Re: Retro Gamer issue 177

Top ten not really a surprise bar the positions of certain non-C64 Commodore computer and a certain Sega console. Completely agree with #1 though ;)

Re: Bob Wakelin tribute

Gamers in the UK during the 1980s were spoiled. While I may have owned the best computer, the Commodore 64, the vast majority of players, arguably Nintendo and Sega too, were blessed with the golden era of cover artwork, an area sanitised and produced almost seemingly by rote for today's markets. Of...

Re: Space Invaders 40 years old today

Didn't realise it was as early as this in the year... thought it would be maybe the summer heh. Wow. But yes, 40 years since all those yen coins shoved into slots heh... We're in the process of tracking down the developer who made the original killer app for the Atari 2600, so hopefully they'll be a...

Horace and the Robots

From Mamemeister... If you enjoy a spot of Berzerk, you might want to try Steve Snake's brand new ZX Spectrum release "Horace and the Robots". I've played a lot of Berzerk and can catagorically say this is the most faithful version outside the arcade, it's that good. You can download it in the info ...

Re: Retro Gamer 175

Also, I always really enjoy "The Uncoverted" feature but Hot Rod was on the C64 (I own it and it's a great conversion) and I believe it was also on the other 8-bit & 16-bit computers also. Ah, not just me noticing then, spotted when going through the issue, was that Ash&Dave had done Hot Rod for Ac...

Re: From The Forum issue 176 - Favourite football game

Favourite traditional style football game is probably Winning Eleven 6 Final Evolution for the GameCube, arguably the best iteration of WE (aka PES in the West) that has been hard to match since. Non-traditional football game, then probably Sega Soccer Slam, that was manic and a laugh to play seriou...

Re: What's your favourite Rob Hubbard song?

Monty on the Run title music... no one in 1985 would probably believe that such a composition was coming out the speaker of a home computer. Rob was the pioneer, not only for the Commodore 64, but for taking videogame music to another level.

Re: Frank Bruno's Boxing

FUN FACT: The game came up on Prime Ministers Question Time. They said it was a racist game because of the names of the characters. We came up with those after a lunchtime at the Hop and Grape (next door to Elite) so we were a little under the influence... Anyway thats the story behind Frank Brunos...

Re: The Greatest Games Systems Of All Time

1] Super Nintendo (10 points) Arguably Nintendo’s greatest achievement, and yet the hardware itself was lacking in one or two areas (we’re looking at you, CPU). But the principle mantra is that a platform is only as good as the games released for it, and that’s where the Super Nintendo comes through...

There are some blog posts via C64Audio detailing parts of Rob's career, and yes there is a piece on his Atari 8 bit music coming up ;)

Re: Project Hubbard (Rob Hubbard Kickstarter) is live!

I believe there might be something in the works that covers the original pieces. Putting them all on CDs just wouldn't be practical though, there's far too much material. You're looking at hundreds of tunes with hours and hours of running time. I agree, a box set of Hubbard original music CDs would...
