I am developing a theory that Player 3 has the best characters;
Ralph the Wolf (Rampage)
Bart (the Simpsons)
Donatello ( TMNT) and TMNTII
Ha! I really think you're on to something there. For 'Rampage', I play Ralph most of the time myself. It's a shame he was always the one snubbed when they needed to cut a character for the home ports. Of course the Lynx version actually threw us a curve ball by including a fourth character, Larry the rat. I've experimented with just about all the ports, looking for a good alternative that allows character selection and while several of them are very impressive on a technical level, especially on the Lynx, Master System and Atari 2600, nothing beats the arcade original.
