Rick gets Dangerous on the DS. For free.

Rick Dangerous Nintendo DS homebrewHere's a little something that Oddbob discovered ages ago to break the silence of this not quite deserted blog: XrickDS. Or, to use its true name, Rick Dangerous DS, a fantastic freeware retro-remake that utilizes both DS screens, sports lovely 16-bitsy graphics and even includes a version of that lovely comic book of the game. In case you have never played Rick on any of the platforms it appeared on (that would be Spectrum, CPC, C64, Amiga, Atari ST, PC and possibly more) or still have fond memories of its unfair but addictive gameplay, here's your chance. Well, here too, but it wont be portable...

  5. Man I have the Flash song in my head now- from the movie..

    Flash - a-ah - saviour of the universe
    Flash - a-ah - he'll save everyone of us
    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
    Flash - a-ah - he's a miracle
    Flash - a-ah - king of the impossible
