Re: Pirate games. Yarr!

You have to have a large force in a small town. If you do, the option of choosing the nationality of the new governer is automatically given. Remember once going on a rampage and turning nearly everything English! I used to love "travelling" southwards from St. Eustatius and plundering all the smal...

Re: Pirate games. Yarr!

I love Pirates! on the C64, the floppy version. Damn hard it is now that I've tried it after all these years. It was a great game on the Amiga as well and still looks real nice.

Re: Amiga advice

I dug out my yellow A500 some weeks ago and gave it a go. All the disks seemed to work fine :) I didn't even get frustrated at the loading times, that's how nostalgic I felt.

In case you need to get a USB mouse or joystick working in your Amiga, I can recommend this: http://retro.7-bit.pl/?lang=en&go=proje ... e=rys_mkii

From what I recall, some Apple had a nice collection of RPGs by Origin (Ultima etc.)

Re: in 80's warsaw c64 games were broadcast over the radio!

In Finland, we had a weekly program broadcast on the national radio which did a similar thing. They were broadcasting some user-made games if I remember correctly. I do remember recording some but not many of them worked as I had not yet learned of The Secret of the Azimuth.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 141

What on earth were the black bars at the end of the paragraphs in the Disasters article? At first glance I thought that they were censored parts of the text :mrgreen:

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 140

I liked the SSI article, I remember the company fondly for the Gold Box games. However, I was disappointed that Roadwar 2000 and Roadwar Europa got very little, if any, attention. It would be nice to have a post-apocalypse games article focusing on other games than the usual Wasteland or Fallout ser...

Re: Russia

Here's something from over a 70 years ago:

So these unexpected actions are nothing new..

I seriously hope that the young generation is more open to keeping things civil. Russians are not to be considered as a lesser power, that is what bothers them most.

Re: All about the handhelds

No, sorry for the "confusing" text (I'm not a Brit so English is my second language). Those are the two games that I still have from my youth, others have disappeared in time :x The games are not in a good condition, DKJR is very, very yellow :mrgreen: Fortunately there's nothing wrong with the scre...

Re: All about the handhelds

Just found my two remaining G&W games last week, Mickey Mouse and Donkey Kong Jr. (panorama). DK is still very addictive after all these years!

Re: Text Adventures feature?

Has Magnetic Scrolls been covered in some past issue? Which reminds me of a question I've meant to ask - whatever happened to Anita Sinclair? After all, she was one of the top women in the games industry back in the 80s.
