WHOA. Shocked Blast from the past! The link doesn't work at the moment, but I hope this new one still has all the lead pipe swinging goodness of old.

*imitates pipe swinging sound*

Fwoom! Fwoom!

Looks like everyone's trying to get this game as well. In the meantime, Here's an article from Sega-16.

I'm still currently downloading the game. When I get it done, I can host the file temporary until the site's back up.

Or better yet, just click here.

One thing I am looking foward to in this is getting to use Adam again in more than just the first game. I've become best with Max in 2 and Blaze in 3, but I always had to be Adam in the first game. It should be interesting playing as him again.

Edit: Got through the game only to run out of time and be killed alone with half of the city when Mr.X pulled the old "If I can't have it, no one will!!!" stunt after I beat him. Bastard. I am currently working on ways to try and beat that clock. Which is 99 REAL TIME seconds and you have to fight through a Zamza clone with several punk escorts and Shiva before time runs out and the bomb goes off.

Sorry for the double post, but I think it's worth it.
Anyway I beat the game and it seems that there are a total of 4 possible endings to the game. One definately bad as I said earlier (ending #2), one definately good where you wipe out the syndicate completely (ending #4), and one that is a not so good good ending in that you beat Mr. X and co., but there are still signifigant related criminal elements still existing the city (ending #3). The forth ending (actually listed as ending 1) is currently unknown.
It depends mostly on what route you take in the game. That's right, there are many different ways to go through the game. Depending on where you go at certain points will determine the outcome and who you eventually face in the final level.
An old friend of ours (sixfourtyfive) that seems to be a fan of the remake himself has made a map of all the various routes you can take, and what will happen if you take certain ones.
If you want said map, say so either in this thread or PM me and I'll send you the diagram he made.

PS. Mistress-Samwise, the first link is working again if you want to grab it there if you haven't already. And yes, the lead pipe kicks ass. So does the sword.
