Frequently asked questions (and answers):
Why this database? As I started to collect
games, especially shooters, I only had a NES and a Commodore 64.
Over the years I bought other consoles and home computers and was
puzzling, if the game xyz is available for the new platform either
and if this version is better or not. Also, there were some Japanese
/ US releases, who're harder to find and so I started this list.
As you can see, there are over 700 titles in the database, so it's
good to have these compacted infos.
there are no reviews? No time. I'm running
a few more websites and I have no time to write reviews. On the
other hand I think you should make your own picture of the games.
You'll loose fun when you've seen the best screens and actions before!
is there at least one picture in such a small size? As
I started to list my shooters online (back in 1996) I only had a
small webspace (2 MB AOL Account) so there wasn't enough room for
big pictures. Meanwhile the database is very big and many people
have access to the site which makes a lot of traffic. This is the
reason why the pictures are in a small size til now.
Barrax Empire? The title is from a classic
amiga game called >> Battle Squadron - The Destruction
Of The Barrax Empire << which is one of my favourite
shoot-em-ups til now. It was the sequel to Hybris, the first game
with real arcade feeling on a home computer (imo) and was my reason
to buy an Amiga back in 1988. If you don't know these two games
you've missed something!
Where can I find the roms? Barrax Empire
is a legal site, you'll never find any games for download here,
