Retrogamer 41 - free to good home

Hope this is appropriate for this forum. If not could you tell me where to post it?

Is anybody interested in RG issue 41 before I throw it out? It's got the BBC Monsters review in it.

Good to see the BBC screenshots in RG 44 and the mention of the Arc conversion of James Pond although there isn't a screenshot. I've got a suggestion for the Price Listings section at the back: under the Archimedes you could put some of the classic Archimedes games Zarch: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Great to see some Acorn BBC Micro coverage with Green Beret and Magic Mushrooms (as well as the chart) but it's a big shame you missed the Acorn conversion of Doom/Doom2! It's got translucency, overlayered rotating map, error diffusion of graphics, desktop play etc: http://www.acornarcade.com/forums...

But here's the thing: there's barely even that footnote and if a game is worth mentioning as ported to another platform it's surely worth mentioning for the Arc.

And my vested interest is the fact that the platform continues. So hopefully people might think "wonder what happened to it?"

Here's a lot more: http://www.acornarcade.com/news/?tag=review Particuarly look at the year 2000. Games like Emotions and Wizard's Apprentice were specially written for RISC OS I think and were v.popular. Possiby the most professional game ever released for RISC OS was Exodus: http://www.acornarcade...

Retrogamer - how about a review of U.I.M? It was one of the biggest and most under-rated games ever released for the BBC and also the Archimedes. Basically, it is Elite with submarines exploring an equally vast ocean system of ports in the future and with a resurfacing/re-entry technique instead of ...

I use the last machine Acorn produced the RiscPC which was made by the company that produces Iyonix's today. The trouble with the Iyonix is its price tag despite it being a fine machine.

Before that I had an A3010 which was one of the successors to the Archimedes.
