Sentinel, maybe?
It was 3rd person, it was 3D and you did have free movement.

Re: From The Forum issue 172 - ZX Spectrum Anniversary

Mostly just emulation on the PC since I got rid of my specy+

Although I did just obtain an Amstrad E-mailer for 99p
Don't know if that is hack-able to run specy games without the service :D

Re: Games you have loose that you need boxes and manuals for

I have the original big box 3.5" version of Monky Island, unfortunately I've lost the code wheel!

On the other hand I do have the original PC box and instructions for elite, but have lost the 5.25" game floppy!

Re: EBAY - would you charge for your time when posting

People selling on ebay know that ebay take a percentage, that's how they survive! I believe P&P should be exactly that, and anybody taking more is simply exploiting the buyer. It is not fair to pass on ebays cut to through postage. This is a cost the seller accepts by using ebays services, which the...

Re: Lets talk about vinyl

Hmm. Like my games 'collection' my vinyl collection is more of a hoard, most having been purchased when they were new or acquired from relatives. As for what I actually have, it is fairly broad if relatively modist in size. I have all the Yelo albums up to the early to mid nineties, I have most of t...

Re: Play Expo Glasgow 11-12 June 2016

I missed this, and it was within driving distance as well. :(

Will there be another?
Maybe I can bring my Vectrex, along with my; hopefully by then, finished; homebrew stuff - and all the original games, obviously. :)

Re: What is your approximate ratio of playing modern/retro g

If you include remakes/reboots as retro then its about 95% in favour of retro. I'm probably much about the same, if you include retro-style games. I honestly don't know what the newest game I have is, but it is probably a retro type indie. The newest non indie games I have are probably deamon souls...

Re: Retro PC gaming

I've sold off a lot of old PC bits through ebay in the past but still have a lot of old cards and memory lying around in the loft. I do try to make some use of my old machines, and only relatively recently threw out a 386 and 486 PC. I had an Amstrad 1512, complete with green screen, for years befor...

Re: What is your approximate ratio of playing modern/retro g

It depends what you are calling retro. I have no current generation consoles. I have a ps3 and 360, but I don't play the 360 as it broke, I play the ps3 les than everything else combined, but I'm not sure where a lot of the PC games would fit. And quite a few of them are relatively new out but retro...

Instructions for making a superhuman/jamma machine

Does anyone have any links to good sites that go through how to put a supergun/ jamma looms together?

I'm thinking of making a superhuman and wiring it into my old cub monitor, which I've already got on full colour mode and currently plugged into my amiga.
