The hell! If you can even ever find one... :?
Maybe more for a Master Compact (the one with the separate keyboard section). Certainly Master 128 systems go for 60ish quid.

Craig here, ruthlessly editing this post. I figured that this thread could be put to use by people continuing to provide some insight into pricing that Darran or Stu can then use to amend the list in future issues. Please keep things succinct and only flag really obvious things that need changing. ...

The Game & Watch one always makes me chuckle, I think it states from £1 to £2, or something like that. Maybe at a car boot, at five in the morning, with a big stick to beat off all the traders. But I do agree that the whole thing needs a complete overhaul price wise. Yes! Especially for very rare...

Repton 2 was HARD. Great fun.

Since I never beat the game (the maze was huge), I don't know which version I had - the buggy missing-one-diamond one or the corrected reissue with the necessary extra diamond added in.

Speaking of WWE Smackdown, the last few releases from that series have been terrible. It's continues to get WORSE and WORSE (SVR07 and SVR08 being particularly retrograde). Ah well, that's what you get from a lack of competition coupled with an uncriticial audience of young naive pro-wrestling fans.

The late 80s/very early 90s arcade coin-ops were smashing. WWF Wrestlefest was the king. WWF Superstars was pretty decent too. It helps that they reflect a time when pro-wrestling (before the kayfabe spell was broken) had some of its best characters ever at the top of their potential. Both programme...

I wouldn't want to only have the option of re-downloading though. What if I get a game update/level/etc, then 5 years later I can't download it again? I want to own what I buy. On a disk. In my house. Great question, and rarely asked (or answered properly). My limited understanding is that backing ...

IF the Archimedes did have many classic games than non-Archimedes owners would be downloading emulators and talking non stop about the games. That's misleading. It does not necessarily follow that a below-the-radar niche machine's better titles would be known about amongst the 'mainstream' retro ca...

"Karate Combat", by Martin Sykes (for Superior Software) was a great fighting game. I could never get past the seventh computer opponent, mind.

'Dunjunz' was a laugh too, as were 'Swoop' and 'The Hunt: Search For Shauna'.

Can someone suggest a better emulator?
I am interested in a good beeb emu on Linux too. Particularly for using on the PS3.

On the subject of Firetrack, the author was Nick Orlando I think Not quite. His nom-de-plume was 'Orlando', but his real name was Nick Pelling. Great programmer. 3D Pool is a work of near genius. Model B is my personal favourite Beeb emulator. B-Em is good too. Both are slicker (though less feature...
