Thanks guys! - was fun putting it all together. And there is already plenty lined up for the new year too. Might need to get some new 1541's in for the disk transferring! :)

Re: Your favourite 8-bit platformer

Zamzara on the C64 is an old favourite - but also enjoyed Mayhem In Monsterland a lot back then.

Yup spot on! - he sold his source disks for the game some years ago for the game, along with the unreleased Outrun Europe.
