Games similar to Camel Try?
#364109 - 03/07/17 07:51 PM


I found Puddle (https://www.gog.com/game/puddle) and looks really neat, despite some of the reviews. It reminded me of Camel Try (arcade game in MAME) but with liquids instead of a ball.

So, do you know any game similar to Camel Try, for Windows?

Bob's Bad Day.
It's an Amiga game, gut You can always play it in the emulator. (WinUAE or even in MAME)

P.S. LOL I was about to answer You with this picture :

Similar in that it's moving through a maze of which you only see the portion you're in, on a time limit, etc.

If you mean natively Windows, I don't.

If you're fine with an emulator, try Bob's Bad Day on the Amiga..

Don't think it runs in MAME, but WinUAE will handle it fine.

Looking on a thread at Twin Galaxies about Camel Try, that game was mentioned, but it's better suited for a trackball than a mouse. Specifically I like this game, but playing is irritating. On the other side, spinner games like Arkanoid or Camel Try are great on a mouse.

I still remember there's a part in Marble Madness where I lose some movement because the desk is not big enough and I have to move the mouse back to a starting point to keep pusing the damn ball ^_^

Thanks for the suggestion tho.

I also found that one, although I wasn't really convinced enough to try. Reviews say awful graphics, good gameplay. I'll see, thanks.

it was impressive at the time, one of my favourite Amiga games, and the rotation effect wasn't really seen elsewhere on the Amiga so I wouldn't really call the graphics bad although if you compare them with something like the SNES which had native rotation support they don't look amazing and haven't aged as well.

it is a good game tho, yes, I'm very surprised nobody has done a remake of it, it's not a straight camel try rip-off either, it holds it's own as a game.

Where'd the title "Camel Try" come from anyway. new [Re: Pi]

Can't imagine a more awkward name for a game, aside from Zzyzzyxx.

Zzyzzyxx is an 'original' name. Camel Try is... uh I don't know. Also places don't agree wether it's Camel Try or Cameltry.

I found this btw:
http://www.mobygames.com/game-group/cameltry-series

Curiously it doesn't have the original Camel Try game.

Currently looking at a similar group:

I was a beta tester for the ST version of Airball, and got seriously addicted to it.

It does, actually - it's just filed under "On The Ball" (arcade) for some reason.

yeah, afaik that was only ever the SNES title, no trace of it in the Arcade GFX roms at least, so if it was ever used as an arcade title it would be a proto with different roms.

If you're willing to go Playstation 1 then there's KoroKoro Post Nin which also has a crazy rotating maze, I couldn't remember the title for the first post I made.
