Podcast 83 : The New Zealand Story

We’ve been tasked with rescuing our tiny Kiwi friends from an evil walrus!

No, we’ve not been hallucinating – we’ve been playing The New Zealand Story from those crazy dudes at Taito. Flying about on balloons and magical geese while lobbing bombs at mean teddy bears and er, spiky things. Lots of spiky things. Too many spiky things perhaps.

More world records for our friends Charlie Far (David) and Pete Hahn (former GG gamer of the year)

  1. Late to this episode but wanted to contribute: I just played the Amiga and arcade versions one after the other on my cab and I am hard-pressed to tell the difference – including graphically! This was a great Amiga conversion.

    The biggest drawback with the Amiga version is the lack of a jump button, relying on up on the joystick instead.
