I used to play it - and yes, it was every bit as good as the Speccy's Chaos (not surprising, since it was a very close clone). I still have the tape somewhere...

It nice to have a good looking box, and I do wish companies paid more attention to the packaging, but having said that the box artwork contributes absolutely nothing to my decision of whether to buy a game or not. At the end of the day it's the game that matters and a naff box doesn't make a good ga...

Possibly they are only viewable with your account? Same here. None of yethboth's screenshots are showing up, and following th...

I have to say I'm in the "video games only" crowd too. Pinball games are a different form of gaming altogether and while they have their place, I don't think they belong here. We might as well demand that board games and fruit machines and PBM games are covered too.

And of course there's no reason why you can't buy the C64 version for all the neat stuff in the pack :D

If you have a C64 to run it on, or a way to get the disk contents onto your PC, you can always convert the C64 data into a z-code game file.

Jack Tramiel was apparently a complete nutter at Commodore, fired people at random and wouldn't listen to reason even from his own board. Try telling that guy the CD 32 was piece of s*** Tramiel wasn't at Commodore by that point, he was ousted before they moved into the 16-bit market. Irving Gould ...

Too bad. I wouldn't consider it "dumbing it down"; it just facilitates the player to play the game. The difficulty of the puzzles would remain intact. Yes, but the story and prose would become virtually redundant. The interface would spoon-feed you all the important items so you wouldn't need to us...

I have a question. I have the Winfrotz interpreter and Infocom games. While I can play them, I was wondering if anyone has done any modifications to improve the UI. I'm interested in a UI like the one found in the Legend games, where you had a list of the available verbs, a list of the interactive ...
