Stuey's Awesome Name-That-Game Challenge

So this week I've been well into Head-On games, starting with the arcade original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYDrd9jE4WU But I'm going mad trying to find out the name of a remake that I (incompletely, clearly) remember. It would have been 1980s/90s, cute 16-bit Bubble Bobble-ish graphics, with...

Re: Virtual Pinball

I'm DYING to throw money at someone for a good one of these. I thought I'd found the perfect one here, nice and compact and ready to play: https://www.minivirtualpinball.it/prodotto/mini-virtual-pinball-complete-machine/ but it only comes with Future Pinball tables, whereas most of the ones I want a...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 138

I am FILLED WITH OUTRAGE at the absence of Tempest from the ZX81 top 25. As I read I was wondering which position in the top 3 it would occupy (the only serious competition being 3DMM and Mazogs), but NOWHERE? I am cancelling my imaginary subscription.

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

Changing the name to Chiptune Gamer was a bit over-the-top, though.

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

Yeah, yeah, I'm bored of whiny Kick Off fans now. How the hell is Sensible Soccer like Sokoban?

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

Sensible Soccer isn't football, it's a twisted form of Sokoban. I would seriously love to hear the rationale behind that conclusion. Just play it, you'll either see it or you won't. One thing Sensi isn't is football. I disagree. It's more like football than any football videogame I've ever played b...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

(actually, Stu doesn't write in the first person, using the royal 'we' like other freelancers, but i get what Daz means - Stu C is allowed to express his opinions pretty freely). In fact I'm normally allowed a tiny bit of privilege in that regard, but this month some mustard-keen sub stripped even ...

You noticed that the piece WASN'T called "The Definitive Kick Off", right?

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

quote sales figures to prove one is better than another means nothing It's lucky that nobody did that, then. Twist it all you like but you did state several times how Sensi sold vastly better than KO did. You also stated several times how KO didn't sell at all well. What I didn't do, however, was c...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

see I have the ability to understand that someone might dislike a game but I wouldn't dream of forcing my opinion on people like you have. Sorry, how exactly does one go about "forcing" an opinion on someone else? The opinion is presented, you can agree or disagree with it, you can even argue about...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

What about the "barely 100 games for the Amiga in 1990"? Just to say one. Oh for goodness' sake. Over-literal much? There was a Top 100, so OBVIOUSLY there were considerably more than 100 games. It's a figure of speech, a slightly more colourful way of pointing out that there were far fewer games a...
