Peter Pan is a special copyright case. It isn't out of copyright in the UK, and may never be. It was given a special exemption in the late 80s to allow the copyright to extend indefinitely. That poses problems for worldwide online release, such as GOG is committed to.
Thanks, I wasn't aware of the country-of-origin special case. From what I read it sounds to be a more charitable instance than the perpetual extensions that Disney agitates for in the US copyright system.
If you're saying Phantasie III was "easily the best" as a personal opinion, then I respect that.
Having not played any of them, I was largely going from what I remembered from the press in my Amiga days. Obviously that was of limited scope, since only the third title even made it to the Amiga. I'm sorry I didn't have the first title on my C64, as it looks like it would have been fun to play back in the day. Anyway, it's good to know the earlier titles have merits, though obviously they would need to be released in emulator format if GOG picked them up.
As for the latest list... Pushover
- Opinion previously stated. :) Railroad Tycoon Deluxe
- Seems like just about any Sid Meier game is a safe bet for management game fans, and this doesn't look like an exception. Rampart
- An entertaining game, ported to tons of systems and with an easy to pick up style of play. Ravenloft
- Good D&D titles to have, with a nice thematic variant on the usual fantasy setting. Rick Dangerous
- A serviceable platformer, I didn't get into on the Amiga like some folks, but it popped up a lot in the mags. Core Design in general did decent games, and this remains playable, if to me unremarkable. Rise of the Dragon
- "He say you blade runner." This game wears its inspiration on its sleeve (hell, over its whole body), but that doesn't make it necessarily bad. I like the idea of bringing more story-driven adventures to GOG, so this is a potential candidate, but I'd really have to play it afresh before saying it's worth the effort. Risky Woods
- A pretty but shallow platformer, coming at the time when these were all the rage on the Amiga. I'm sure it's still playable today, but the lack of depth may make it seem more of slog than an adventure to modern gamers. When it comes to combat platformers, I'd much prefer to see First Samurai
get a release here. It's beautiful, clever, and deeper than if first appears.
