I need in serious need of an index!

Ok, here goes. I have a complete collection of Retro Gamer magazines. I love them. I do, really. But there are now so many of them that it seems I can never find the articles which, now and then, I'd like to read again. For instance, I have just tried to find that making of Secret of Evermore featur...

Re: June 23rd game pack list

Well, guess what? All the games listed in my previous post have magically disappeared ! I guess Krome realised they had made a mistake and made things right asap. Those who were quick enough to grab those games released too early won't have to wait for another one or two weeks before playing them! (...

Re: June 23rd game pack list

I can't remember all the games that have been released so far, but I swear some of the titles I saw after downloading today's pack #6 were never mentioned by Krome. In addition to the 5 games listed above, the following titles were also available : - Crackpots (VCS). - Kaboom! (VCS). - Scooter Shoot...

June 23rd game pack list

5 new games to be released in pack #6 next Wednesday:

- H.E.R.O. (VCS).
- Casino (VCS).
- Laser Blast (VCS).
- Triple Action (Intellivision).
- Black Widow (arcade).

H.E.R.O. is a must-play. Black Widow is another good vector game by Atari. The remaining three are simply dispensable.

June 9th game pack list

Game Pack #5 is out and with it comes some info about next week's batch. From what I gather, the two games that weren't released this week (and were supposed to be) are River Raid 2 (VCS) and Liberator (Arcade). Liberator is the follow-up to Missile Command . Will they be part of next week's batch? ...

Re: This week's batch

Thanks for the update, Spooky. I think I'll skip this week's release, as none of the seve... five games are of particular interest to me. 2600 Skiing and Video Pinball are poor (though I did play Video Pinball a lot, but then I was very young and that was waaaay before Pinball Dreams showed what a v...

Re: New challenge- Asteroids

Unfortunately I don't have Asteroids in my arcade. :(
Isn't there an easy way to know who has what when setting up a challenge? I've never set up any challenge so I still have no idea how the whole thing works.

Re: Time Pilot Tips and advice

Thanks for the compliments, ToxieDogg. I lost a life at 1:55 as the 2nd stage boss and a 1500 point aircraft were on the screen, so I am confident there is still room for improvement. The secret to a high score is to get all parachutes while destroying all formations. It can get tricky at times, but...

Re: Time Pilot Tips and advice

I have just had a few tries at the two minute challenge. It is me, or is the timer not displayed? (... no timer in a timed game? Give me a break) Anyway, I realised some of you were not in my friends list, so I added you to mine. :) Those customizable challenges are great fun and definitely add trem...
