I usually got angry. My tape version of Rainbow Islands wouldn't load in my +2A so I threw the tape around the room. The tape got its' own back on me by exploding. And at that point it was quite difficult for me to get a replacement, so it took a few years. I've since bought a tape cleaner and use t...

So did I; completely. Which is why I (erroneously) mentioned it. I can't believe how bad my memory's got and I'm only 33. Damn that vodka ....

I'm writing an Amiga retro revival right now That's good to see/read. I'd like to see more Amiga stuff in the mag, though. Any chance of an Alien Breed or Lemmings games series feature? Or how about a games creation feature, say, covering AMOS, Blitz, SEUCK, Reality Construction System etc. Doesn't...

What can an A500 do ? It can emulate a Spectrum ! :wink: LOL. s-l-o-w-l-y. Sure, the A500 was / is a capable machine (I owned a A500+) but I would go for the A1200 any day. Many of the normally incompatible pre-A1200 games will work without issue if you have the WHDLoad app, which vastly improves c...

it would have to be the Gauntlet's 'press symbol shift shift to walk thru walls' on the Spectrum version for me.

It meant you had a much greater set of freedom though it wasn't too unfair as you still needed to kill or be killed, thus retaining a reason for playing the game.

The Amiga was my first 'serious' home computer (my Spectrum was my games machine). I've had one since 1992, first an A500+ then quickly got rid and upgraded to an A1200. I've also got a CD32 with a SX32 expansion kit, topped it up with 8Mbs RAM and a 260Mb hard disk. Had an original A4000 keyboard o...

Seems like a good issue (mine's just arrived, had a quick flip thru). I'm quite keen on page 110 for personal reasons, LOL.

Dig the cover too.

Can't wait to stop decorating and have a proper read ...

I got a CD32- but I didn't get it until 1996; I swapped it for a Game Gear and about £80 I think. I initially used it as a slave CDROM machine for my A1200 whilst I was at uni. Like batman 877 I got an expansion kit for it; I bought the SX32, got an extra 8 megs of ram, a 260Mb HD and turned it in ...

I'm a 'gamer'. I haven't stopped playing Spectrum games ever since I got my first 48K in 1984. I'm also an Amiga games player (again, not stopped) and have also progressed onto GC, Wii, DS & PSP games. Never really got into PC gaming nor Playstation or Sega consoles. My gaming probably veers towards...
