Cinemaware is back with Wings!

Cinemaware is back with Wings!

Post IP: rejestrowane!

For those of you that missed this, there is a running Kickstarter campaign from Cinemaware, for a Remastered, enhanced version of Wings! It's a great opportunity and if it succeeds, more Cinemaware masterpieces like It Came From The Desert and Rocket Ranger will follow. Give all the support you can, and share the news!

It's also a nice opportunity for TheCompany to release some v.2.6 Cinemaware titles. ;)

Why the harshness? Yes, they are remaking old games, but they are such classics that deserve a higher-quality audio/video presentation. So many trashy games and films get remade all the time. Cinemaware titles are true classics and they deserve a fair chance. CW also said that eventually will also release new, original titles.

Don't get me wrong man. They are back, cool. They want to remake their games, cool with that as well. However I don't get the idea with money begging. Seems cheap to me.

I remember when they did the original kickstarter for this, I gave them a harsh email. I mentioned they spent more time and money on the blonde advertising the game than the actual footage of the game. I said it looked tacky and cheesy and then went on how they should at least have a playable demo to advertise the game properly.

They then came back to kickstarter with a demo, I tried it; dreadful. So many problems... The look and feel seems tacky and cheesy. The explosions are no way as good as the original Wings. The enemy planes seem to fly with no AI. It is essentially a mobile/tablet game when it should have been more PC focused. The attention to detail is atrocious. For example, when you get hit in the remastered version the screen goes red. The original showed a sequence where you collide with the enemy giving you the chance to ditch your plane and survive for another day. Your pilot could also be shot, or your plane may go completely out of control through gunfire. I see no passion put into this game. If this is the quality of the remastered version then I am not interested to see if they do 'It Came from the Desert' or 'Rocket Ranger', all three are favourites. The originals will always be the best until someone decides to give the games the respect they deserve.

To be fair, I'd love to see a new version of "It came from the desert".
