As said before, I think there should only be one Classic Game per issue, and Tomb Raider isn't retro so should not have been included, but otherwise another pleasing issue.

Rather than graphics in a specific game, later on in the C64's life there were gasps of "Oh my god, sprites in the border!!" at the technique.

That SCUMM stuff sounds too complicated for me!
Lucasarts should just release a series of compilations for DS, they'd make a fortune!

PlayAsia, LikSang, VideoGamesPlus, Tronix that Mayhem mentioned, plus DVD Box Office (provided I pre-order; their restocking is almost non-existent!).
