Re: Game endings - the good, the bad, and the shocking

I love the endings to:
- Super Mario Land - Gameboy
- Mickey Mouse Castle of Illusion - Megadrive/Genesis
- Creatures 1 and 2 - Commodore 64

I also love Thing on a Spring, and Roland's Rat Race game endings just for the nostalgia.

Re: Official Feedback Issue 100 + Issue 1

Well I've finally finished the type-in after 2 hours and what do I get? - Illegal quantity error in 40. :lol: I think I may need to re-check what I have typed. :) It should work.

Re: From the forum issue 101

My cousin had a good old BBC B micro and I used to love playing Dare Devil Dennis by Simon Pick. Great little graphics and a lot of fun to play.
