I'm a bit confused here, this Vacant Ark Buster isn't the same Guardian of Paradise Buster, is it? They have different webpages, but I don't know...

There's just one Buster, as far as I know, and if somebody else took mr. Hashimoto's alias, then they're pretty much giving credit for their games to mr. Hashimoto =P Bit of an odd thing to do.

That Joe Gunn walkthrough was great! Got stuck at the anteroom of Ra yesterday, and couldn't figure it out today as well, until I read that part of the walkthrough a couple of times. Now finished Joe Gunn, and man, was it worth it! Bit of an anti-climatic outro, though.

What happened to Buster's other game he was working on? The side scrolling fantasy game?

Buster's (Vacant Ark) Games page:

Buster's (Guardian of Paradise) Games page:

I don't see any game in common, and why to have two different pages?

I know that proves nothing, but it made me believe there may be 2 different guys named 'Buster', but I don't know... Can anyone (AKA Shih Tzu LOL) clarify?
