Attack of Mutant Camels

text adventures

Bloody horrible! "I don't know what f*** you means" was often the respons I was given! Wrote my first adventure games in BASIC - would often go - NORTH - you are in a deep wood, SOUTH -you are dead, west - you are dead etc...always annoyed me how programmers say the learnt assembly language in 7 day...

Action Biker

Wasn't that sponsored by KP Skips or something, advertising was a little more blatant back then! Remember playing one man and his droid - what the hell was that about, Draconus was made by the same people that made Zybex. Henri's House was quite fun for a platformer too. Hovver Bovver may well have ...

Greatest ever Atari XL/XE games

The much overlooked Atari computers.
Here are a few of my all time favourites:
- Bounty Bob Strikes Back (hard but full of invention)
- Zybex (£2.99 and looked great)
- Bruce Lee
- The Goonies
- Dropzone
Any thoughts?
A retro game publication on this machine is needed!
