Re: From the forum: 192

So many classics to choose from but Head Over Heels gave me so many hours of fun on my Spectrum, as did Daley Thompson's Decathlon, The Great Escape & Match Day. Very tough to choose between them.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 190

I don't think the magazine is aimed at 7 and 9 year olds. Try them with The Beano.

I enjoyed the Arcade Club article. If you've never been, you have to go. Such an awesome place.

Re: From the forum: Issue 189 - Sonic Adventure

It's a bit clunky in places but overall it's a lot of fun, I still play it from time to time and get a lot of enjoyment from it.

Re: The first games you completed.

I think it must have been Adventure on the Atari 2600. Game 1 was easy, game 2 was trickier and game 3 put all objects in random places and was much harder. It was a great game for its time.

Re: Europe's largest arcade - in Bury !

Made my first visit tonight. All I can say is wow! Had a great time playing all the classics, including Warlords for the first time in many a year. Also played Tempest with a spinner for the first time ever, which made it a completely different experience. I could have stayed all night but will be b...

Re: Experience of importing a classic arcade machine to the UK.

Wow, that is an interesting post. I have often considered getting a classic arcade machine but have always put it off due to the reasons you describe. I am not brave enough to spend that amount of money on 40 year old technology but admire those who do and have the knowledge to keep them working.

My best games were Theme Park and Lemmings. I used to see those Lemmings when I shut my eyes at night!

Re: Which arcade game were you best at

I'm pretty good at Carnival by Sega. Most players seem to struggle to get past the fifth wave but I can usually do it. Back in the day, I was king of the Scramble machine in our college common room. I could make 10p last an age! I'm still pretty good at it on Mame as well but it gets boring quite qu...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 179

An ok issue for me. Best articles were the Gregg Mayles interview and the making of Aladdin, whilst I always enjoy a Pac Man 2600 article, the game definitely wasn't as bad as is made out these days. Nice to see Quicksilva featured as well as the BBC arcade clone article.
