Re: From the forum: 186

I'd go for Alien Breed on the Amiga. Really atmospheric, with lots of polish. I would have been 13ish when I first played it, and it got me pretty scared! :shock:

Re: From The Forum 181_: Favourite Street Fighter game

I see your point about the controller - though the SNES pad just seemed to work :) Yes I'm from Ashford in Kent. Most of my arcade experiences were in Folkestone at the old Rotunda park before they shut it down. Such a shame, was great and I'd love to be able to take my kids there now :) SFII on the...

Re: From The Forum 181_: Favourite Street Fighter game

I have to say the C64 version was absolutely shocking. I had moved on to an Amiga by then, and that version was acceptable even with odd controls. But the C64 version - well, they shouldn't have bothered imo. I tried to play it a while back and it's just a mess. The C64 had plenty of great fighting ...

Re: From The Forum issue 180 - Favourite Bitmap Brothers Game

I always felt that if you bought a Bitmap Bros game, you knew it was going to be worth the money. My favourite would be Speedball 2 on the Amiga, played loads of it. It had so much polish alongside the excellent game play, and truly felt like an arcade game. I recently played the C64 version for the...

Re: Play EXPO Manchester

I'll be there - making the trip up from Kent. We've been to the Margate one a couple of times - but I get the feeling this is the big one :)

Re: From The Forum issue 174 - Your favourite Xbox game

Burnout 3 was an awesome party game - the mode where you have to cause the biggest pile up!
Also liked Fusion Frenzy quite a lot - again a decent party game.

Re: From The Forum issue 172 - ZX Spectrum Anniversary

I grew up with the C64 - my friends had the speccy. As such, I don't have much urge to play it today - but I do still enjoy looking at videos and screen shots of the amazing artwork. I used to consider the graphics on the speccy inferior as a kid, but my more mature eyes can see how wonderful they a...

Re: Discuss Time! Issue 161

I've pre-ordered the NES Mini - that thing is just too cool to ignore. I've got one of the Atari ones (the one that's a joystick with PacMan and Dig Dug) - which is great fun. I prefer to get original hardware and original games, but just recently the price is getting so high it's difficult. Couple ...

Donkey Konga. That game was awesome party fun, and my sister dreamt about it after playing it over ours one night, and ended up having to buy one :)

Re: From The Forum issue 159 - Codemasters

I had a lot of love for CJ Elephant Antics on C64 when I was a kid - really appealed to me as a kid and at pocket money prices too. Since then though, Micro Machines V3 on the PSX is probably my favourite - such a great party game, lots of fun with that one.

Re: Issue 158

Nice issue, enjoyed the Greg Tavares interview in particular. The print quality wasn't great this time - particularly in the review section and the readers letters - a lot of blurry headings and screenshots. I don't think it was the whisky.

This screenshot was in the GBA article but it isn't labelled. Which game is it? Looks cool.
