I forgot to mention the brilliant Timeslip - another ace game that wouldn't work on the Spectrum or C64. I've had a look at the screen shot on www.commodore16.com and the game seems to be doing something technically clever with the graphics (i.e. something the C16/+4 can't officially do). It looks ...

I know it makes me sound like a creep, but Retro Gamer 44. It's the first issue I've bought and I'm still enjoying it. I've always thought a fiver for such a slim mag was pushing it (which is why it's the first one I've bought) but seeing the high article to advert ratio I'm regretting not shelling ...

Laser Squad on the Spectrum. I know there are several scenarios, and I've not worked my way through them all. But whenever I've had a long break I seem to go back to the beginning and work my way through again. I can't get enough of assassinating Sterner Regnix.

Are teh Psion 3 games compatible with Psion 5 etc? I hope nobody minds me resurrecting this month-old topic. The Psion is my favourite computer! The 3 isn't compatible with the 5 I'm afraid. They're entirely different systems: the 3 is 8086-based and the 5 uses an ARM RISC processor. Nobody ever wr...
