Magician Lord Discussion (past GotW thread)
LordElta
What a nice idea this game discussion, Kaz !

Waou, Magician Lord was, is and will ever be my fave Neo Geo game !
I spent a lot of time reading articles and watching screenshots of this game in many video games magazines since it's release. And then, in 1993, dream became reality when i bought the AES with this game. I spent, and still spend a lot of time playing this amazing (and really hard !) game, which graphics and music still impress me !

Thank you so much Kaz to make it live again in 2008 and for a long time !

I've always liked Magician Lord and it will stay a valued part of my Neo collection for as long as I own it.

Going to add some quotes from here into the review later on when I get time and do some general re-arranging of the review as I think it does deserve better coverage. Going to put together some bits and pieces for Nam 1975 later on and will get a new game of the week discussion thread going! Smile

Could you also add the differences in the 2 or 3 versions of Magician Lord, I think this might be useful to some people.

Good idea! Will definitely add those in, thanks man! Thumbs Up

Been out all day today and as I have work in 7 hours I better head to bed I guess. Soon as I get back from work I will get a thread for Nam online - already gathered together some vids and got some more screenshots/other info to add to the thread. Would get it all on now but need to make a news post and change poll etc, and I really do need sleep! Grin

Thanks for participating in this thread everyone and once again thanks to boogiepop for the idea! Smile

Just so you guys know, I have updated my review of the game a fair bit. I think it's a lot more balanced now, but I haven't changed my overall view of it. I've added some more info including chtulhus findings on the different versions, and a video + link to the jukebox as there's some magician lord music there now.

I compiled some choice comments from this thread and will add those into the review later when I get the chance, as well as some more images. Smile

Very good platformer and one of the best early releases that really showcases the power of the Neo in terms of graphics and sound. Still looks great today, sparing some awkward climbing animations. Hard as Courtney Love's drug habit, though. Back in the day I fed the arcade version quite a few quarters but never cleared the first stage- after burning through several credits I'd usually move on to something else. On the AES decades later, armed with unlimited continues, I've still only made it to stage 4's guardian. The home version seems slightly less difficult than the MVS coin-op if my recollections hold true but that was a long time ago. It's a challenging but scenic experience that any dedicated SNK fan should give a fair shot, not just those with a masochistic streak. You might grow to love this game- even if it doesn't love you back Wink

I really tried to complete the game today. Previously i quit after 3 stages today i quit when I was in 7 stage. The 6 stage was sooo frustrating I probably tried that stage like 20-30 times!!
