    Ed Hunter

    I think it's only fitting that the first video game thread posted here references Maiden's first foray into the gaming world. Anyone else play this one? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Hunter) While not nearly as sophisticated as Legacy of the Beast, I really enjoyed this game, back in the day. It was always a kick to waste the four horsemen... if there's ever been a more metal video game final battle, I haven't played it!

    I played Ed Hunter years ago, and I enjoyed it too. I could only beat the game once but it was amazing! The downside for me it's that you couldn't save the game, so if you got killed you had to start again...

    Yeah, it was pretty unforgiving, for sure!

    I never found all of the band members during the game either... (they represented 1-ups, I seem to recall). I think I could find all but Steve Harris. lol

    I don't know of anywhere it's currently available, but I haven't really looked into it. You'd think, with all of Maiden's fans, that someone, somewhere might have emulated it...

    I liked it a lot better than any House of the Dead game I've ever played, myself.

    Tbh it wasn't very good. An on the rails shooter on a PC is a bit disappointing. Not to mention 99% of players wouldn't have had a lightgun either so they wouldn't have got the proper experience.
    To this day I guess I'll never know
    Just why they let me go

    I definitely didn't have a light gun when I played it myself, but Operation Wolf for NES had conditioned me to moving crosshairs across the screen, so I dug it fine.

    It was just fun to have a game based on Iron Maiden to play, to be honest. It still kinda is too, despite all of the outstanding problems. Happy Anniversary, LOTB! Cheers!

    The music album part of it was actually my first Iron Maiden album. Pretty great set.
