I voted for Mega Lo Mania.
The replay value boosted to maximum just for hearing again the 'We've nuked them!' and 'We've been nuked!' phrases.

One game immediately springs to mind: Tetris.

Getting late, so I'm gonna grab some shut-eye and ponder some more about this.
I don't recall you mind melding with me earlier...

Supposing we are speaking of an adult, I'd choose something that is immediately appealing, simple and addictive. Tetris first comes to my mind. Then Space invaders. Since vs. human competition or cooperation is a strong driver, I'd suggest Indy 500 (atari 2600) Basketball (the old 1vs1 trackball dri...

June 1983 - n. 6 of 'Video Giochi' (ed. Jackson)

'the first and only magazine about video games - computer - electronic games'

Still looking for the first 5 numbers. They are quite rare.

Terra Cresta In those years I was already a fan of science fiction, but I had also started to like japanese cartoons with big fighting robots. Terra Cresta had all the ingredients of such toons, but keeping a more western SciFi look: just I was wishing for in a vertical shooter by the time the game ...

Just returned! I had lots of fun and good food. The people is nice and the weather so hot! The Fado is one of the most fascinating ways of expressing music that I have ever heard. Even if I can't understand almost a single word. Reminds me of classical popular Musica Napoletana, still it's so differ...

Trip to Lisbon

Hi. Wish me a safe journey. I am leaving for a weekend in Lisbon.
Beautiful city, so much history, nice people. Fascinating.
Oh, and incidentally there's a Videogames Live show tonight at Campo Pequeno.
Have a nice weekend everybody!

Paul Norman. The Forbidden Forest games have my favourite soundtracks, but I like the score of almost any of his games. I'd also would like to say that I really loved Jeremy Soule's Total Annihilation soundtrack. Absolutely awesome. I can't say he's my favourite composer, because I haven't listened ...

Actually, when I collect itmes, is not for the software itself anymore. I can probably find an emulated version, so even cutting the loading time. With a number of reasonable exceptions, even if I loved to, I doubt I will ever manage to play games on the original platforms. I can cope with cartridge...

Oh! There are so many good isometric games.

I'd say Immortal on Amiga, just because nobody mentioned it yet (shame on you!! ^_^).

Also, can be Enigma Force be considered isometric?

Programming a game has been one of my dreams as a child. Unfortunately I have always lacked the patience to make something out of it.
