Definitely should've included Zaxxon. And/or Blue Max for that matter.

When I think of the Amstrad CPC I certainly don't think of smooth scrolling or sprite movement. All the Amstrad games I played were massively colourful (some bordering on garish) but they couldn't compare to the C64's arcade like hardware scrolling and sprites. To me, that was what 80s gaming was al...

What about "disk" and "disc"?

I really need to know.

I really love Retrogamer. It's a much more satisfying read than the only other publication that I get regularly (GamesTM). So..... I feel somewhat relieved that the only things I can moan about in this otherwise superb issue are the "Yellow wizard" thing in the Gauntlet article (which has already b...

I had a Colecovision as well. And a VCS.

Someone has already mentioned the scanner thing in Ant Attack - I may have spotted something else incorrect in the feature. Didn't Ant Attack have four way directional controls rather than the (more logical) rotate left/right + move forward as described int he article? I could be wrong... I haven't ...

I had an Intellivision with a huge amount of games. Armor Battle was quality, as was Sea Battle (Space Battle less so). Away from the mainstream stuff, I remember loving the game in which you played a fish that had to eat other fish, which enabled your fish to grow and then eat bigger fish. I have n...

Has to be Gyruss, the coin-op version. I remember being totally blown away with this the first time I played it. The graphics, the music, the fact that your ship wasn't glued to the bottom of the screen... mind-bending stuff back in 1983. I bought the Commodore 64 version (on cartridge!) published b...
