Re: ps2 gamepad

I suspect it's a DIY mod. It's very unusual to see a PS2 pad without matching sticks, and this one clearly has something different going on there as well as the pad. Since this one image appears to be from an old ebay auction and there appears to be no other similar image anywhere else on the intern...

Re: Virtual Pinball

I had all the parts to build a small one but never got round to it. You don't need a massively specced PC to run some of the older pinball emulators, I was doing it on my old XP PC from a decade ago. £600 doesn't seem to outrageous for an off the shelf solution considering the costs of a PC, two dis...

Re: From the forum issue 208: Eighties pick'em

Computer: ZX Spectrum. Yes, the C64 is technically 'better' and has some games that blow the Sinclair away, but there's something about the particular combination of resolution, palette, colour clash and farty sound of the 48k Spectrums that are especially endearing to me. Console: Vectrex. While so...

Re: Cosmic Frontier: Override

Because I don't think Cosmic Frontier looks like something I'd enjoy? It still seems like a 90s shareware title, but with a 2020 high end indie game price. Things have moved on, and that Kickstarter just isn't selling me on the new game.

Re: Cosmic Frontier: Override

£8 will get the game (projected for July 2021), but it's a no from me. Elite: Dangerous is only £20 on Steam right now.

Re: Game I cannot find

With Pekka Kana 2 being a game released at a coder convention, if the one you're looking for is from a similar background it could be hard to pin down. Thankfully most of these things are recorded somewhere if you search, but finding someone who remembers a random description and matches it to the g...

Re: Numeric Pad Amiga Games

The first one that springs to mind is F/A-18 Interceptor, a relatively early arcadey flight sim, notable for its extremely fast solid filled 3D at the time.

Re: Invaders V Galaxians V Gorf?.

Gorf is a significant bit of arcade/shmup history, so worth checking out on that point alone. That it remains a decent, playable game with a little variety in the levels makes that more so. It's certainly more interesting than Space Invaders to play, and the synthesised speech is one of the more mem...

Re: Gift advice. capcom home arcade vs pandoras box.

The PS classic is a cheap option though, being a self contained solution with almost all you need to plug and play, just adding the cost of a small memory stick. A Pi with case, controllers etc will overall be much more expensive.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 206

I stopped buying Edge when it became more about the industry than the games. I was buying it for just a few pages of retro coverage, then RG did it properly.

Re: JXD Mini arcade

The JXD S7800B handheld was Android based and used the HappyChick emulator front end, so you never really had to use individual emus, HappyChick dealt with emu and game installation and you'd just pick a game to play from a menu for a given system. Could be HappyChick or a variant again.
