Re: Game I cannot find

It sounds like Hammerwatch although that would be too recent. Possibly Mageslayer which was a late 90s Gauntlet type game, you do throw axes but I'm not sure about the other bits.

Re: The original Super Mario Bros for the NES

Yeah it was the opposite here, we were all too busy playing on the Spectrum and C64 to take any notice of an ugly grey box gathering dust in Boots with its overpriced games :mrgreen: I was just talking about that last week, I was pretty sure the NES was exclusive to Boots at some point in the late ...

I do, but as a kid my favourite game cover was for Barbarian and that wasn't hand drawn.

Re: what was the first game you played

Think it was either Phoenix or something very similar to Sega's Turbo on a caravan site.

At home it was Crazy Chase on the Philips Videopac.

Re: SEGA 32X LCD

Do you have another TV you could test it on? Preferably a CRT. The 32X is notoiously fickle and there's a common fix you need to do every so often so I would guess it's the 32X at fault here.
