Target Quake is one of those rare mods that when you first read about it you think, “There’s no way that it’s been pulled off!”, but soon after you load it up you realize that not only was it pulled off, it is awesome. You begin in your base with a group of fellow slipgaters cheering you on. There are lines of text that they are saying but it can become difficult to read them all quick enough. Still, it has its bits of comedy that helps assit the, “fun”, mood of the game.

Weapons are done very different when compared to most Quake add-ons. You get just a few weapons that can be modified by power-ups. Be careful with the Thunder bolt because upon firing it throws you back a few steps and can push off a ledge.

Health is picked up by killing the Quake monsters and absorbing their life force that is seen as blue and white bubble above their corpses. Though not completely original, an interesting technique. Not to often did I have to actually worry about my health. Most of my deaths came from falling into lava.

The levels should be familiar to any side-scrolling fan. Personally, it felt like I was playing through some old Contra levels the majority of the game. Each level has it’s jump around theme consisting of jumping on disappearing steps or navigating your way through moving lifts over a huge lava pool. The Quake baddies are usually placed in the spot that gives you the most trouble. You will find yourself having to use a strategic plan to take these guys out. What I like to do is jump, and then shoot. Say it with me, “Jump, and then shoot.” Good!

Of course, the gameplay can become tiresome. You really get let down when you finish half the game and find out that you must go back and repeat the levels you just beat. This time around though there are new enemy placements and other added challenges. I would have liked to have seen more new levels with new challenges.

In conclusion, if you’ve been looking for something fun and new to play this mod will fullfill your wishes. A definite recommendation on this one.

This looks like fun Ian.
Very fast.
:)

I wonder if you could re-arrange the sort order of the files to possibly optimize loading time from cdr?
Maybe use isobuster filelist output from the original quake cd.
Folder tree and file info > list tree info in text file > LBA

Then view the filelist text to see how the quake disk is sorted.
Modify the filelist with your added quake mod files.
And run makesort.exe to generate a sort.txt file to use in mkisofs when building the image.

Now that sounds like a great idea thank you i will have to try this.. when i was doing this with emulator's the loading is instant on a cdr it's not or it's my old dreamcast lol.. i dont think so.. should be fast on a gdemu..

I have the 640x480 version ready to go tommorrow it's slower but still fast there be a menu for the main radquake engine to select 640x480 320x240 in the 4.9 max speed release.. I was suprized on real hardware the 640x480 render runs really well runs like crap on nulldc goes to show sometimes the dreamcast is a beast lol

Looks more like this on real hardware framerate is above 25 most of the time the 320x240 is scaled to 640x480 but it hits 100fps at times

Holy shit you have outdone yourself this time Ian! Nice freaking work mate! a 30% improvement in performance? This is unbelievable! I can't believe how fast it is running in the video, very impressive!

Also glad to hear you got your DC up and running! You and Smith both right around the same time haha! Now you guys just need to look into grabbing a GDEMU clone for around $40-50. Will be such a huge quality of life upgrade for you. Nothing beats loading your games all from a nice front end menu. Wish we could reverse engineer a menu from the Dream on Demo disc menu, that was so nice and in 3D too.
