maybe the article should have been called "speccy beat 'em up" rather than 8-bit beat 'em up :wink:

yep, best new issue so far I have a couple of issues with it so far (after only a quick browse) firstly, the gp2x review says the Ultima series can be played via scumm. I think the reviewer is getting confused with the Exult engine for Ultima VII (the other ultimas i-vi can be played via various emu...

yep, I remember coming across the series for the 1st time in College (circa '91). Thought it was great at the time to have this running on a PC. Which seems a bit strange when I had Prince of Persia at home on my ST - which was miles better

Obviously going to only appeal if you like the Speccy not quite, a lot of the game would have been multi format. I was (and still am) a big c64 fan, but I've pre-ordered the book. I'm probably going to get the Encylopedia of Game Machines. go for it necronom, it's a really good book. Got it about 3...

I'd like to see a new top 100 in Retro Gamer. But this time do it by genre. You could do one genre each month, if you think a top 100 per genre is asking a bit much you could have say a top 25 for each genre. We could vote on our top 5 per genre the Genres could be; Adventure RPG Strategy (including...

if you are into strategy/war games give Kaiser & Sorcerer Lord a go - both great not-very-well-known c64 games

as for aracde/action games there's a great little game for the c64 called something like bouncing ball - it's German, have a look for it on gamebase. It looks terrible but plays great.

the gamecube version with the GBA plugged in as pacman is Nintendo at it's best. The player on the GBA can see the usual pacman screen on his/her GBA. The players on the gamecube play on the TV and are the ghosts, but they can only see just in front of them (with a torch). It's great for a quick par...

Games you've completed (or tried to complete) more than once

Okay for me it has to be FFVII. I never tire of going back to it after 6 months/a year's break. Must have completed it now 3 or 4 times (and started it double that amount of times). Never really "loved" it the 1st time till I left Midgard. Also never played it till they released the PC version - I d...

like many others I'd say FFVII - finished it 3 or 4 times. Never killed all the weapons yet though - next time on my gp2x (when I get around to buying one) Honarable mentions to .. Privateer 2 the Darkening (read Elite but with good graphics) Elite on the ST Ultima V & VII prt 2 on the PC Dungeon Ma...
