    Nah. It was a 16-bit turn-based RPG (sorta).

    Lost Vikings was a epic game on Amiga. The honest truth is that dos based games in that time frame could not hold a candle to Amiga and some of the console derivatives.

    In this day and age I still think Ghosts & Ghoblins and Ghouls & Ghosts is probably the hardest games you could ever play. And then there are other games like Bubble Bobble & Bomb Jack etc. I finished Deus Ex Human Resolution the other day but I doubt I will ever finish those old arcade games.

    That's not the same as H.E.R.O., is it? If so, you can still get that one for Commodore and Atari emulators. I don't think that's what you're talking about, but I used to love that game.
    search abandonware sites such as http://www.romnation.net which btw is a legal site tince they list only abananded games and such and do remove all games under DMCA requests, hero is on there along with a bunch of others....

    Great thing about retro games, is they are now accessable!
