If you’ve been reading this site you now how I feel about that Atari Jaguar from my post in May about Full Circle: Rocketeer.Â I loved all the pre-release hype surrounding the machine and while I did have fun with some of its high profile games, I quickly turned my attention toward the Sega Saturn and the Nintendo 64.
I just picked up issue 118 of Retro Gamer and along with the huge piece on the 30th Anniversay of the NES and the Top 25 MegaDrive games (it’s a British magazine after all)Â chosen by its readers there was a four page spread on the Atari Jaguar.Â As I read through the article I realized I may have bailed on the system too early.Â In my defense, some of the best games in this article (Total Carnage and Skyhammer) were picked up by independent publishersÂ after the original developersÂ dropped out.
After reading the article twice it got me thinking “What else is out there for the Jaguar?”Â Â The lists belowÂ are the fruits of my labor.Â Take a look at not only the games but also the developers’ documents and promotional items.Â Everything is here to start aÂ Jaguar collection or flesh out what you have so anyone looking at your assembly will think you’ve been running in the Jaguar scene for a long time.
