Re: Hot Topic - Best Jetpac game

Original Jetpac on the Spectrum - one of those games that was just so addictive from the first time you played it. Simple? Yes. Repetitive? Yes. Incredibly addictive? Absolutely! An all-time classic, no doubt whatsoever. Also enjoyed Lunar Jetman, but it didn't have the 'just one more go' factor tha...

Game Gear Shinobi article brings back good memories of a game I really enjoyed and played to the end - no walkthroughs, no cheats.

Re: From the Forum Issue 91

The only Sonic games I have played are 1 and 2 on the Game Gear - both were great at the time. I got through the first one in 5 days, then another week to get all the Chaos Emeralds. Now I have to go and dig out my Game Gear for another go!

Re: Why doesn't RG cover..

I used to spend a lot of time creating music tracks with The Music Box on the Spectrum - two channel music was such a novelty! I would like to see an article on it - the worst thing about it was the Wham! branding and included tracks!

Re: From the Forum question for issue 78

Those moments in the original Tomb Raider when you entered a new area and the camera pulled way back to show what a large space you were in... fantastic atmospheric moments and a great way to demonstrate how alone you were in the game.

Hurrah, first time in the mag! But what happened to my Avatar?

First glance, I like it, and just like Iain Lee, I too only just got around to watching Micro Men. And shock horror, I think I agree with him!

Hi, my Issue 58 arrived with lots of the pages not cut correctly, to read the magazine at all I had to slice the pages apart. It's now a complete mess, can I request a replacement please?

Grrrr... my subs copy arrived with loads of pages joined at the right hand edge, after some work with a sharp knife it's in a right old state (but readable now).

Liked the Atari ST article, maybe now's the time to stick my STFM on for sale!
