If you had a speccy it was Thro The Wall on the horizons tape.... classic... everything since has been a poor remake..... Or Make a Chip - No other game since has come close to bettering that.

He needs to get himself a disk that can fool the amiga into thinking its got an old version of its Kickstart Roms under the bonnet........
