IIRC, and it's a loooong time since I last played it, you can set your engine on fire if your run it at too high a level of revs for too long.

(We usually play until someone gets it right, you were a bit premature ending it...) I thought it was a bit obscure, and noticed the thread likes to be kept moving. Next time I have one like that, I'll leave it longer. Anyway, that looks like the PC version of Grand Prix Circuit Quite so. Your go.

No?

It was Arena for the C64, published on the Cult label. Although not credited at any point, it's a pretty close 1988 remake of Chaos.

OK, this one's dead easy so I want the platform too. :)

I wonder if they were any decent (or even half decent) full price games that DIDN'T get re-released on budget lables , or be given away free by mags? Obviously games like Shadow Of The Unicorn , which required a RAM pack didn't , but I guess not many others Come to think of it , I don't think Elite...

OK...

The similarity with Chaos in look is not coincidental.

It was released on a platform for which Chaos was not.

It was released on a budget label.
Still no help? C'mon, it's one of the Cult Games for goodness sake!

Re: Official Feedback FOR ISSUE 42

The Making of Sheep in Space Find out what happens when a four-legged hairy quadropod gets flung into outer space. Does that mean it's got 16 legs then? :lol: Besides it should be quadruped . :roll: Well, no. If he'd said "four-legged quadruped" that would be a repetition, but "four-legged quadropo...

Good job it was, otherwise I wouldn't have had a clue. :D

Don't feel bad though - I put up King's Bounty above and only later realised it's been in the thread before. :roll:

Pending marvin's confirmation, I can tell you that you are on the right lines... but I wasn't going to make it that easy this time. :wink:

When a thread is an advertisement it would be nice if it was marked as such. I know it says "announcement" but that's not quite the same thing.

Didn't we have this one a few pages back?

"Edward Randy: The Cliffhanger, or alternatively known as The Adventures of Edward Randy...", to quote merman.


If it's right, go with this one, otherwise just ignore it...
