I polished off Red Alert 3 over a couple of days. Shame it was all over so quickly. Whilst it lacks depth I still enjoyed it

Retro Gamer Money.. Please join in

Lets see how far our Retro Money goes... An old idea... but I thought it would be fun. On all the notes in your wallet/purse/change pocket (rammed in so hard to unfold that the cashier tuts), in the top right hand corner, write in small letters "RGF" in biro or whatever. Then if any of our fellow me...

Terminator Future Shock was a few steps from greatness... if they could go along the same lines I would cry with joy... Crackdown 2 (no chance in 09) ...

Help me find the name of this game!

Back on my IBM 386 PC, I used to play a text adventure which was all about escaping from a goblin city. I think it was accompanied by some graphics... But not all that varied.. However it's been a long time so my memory may not be all that accurate. I thought it was called 'Escape from Goblin City' ...

Obviously Pizza Tycoon!

Back before "Tycoon" = Crap

Design the restaurant, make pizza's, buy new premises, engage in dodgy deals...

If there was one game in the world I could ask to be remade.. this would be it!

Good points.. I must admit its been a few years since I have played Repton so probably time has eroded my memory of it a little.. What would you guys suggest being the best Boulderdash game for me to sink my teeth into? I've played some online versions and the recent PC version. But I'd rather have ...

Hmmm

Must have been a pretty in depth review. There's not a lot to seperate the two games, at least in the terms of the game mechanic.

Boulderdash Article

I know I am a little late... Somehow missed the mag and had to back order it. Really enjoyed the article, its interesting to see how the game has and continues to evolve. The one thing thats been burning on my mind is the similarity between this and Repton. I played Repton as a kid quite a lot and h...

I think its just a case of finding them! That said I can always play on Mame.. but it isn't the same. Maybe I should get one of those X-Arcade sticks.. or whatever they're called. Just get a suitable USB widget and use a console arcade stick- you'll never look back! That I think I shall do. Just go...
