Re: Suggestions for best platform games

BioMechanical Toy! That's the one I've been trying to remember the name of for the last couple of days.

Re: What game is this??

Loads of bootlegs carry the Nintendo logo, though typos in them or slight deviations in the design aren't unusual. Since the bootleggers are happy to steal the games in the first place, they really aren't overly concerned about doing the same with the logo. I'm sure if you were to start researching ...

Does Drill Dozer on the GBA meet your criteria? That's a great little game.

Looks like a bootleg ninja turtles cart.

There's another example with the same label in a different coloured shell here for example

Re: What Was name of tic tac toe with plastic donuts ?

Connect 4 Advanced.

Bit if you Google for:
3D connect 4
3D noughts and crosses
3D tic tac toe

Any of those will throw up loads of similar results, since it's a minor adaptation to one of the simplest game designs there is.

Nemesis the Warlock on the Spectrum. It's the first game I remember where piling up the dead bodies of your slain foes was a viable tactic.

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

Nice little system for the money, looks good. I wish they'd do stuff like this with bigger screens, I'd love a 10" screen handheld gaming system. Switch is great, but the screen is still a bit small sometimes.

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 214 - Turrican

I don't care if a letter from the bank is a bit soggy, but I'm less keen on moist mags. The bigger product is more likely to act like a sponge and won't dry out as quickly/easily, so more likely to suffer notable damage. I'm starting to think I need to go digital, but I bet they make those awkward t...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 214 - Turrican

Not impressed with subs getting the mag in a paper envelope, in Scotland, in autumn/winter. It's just begging for issues to end up a damp, warped mess before they're even opened.

Re: Screenshot challenge.

I played this bitd, I know I did, but only vaguely remember it. Thought it was a Mastertronic game, initially making me think of Master of Magic (which I know it isn't), but it's another publisher. As a Crash Smash I'm positive I played it, as we always made sure to acquire all of those.

Re: Capcom mini arcade

On the upside, with Mega Man and Street Fighter being two series I don't care for, I'm not even remotely tempted to throw away money on this one.

Since you mention it, The Laird has a good thread at AtariAge.
