How has anyone looked at the new graphics on the main character and thought that they've done a better job than the original?

I never rated the original game back in the day, very much style over substance. Was clunky as fuck and very frustrating to play.

Gods was awful, terrbly slow shite.

The remake looks super-budget game tripe.

Was Gods one of the games that viewers could play on Saturday morning TV shows by calling in and mashing their touch tone (surry, pulse diallers) phone keys?

I remember Magic Pockets was one, but there were others too. And it looked like an incredibly frustrating, crap way to play - even in the 90s, when crap was more acceptable/tolerable.

Weird Dreams was another of those.

I remember when there were some phone-ins where the caller would yell "up, left no..left, LEFT, I mean right, argh" and I assumed there was some unlucky sap holding the joystick and trying not to stuff it up.

But then, with the touch-tone version, I assumed in my naive young innocence that there was some sort of technological interface used to control it.... but was there? Either way, it was still a bit janky...

No, from what I remember there was basically a guy behind the "screen" on the TV holding a joystick plugged in to the computer that was running the game, listening to the instructions being given.
