Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 128

I read the Lore article on the train home. It was an interesting read but I felt it only told about half the story? I kind of want more info on the play by mail stuff for example. Did you have more information than was published? Any DVD extras you can share with us? By the way, the article sometime...

Re: Questions for next In The Chair - Jim Bagley

Most burning question must surely be: When are you going to finish the Spectrum Double Dragon Remake project?

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 117 - Feedback Thread

I thought the cover was excellent and the SMS article was well written and informative, learnt some stuff I didn't know about my favourite console of all time. Alex Kidd or Sonic, though? Neither: Wonderboy! Or Opa-Opa! Lots of good stuff still to read, and thanks very much for awarding Moebius Goat...

Re: The Laird's Homebrew Lair

Huenison - Commodore Amiga Nice thread, some cool looking developments out there and it is nice to hear about new games for systems I've never been particularly interested in. I'd suggest tagging Huenison as a Commordore Amiga game is stretching reality a little bit. The sort of "Amiga" it will run...

Re: From the forum issue 117 Best Master System game

Op Wolf was excellent, I too used to use the pad on the floor for the grenade.

But the best game on the Master System has to be Wonderboy in Monsterland. The game is sublime, and better than the arcade original. It took months to complete - the final labyrinth was a real test of old grey matter.

Re: Home Brew Section

In a time where millions is spent willingly on 69p iOS games it seems slightly bizarre to me how little of that paradigm extends to retro games. :? Perhaps retro homebrew is considered more of a curio than anything else. Played for five minutes, enough to form an opinion and then cast aside to try ...

You've got some nerve... to be of such consistently high quality month after month, year after year. Keep it up: you're the only interestesting gaming magazine on the shelf.

What a cracking rant. It deserves to be printed in the letters page and awarded star letter status and a free 6 month subscription as a reward. You can run, but you can't hide!

Re: Official Feedback Issue 99

I buy it because it makes me feel warm and fuzzy every month.

SUPERB cover by the way. This issue looks like it is packed to the brim with skillness. Should be a great read on the loo.

Re: Cheats engrained in your memory

Going postal on the high score entry screen on Target: Renegade on the Spectrum awarded you with infinte lives and a nicely corrupted screen (initially anyway). A cheat code found purely by chance when expressing extreme dissatisfaction at losing the last life and thrashing the keyboard to death.

Re: The Wicked Father (my Atari 2600 homebrew game)

I love the death float. I see it a lot because it is bastard-hard. The collision detection aginst walls when you try to jump is ruthless! I still like it though and I've yet to see past screen 4 - perhaps I need an autofire joystick.

Great work. :D

Re: The Wicked Father (my Atari 2600 homebrew game)

Funky little thing. I played the first version you posted the other day and had a weird glitch where my chap suddenlly skewed off to the right hand side on screen 2. I haven't managed to reproduce it since. I haven't tried your new version yet, but I will when I get a spare five minutes!

Re: Official Feedback Issue 85

Got mine a few days a go. Beautiful cover.

But I must ask: for a game so indelibly linked to the Amiga that Lemmings is, why was the page sized graphic at the start of it playing on a Mac? Just seemed to stick out as a bit of the wtf moment for me? Nice article though, as always!
