Re: Pre-Zelda 1 games with a save feature

Elite immediately springs to mind.
1984-5 was when a lot of text adventures started adding load/save games (both RAM save and to tape/disk).

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Currently playing through the 37 (that's THIRTY-SEVEN) new C64 games released in Reset magazine's 4K competition.
Squeezing a game into 4K is amazing.

Re: Coronavirus

I realise it's important to get children back to school, but fining parents for keeping their children home when school starts again in September is a nasty way to go about it. For many schools the "safety" plans involving bubbles are going to be unworkable anyway, staggering start and lunch times a...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 208 - Back to the 80s

Enjoyed this issue a lot. The big 1980s feature was good, with suitably dayglo design.
Favourite piece was David Crookes on Ocean Software France, closely followed by the Myst legacy article.

Re: Questions for Tony 'Daley Thompson' Pomfret

How did you do that brilliant "transforming letters" input for high scores on Mikie and Firefly?

What development system/hardware did you use for the C64?

Would you ever go back to the old machines and write something new?

How easy did you find moving from 8-bit computer to the consoles?

Re: Kickstarter tracker

Unfortunately I don't think it would be good for the magazine to do.
Kickstarters can be risky, and there would be a backlash against the mag if one it had endorsed failed.
