: Walker [ Old Game 1993] [a Classic]

  1. #1
    im looking for this game to play on my xp? if thats possible.
    i believe it was originally released by amiga (not 100% sure)

    its basically You play as a huge Walker, a robot that looks like one of those huge bots from Robocop movies. It is armed with two huge machine guns capable of destroying everything, from infantry to tanks and aircrafts. You get attacked by multiple enemies on each screen so its a platformer type of shoot-em-up with some heavy music in the background to get u in the mood for some killin. A classic back then. so if u dont know it then u really havnt lived the gaming experience.

    controls are: cursor for moving left/right and mouse for aim/shoot.

    this is one of the reviews i found if it helps:
    Title: Walker OCS
    Style: Action
    Publisher: Psygnosis, in 1993
    Screenshots: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
    Review: Not an ordinary shooter game. It has very good graphics design, and animated intro. There are some cool music with digitalized sound effects, as bonus. You travel with your super devastator robot machine and have to stop war, in all ages. It starts at World War II in Berlin...

    Oh yeah it's an amiga classic.

    I've got the original game and box with me now.

    You'll need an amiga emu.

    And a copy of workbench I think, there should be plenty around of both, finding a working copy of the game would be harder though.

    I just though about this game the other day, since I've got no working amiga at the mo' a conversion or something would be excellent.

    I'm afraid I haven't done the emulation thing for a long time now.

    Used to be much harder.

    However start with thishttp://www.codepoet.com/amiga.htm

    and this (you need kickstarts to get it working) http://www.meanbean.8k.com/amiga.htm

    I'll try looking around for walker.

    Here are other emulators: http://www.pure-emu.com/index.php/emulators/amiga


    An' here's walker http://amiga.supergamez.hu/EngIntroSet.html

    You'll have to figure out what to do with it all though.


    I can't seem to get the WinUAE Windows Edition emulator link to work, but I'd say that's the one to get. Comes with OS and everything.

    ok thanks..im gonna give it try and then get back to u. this could take some while if i run into truoble and proaably even longer if i manage to get it up and running lol [ thats if the game is still as addictive as it was back then ]

    u woudnt happen to know if there is any similar type of game been released that have the same hi-quality gaming experience as this? it would be great if there is.

    There's nothing quite like it as far as I remember.

    But I remember that cannon fodder had some of the same feel to it.

    But that's about the same as the snes version except for the sound which isn't as good on snes, and snes emu:s and roms are much easier to get.

    Okay, full Amiga Emulation... you'll need these to get started:
    Amiga In A Box (AIAB) & WinUAE

    You'll also need a Workbench and various utilities, and here is a Kickstart ROM Locator.

    Theres a good amount of games on this page.
    Tons of free and shareware can be found on Aminet

    Or, if your the lazy type, you could just buy Amiga Forever

    Nice unzi

    The kickstart I've found, the workbench is supposed to come with WinUAE

    So if your links work for win UAE(mine seem dead now) he should be all set.

    which kickstart did u get? the latest version is Kickstart 3.1 but i cant find that anywhere except at 'amiga forever' which costs.

    i did find kick12.zip [kick12.rom] and kick20.zip [kick20.rom]
    note: brackets indicate file inside the zip file

    what do i do with this? i have installed InstallWinUAE0821R2.exe.
    so now i have the game the kickstart ...all in rom..what im confused!!
