All I know is it isn't Adventure. Don't reckon it's VCS.

Loved the sprites in Cauldron II, especially the animation of the bugger-to-control pumpkin.

Great stuff, Merman! I downloaded the complete HVSC a while back but, aside from composers I knew, didn't know who to listen to. Going through them alphabetically seemed a bit much...!

Anyone have any non-obvious SID composers (ie, not Tim Follin, Fred Gray, Martin Galway, Hubbard, Ben Daglish)?

No doubt Walkers will take up any popular Golden Wonder brands, as they did with Smiths. Walkers are the EA of the potato and maize snack world!

Between a GBC and a NGPC I'd go for the latter... despite the former having a huge catalogue due to original GB compatability.
