Re: BBC Games Reviews

Having spent some time playing and reviewing Tower Bridge on the site, it certainly has the air of a non-commercial game. Imagined it was a cover-cassette or something. A type-in certainly seems about right.

Escape from Moonbase Alpha is very unusual, agreed! I may have to consider it for inclusion..

Seeing as everyone else is doing it, I'll throw mine in: Int10h - BBC Micro Game Reviews http://www.int10h.co.uk I review BBC games - focusing generally on the quirkier or unknown games for the Beeb. I normally stick a new review up about once a week. Particularly, I l...

Re: BBC Games Reviews

My school had a single unit, but nobody could even get within ten feet of it. It cost so much the teachers wouldn't allow anyone access for fear of breaking it! :lol: I got a consignment of BBC Masters which had evidently been used in education. They had lower-case letters stuck over the normal BBC...

Hey, Carlos, TKV was my favourite game of all time. I may well give it an extended review.

Re: BBC Games Reviews

Current plan is to request a review copy from the software house, who still exist and, it would seem, still sell it!

Re: BBC Games Reviews

Granny's Garden! I've never played that one, and as I doubt any of my friends had a copy, with it being an educational title, I'll have to see about buying it somewhere. On the plus side, from the sound of it, I suspect my 10-year-old daughter would love it. I wonder how many copies come up on ebay ...

Re: BBC Games Reviews

Sim? Never heard of that one, but I'll make a point of reviewing it before reading the stuff in the latest magazine!

Thanks for the suggestion - absolutely no idea what to expect!

Re: BBC Games Reviews

Hmm, Tower Bridge eh? I'll go hunting. What was the premise of the game?

Strange that the link doesn't work on your browser. Try googling int10h retro, it's normally about 2 or 3 down I think.

BBC Games Reviews

Hi all, I've taken a sort of personal challenge to play a new (old) BBC Micro game each week, particularly weird or notable ones. I'm posting a review of each one up here: http://www.int10h.co.uk - but I'd love people to recommend games to me. Do you remember any weird or wonderful BBC games that mi...
