Buggy Boy is lusted after in this newsgroup and it seems many people are
awaiting its promotion to working. Will this game the last of the true
classics to be emulated?

Could be. Hopefully sounds for Star Fire and Fire One wont be far away
either.

I feel stupid for saying this, but I never heard of the game. When I
first read a reference to it a few years ago, I looked on KLOV.
When I didn't see it listed there, I assumed it to be a running joke!

I am european so to speak, but I actually bought this game for the ST
*AFTER* playing it in the arcades.

Whaaaat!!! How dare you! ;-) Of course it's a classic. Seriously, I
dont know how popular Buggy Boy was across europe, but in the UK it was
a hit, so popular in fact that I believe it was this that was responable
for driving sales of the home versions :-)

I'm afraid i agree with you. I've played this game on 8 bit computers
(amstrad, spectrum) and didn't know it was an arcade conversion
