Re: Retro Gamer Issue 154

Some late feedback, a good issue ,always been a fan of Croc, we got by pure chance as originally we got Final Fantasy (something) on the PS1 and found it dull and boring so swapped it for Croc instead much more fun, never knew there was a sequel. Minority Report was of particular interest, Dracula T...

Re: From The Forum issue 156 - Game Boy Advance

Manic Miner - a brilliant update of the original game, with new levels too, such a shame there was no Jet Set Willy to follow it up.

Re: Retro Gamer issue 153

Main interest for me this month was the Blagger article, I only ever owned Blagger on the BBC , never realised there was a sequel too, got them both now. Would be interesting to have an Alligata article, don't think there's been one. Interesting to read about how Sega messed up their later consoles,...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 152

It was interesting to read about E-Type being converted from the BBC to the Atari, E Type was the only real decent arcade racer the BBC ever had, it took ages to be converted and was one of the last commercial BBC games to be released, and it was pretty good too, but nowhere near as good as the Arch...

Re: Retro Gamer 151

Bit late finishing this one, I remember playing Scooby Doo the Speccy but wasn't very good at it. The Hunchback article was interesting, as I didn't realise Superior Software's version was the same one as the Ocean version, they both published Hunchback , but who was first ? seems to be the same gam...

Re: From the forum issue 154 - Quake

Never really got into it to be honest, it looks good but I found it a bit boring , however what is good about it is that it is one of the few commercial games that actually run on RISC OS 5 (Iyonix) computer, Wolf 3D and Doom only work on old Acorn hardware so this is a bonus having it running on ne...

A couple of suggestions

I have a couple of suggestions for articles in Retro Gamer 1) Extreme Games on the PlayStation, this was a great game, one of which inspired me (along with Resident Evil) to buy a PS1, racing on skateboards, roller skates, street luges and bicycles (we particularly liked the sampled bike falling ove...

Re: Retro Gamer 150 - Your Greatest Games Ever!

Just finished this issue, and I counted that I own (or have owned) 24 of the top 150 games, the highest placing was Tetris (that was on the BBC Micro , not Gameboy never played that version) and lowest was Chuckie Egg. Quite a few of my PS1 favourites appear in there , and Resident Evil Gamecube des...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 149

Finished reading this issue now, the Star Wars games features were the highlights, that sit-in arcade game of the original Star Wars was brilliant, especially when the Deathstar blew up, you just can't recreate that on emulation, shame the game can only be got in the original form as a Game cube hid...

Shame I missed it, would of liked to put my favourites to the vote, hopefully there will be a top 25 Archimedes games at some point, then I can have a go, incidentally top 25 Atari Lynx games would also be good.

Re: Feedback - issue 148

Just finished this issue now, a lot more interesting content than last month for me, I found Chronicles of Midnight, Digger T Rock articles interesting even though never played them. The from the archives was quite interesting too, not quite sure why there seems to be a lot of negativity towards thi...

I Contacted the chap behind micro power last year. Nice fellow the founder (Bob Simpson) but again he declined to be interviewed. That's a shame, but if they don't want to do an interview then I guess that's the end of that ! With regards to anf, you can get some further reading on them in RG: afte...

Re: From the Archive suggestions

Hi Thanks for your replies to my suggestions, it would be good if Software Projects could be done, as they really a significant company, what with Jet Set Willy, and also the link with Bug Byte who put out Manic Miner originally too. A & F would be interesting but apart from Chuckie Egg , is there m...
