Oh, no I did sometimes leave them lying there in Cannon Fodder, and hearing their cries for aid/mercy/sympathy.

However, I found it much more fun to keep shooting them and see the bodies bouncing about all over the place...

As you can see I was a very happy child :lol:

Ooh, Hungry Horace, Horace Goes Skiing or Horace And The Spiders

Tough one!

I love em all.

I played Horace Goes Skiing first, and I probably spent the most time playing that one, so Horace Goes Skiing probably gets my nod.

Hmmm. I've always played my Speccy and Megadrive games since I first got them I've regularly fired them up in the years since. As they've always been played, my memory has always remained pretty fresh. I'm not one of these who have boxed up their games only to rediscover them years later, I've alway...

Granny's Garden!


WOW!

That takes me back!

I thought I was the only one who remembered that game!

I loved it, esp. when the bee stung the Dog on his Bottom, I thought that was very funny!

Wow!

Thanks for bringing back a nice memory!

Hi everyone! Me and my friends definatley had Spectrum sessions. We were all born between 1980 and 1983, as we went to the same Infants, Junior and Secondary schools, some of course older and younger than others. I got my 48K in 1986 when I was 5, and my whole world opened up! My friends got theirs ...

Where have my posts gone?

Just a quickie (Said the Actress to the Bishop :wink:)

I was looking for my Favourite Text Games and Favourtie TV Games posts and I can't find them :(

I had a few more to add to them

If anyone returns them safely then I won't tell the police, or my Mum, and there may even be a reward...

I would say that 90% of my Retro Gaming is via emulation. Although sometimes I do fire up the Speccy and bring the Megadrive out of retirement. But as I've said in previous posts, my Speccy is 20 years old, nearly 21 in fact, and so are a lot of the cassettes, so I try not to use it that often. Plus...

Again no Immortal :evil:

It seems a good collection from EA though. Is that a final list?

It would just top it off for me if The Immortal was in there...
