Well we used to have immense fun on the school BBC's playing several games like Frak!, Zalaga and Granny's Garden, and also programming with languages like Logo and Comal! I've written a piece about it on my website :

Excellent article! I have many great memories of playing this game on my friend's C64 and was always astounded at the atmospheric sound effects and nice graphics. The Spectrum version was also good but didn't quite have the same 'one-more-go' factor.

This issue has to be one of my all-time favourites! I've been patiently waiting for ages on articles about LucasArts and Magic Knight and here they are! Also really enjoyed reading the boulderdash and outrun sections - well done you have surpassed yourselves this month and I'll certainly be continui...

Because they've been out for years I can actually complete some of the games without needing a full blown walkthrough....

Re:

Would have been nice to see some info on other Amiga based systems such as the CD32 and CDTV, both those were designed around the os so popular Amiga series. Hi Sparky there is a section on the CD32 and I've got lots of games I own that I need to put up on the site as soon as I can! The CDTV I unfo...

Just to say that I liked the main headline 'Rubber Love' on the front cover! It was great to stand in the shop queue and hold this out for everyone to wonder what type of magazine I was buying. Can I request the following months copies to have headlines like 'SID Sex', 'Anal Amstrad', 'Rear-end Retr...

Meant to say also about the magazine - only a couple of 'adult' adverts within - always notice in one of your rival magazines that they seem to be getting more frequent and daring with this kind of advert. Is there really a need for it in these types of magazines? I'd be interested in hearing people...

The good old spectrum 48k still does it for me. I still think it's one of the best looking computers and is so small and compact compared to other big beasts! I know C64 sound is superb but I honestly never had a problem with sound from the 48k Spectrum - I used to love music featured in games like ...
