After seeing the mention of Wonderboy and then me referencing Adventure Island, this led me on a merry trip through Hudon's catalogue.
I had no idea there was a series of remakes on the PS2/GC from them.
Admittedly, some of them look a bit off, more like an N64 game than a GC one, but Star Soldier doesn't look bad at all.
I might add them to the watch list at least, pick one or two up along the way.

there is a separate thread about these here

I have put in an order for the Space Invaders one on the Gamestop site for €400 and have bought the parts that were recommended in the modding youtube video for when it arrives

i read that alright, some of them don't seem convinced with the videos at all.
Some serious negativity over there but tbh, can you really blame them? It's gone beyond a joke at this stage.

I have three game from that series and they are quite good. I'm still missing the Lode Runner game. Adventure Island only arrived earlier in the week but I haven't played it yet.

They seem to have been released on both the GC and PS2.
I think the GC would be preferable, Japanese GameCube games are so cool!

They are but they're probably more expensive now. The PS2 games are a lot more common.

Playing Thunderforce IV on the Switch, wow, I am so terrible at this game!

I bought it on release, waaay back when, and remember being a lot better, and the same over the years.
Then I realised this is probably not due to my advancing years but because I had been used to playing the PAL version which is slower than the NTSC original!

I think the PAL version is actually optimised for speed.

A lot of those 'optimised' games just speed up the music but not the gameplay.

TO BE FAIR...it can result in a more properly cued intro.
