Virus is extremely challenging, but very satisfying, once you get a feel for the controls.
While talking about keyboard controls during the lunch break, Virus came up. I wanted to try how it felt, so I booted Virus on WinUAE with a 68020 CPU to get a little better frame rate. I assigned my favourite home row keys, ASDF for pitch and yaw, and JKL for fire, thrust, and missiles. The game is still pretty amazing, although ridiculously hard.
Got the score 3370.
Virus still works on my awesome 'Gamecollection 2' disk with Carrier Command, Skychase, and 3D Pool
I demoed Virus to Jeppe N, and I'm still impressed that I remember how to play such a challenging game after not playing it for 20 years or so.
Got the score 18814.
Reached wave 4. I'm still decent at Virus.
Got the score 9141 in FS-UAE A1200/020.
I played an hour of Virus on FS-UAE, emulating an Amiga 1200 with a 68020. The game runs faster, which makes it more fun, but it also seems somewhat harder. Either that, or I'm really tired.
