On my wanted list: Soukyugurentai, Pop N Twinbee Deluxe Pack Gradius Pack Thunderforce V I've just ordered Dezaemon 2 for the Saturn which lets you build you own shooter (it has 5 built-in to tinker with but can make one from scratch). There's a good FAQ in gamefaqs.com to make sense of the japanese...

First one I owned was an Oric-1. It was actually a nice machine and the version of BASIC was pretty good - just a pity it wasn't supported much. Yay! Another Oric owner :D Just in case you missed it, there's a back issue that has a full retroinspection of the Oric. You looked at any of the recent h...

First computer I used was an Apple IIe in school - would have been 1981. Wrote some BASIC programs for it (including a now-no-doubt-embarrasing version of Monopoly for my O level project). Remember playing nice version of Space Invaders on it and a Breakout clone called Little Brick Out. First one I...

Got this one back in the day - still have it. I remember it distinctly becuase it was the 1st SNES game I had that used all the buttons on that fancy new controller...... I only ever got as far as the snowy forest level (5 or 6? can't remember). Got my SNES shipped and the PAL version runs at 60Hz w...

Sold my woody 2600 with twenty-odd games, all boxed with instructions for £40 circa 1985 and it pains me to think about now. Have since acquired a 7800 and another woody but will probably never get the amount of boxed games (which is a weakness of mine) I had back then without spending big at somew...

As said before the N64 does not support RGB SCART; nor is it a case of a mod - the circuitry just ain't there. The only alternatives (ignoring co-axial that is ) is either component or S-Video. S-video certainly makes things clearer - but on some games it makes the shading look less subtle; in othe...

Just thought - people might think I'm a spammer or something. This is a genuine link and you won't be directed to any dodgy sites..promise.

I use the same moniker on the Edge, AtariAge and ArmchairArcade forums - and I'm "davykelly" on the MonroeWorld forum....

I suspect you would need to get hold of the software that hosts each game which would be deep in Sega's archives somewhere.

Unlikely it would be released any time soon.

Berzerk origins

Hi. I am new'un so be gentle. Enjoyed the "making of " feature on Berzerk - particularly because of the reference to the old PC "robot" game. I can remember playing something very similar on the DEC VAX mainframe system in work. I enjoyed it so much I have made a BlitzBasic version of it. http://hom...
