Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Butcher Bay is a great little game that fits well with Pitch Black, I enjoyed it more than the sequel movie.

Re: Retrogaming Spotlight: Kung-Fu Master

My word, that Spectrum version is seriously impressive, is that running on a standard 128k? Wasn't aware of the existence of KFM2 either, I'd love to play that. Can't understand the attitude of folk that would rather hoard something like that than release it into a community of enthusiasts that get...

The Speccy version on the other hand.... Oh dear.
Worry not, for now we have Mister Kung Fu on the Spectrum which shows what could have been achieved.

Re: Retrogaming Spotlight: Missile Command

The trackball really raises the bar with it though, making a huge difference to it, it just feels so right.

Re: Amstrad, Spectrum or C64. What is the worst and best hardware for gaming?

I just found CBM BASIC, on both Vic and C64, to be unfriendly and lacking in functionality that was common in other BASICs. It isn't as easy to read and understand, and thus not as easy to learn. With my Oric, I could attempt to port something from another BASIC with relative ease, the exception bei...

Re: Retrogaming Spotlight: Missile Command

The VCS version plays surprisingly well with the trackball (thanks Steve), even with the concessions made to fit the format.

Popular Culture: A whole episode of Chuck (Season 2 Episode 5) centres around Missile Command, with the game being central to the plot.

Re: Amstrad, Spectrum or C64. What is the worst and best hardware for gaming?

the C64 that taught you to program in BASIC ... C64 BASIC was barely useable, you really needed to learn machine code/assembly to get anything decent from it. Compared to pretty much any other system it was by far the weakest, which is a shame considering the quality keyboard. I knew BASIC from TI9...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 195

Hardly bitching about it, just highlighting that for the target audience, few will find it an attractive freebie. Thats the problem with these forums, people seem to think they are speaking for the entire mags readership, when in reality 99% of people don't think about it like you Yet I'm inclined ...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

The problem with PS1 emulation on PSP is the lack of shoulder buttons in games that use all four on the pad.

Re: Augmentinel

The pace of Augmentinel is slow enough I think it won't suffer too much, which is why I thought it worth trying.

I'll look into that app when I get home.

Augmentinel

I saw this over on World of Spectrum. Someone has taken The Sentinel, ported it to PC so it runs using the underlying Speccy code for gameplay, but enhanced graphics and audio etc (with options to use elements from other versions of the game). https://simonowen.com/spectrum/augmentinel/ Introduction...
