The -> original <- game featured only snakes. The ones you name appeared in later versions.So which snakes are the Challenger, Cheiftain, Crusader, Beluga, Dolphin, Eagle, Assualt Ship, Drop Ship, Gunship, Fer-de-Lance, Hauler, Clipper, Courier, Cutter, Orca, Vulture, Type-10 Defender, Type-6 Transporter, Type-7 Transporter, and Type-9 Heavy named after?
And, in the thread title, he asked "Why snakes?" That is his answer. (I do suspect, however, his English may not be the best... could be wrong though.)Yes but the OP is not talking about the 1984 version, or the two sequels, they're clearly taking about ED.
In the real world, why was the P-51 called the Mustang? Why is the A-10 called the Warthog? Why is the B-17 called the Flying Fortress? Because that's what someone named them. At this point, you're going to have to ask Braben. It's his game and his choice.good, but when you see some snakes, it is not very interesting
even if you play in 1984
