No Continues is One Life Left’s off-season weekly book / game club. Each week the team discuss three different games that incorporate a single theme. Last week’s theme was ‘Simulation’. You can listen to Episode 3 here.
Next week’s theme is ‘Platforms’. The three games chosen for dissection by NC this week are:
1. Chuckie Egg (A&F Software, 1983)
Play it here: http://www.repton3.co.uk/
2. Super Mario World (Nintendo, 1990)
Best played on the SNES, of course, but you'll be able to emulate it with no problem (assuming you own the original, of course, or whatever the spurious piracy-enabling reason du jour is). There are remakes and reissues available for the Game Boy Advance, Wii and GameCube, so I'd favour those if you can't find the original cartridge.
3. Knytt Stories (Nifflas, 2007)
Play it here: http://nifflas.ni2.se/?page=Knytt+Stories
Play, listen and contribute to the show live on Resonance 104.4FM at 7pm on Monday evening, or we’ll see you back here for the podcast.
