Re: Back to 80’s vs 90’s dual feature

I like the suggestion and I think it would be quite interesting. Let me add something. I would suggest to use this set up to include highlights in differences in industry trends in the 10 year time span. Topics could be the most various, taking specific examples (games, companies, people...) as refe...

Re: Font Size

Seconded. Larger text please. Also because often, when there is white font on a black background (or blue font on a black background... issue 185... aaaargh!!!), also due to the low quality of the paper, the letters get 'smeared' and the text becomes 'pixelated' and almost unreadable. I am sure it i...

Re: Tracking lateness

There is balance in the world. Now that I have moved to the UK I was thinking to be safe from the delivery delays. But, after an initial happy period of 3 months roughly, and just in time for my renewal in May, the following started to happen: - the June issue (182) was late and checking my account ...

Re: Word search or crossword

I would enjoy a page of various puzzles. What about a 'spot the difference', comparing two screenshot with slight variations (e.g. sprites missing or different). The 'screenshots' can also be not real screenshots, but just made up for the game. Also, 'spot the intruder', where among a crowd of a cer...

Re: Tracking lateness

Incredible! It is a MIRACLE! Issue 180 arrived TODAY!!! oh... ok, I am in the UK now. By the way, until last weekend (april 15th) still no sign f issue 179 at home in Italy. As for the side-topic about paper vs electronic RG, I need paper. If it was electronic, I might buy it, but I won't probably r...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 179

Speaking of complaints, could anyone confirm if he also has the bbc arcade clones' screenshots in upper pages 40 and 41 and in bottom page 43 covered with a square...

Re: Tracking lateness

Hi all, long time no see. Just adding my feedback to this thread. Since the move to Future, I have been plagued with delivery problems as well as all the other retro-oversea'rs. I am in Italy and delivery times have been between one and two months, 6-7 weeks on average. Also, as many others I had th...

Game Style suggestion request

Hi all! long time no see! I would like to ask for advice. I am making wiith some friends a vertical scrolling 2D running game for smartphones/tablets (for the moment) with a 'retro' taste. I would like to go for pixel art, since it's the way I imagined the game from the beginning. My friends friends...

Feature suggestion involving pixel art

Hi everybody! Long time no see! I haven't disappeared yet, despite it might seem so. I would like to join you in Blackpool next October (like the old times!), but I have some friends coming to Italy from Japan the very same weekend. No, they are not interested in games, unfortunately; otherwise I wo...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 127

I am really glad to hear that so many people liked my ColecoVision Minority Report! :D I had a great time compiling it as I pretty much spent an entire week playing ColecoVision games to try and uncover some gems that people might not have played before. The system really does have a fantastic libr...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 121 Official feedback

Ciao Marko! I really regret not having been able to join PlayExpo this year. I was too busy. I missed it so much! News came of an event back at Blackpool, later next year... that might be a nice rentrée! Hey Lorenzo! Nice to see you back on here :D Shame about the mag being a few pages short though!...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 121 Official feedback

Hello, long time no see. my subscription issue was delivered at home a week or so ago, but I could only collect it recently because I was away for work. When I finally took the envelope in my hands, I teared it open and took out the magazine. It felt suspiciously light and thin, but it looked like t...
