The Atari Jaguar Game by Game Podcast

Dec 13, 2016
16 - Zool 2

Serious ninjas in a cruel Krool world: play as Zool or Zooz to banish Krool's shape-shifting henchman Mental Block from six crazy worlds in this challenging and cartoony platform game on the Jaguar. In this episode, I cover a little history of Gremlin Interactive, describe the colorful levels and inventive enemies, list some amusing instrument names from the .mod file metadata, and gush about cheat codes.

Also included in this episode is some excellent feedback from Lost Dragon, Wade, Jon, and Doctor Clu!

Stick around after the Zool 2 coverage for an announcement, a couple barely-related stories, and a surprise mash-up, which is made slightly less surprising by being mentioned here.

14 - DOOM

Take on the evil denizens of the underworld in this notable port of the seminal first-person shooter! In this episode, I continue the history of id Software through the release of DOOM (and a little beyond), go over the development of the Jaguar version, cover the competing ports of the game, test out the networking, and play a lot of the Jaguar version's music. Yes, music!

This is easily the biggest episode of the podcast so far, but that's OK, because after all, we're talking about DOOM here.

There are personal stories galore, plus feedback from DoctorClu, Lost Dragon, Louis, Arethius, and BTB!
