Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 188

I enjoyed the Arcade Club article. If you've never been, you have to go. Such an awesome place.

Re: From the forum: Issue 189 - Sonic Adventure

It's a bit clunky in places but overall it's a lot of fun, I still play it from time to time and get a lot of enjoyment from it.

Re: The first games you completed.

I think it must have been Adventure on the Atari 2600. Game 1 was easy, game 2 was trickier and game 3 put all objects in random places and was much harder. It was a great game for its time.

Re: Europe's largest arcade - in Bury !

Made my first visit tonight. All I can say is wow! Had a great time playing all the classics, including Warlords for the first time in many a year. Also played Tempest with a spinner for the first time ever, which made it a completely different experience. I could have stayed all night but will be b...

Re: Experience of importing a classic arcade machine to the UK.

Wow, that is an interesting post. I have often considered getting a classic arcade machine but have always put it off due to the reasons you describe. I am not brave enough to spend that amount of money on 40 year old technology but admire those who do and have the knowledge to keep them working.

Re: From The Forum 182: What's your favourite Mega Drive game

My best games were Theme Park and Lemmings. I used to see those Lemmings when I shut my eyes at night!

Re: Which arcade game were you best at

I'm pretty good at Carnival by Sega. Most players seem to struggle to get past the fifth wave but I can usually do it. Back in the day, I was king of the Scramble machine in our college common room. I could make 10p last an age! I'm still pretty good at it on Mame as well but it gets boring quite qu...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 179

An ok issue for me. Best articles were the Gregg Mayles interview and the making of Aladdin, whilst I always enjoy a Pac Man 2600 article, the game definitely wasn't as bad as is made out these days. Nice to see Quicksilva featured as well as the BBC arcade clone article.

The recent Vic 20 version of Manic Miner is incredible, hard to believe it is running on a Vic.

Re: If not the "Big 3" 8-bits then who?

I'd vote for Vic 20 but it isn't on the list. People forget just how popular a machine it was around 1982-3 until the C64 kind of killed it. Also fond memories of doing my O level Computers exam on a BBC, which I always found easier to program than Commodore or Sinclair computers. Had a few decent g...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 178

An ok issue for me, personally I think 14 pages of Goldeneye is a bit overkill, at least 4 pages too many but hey ho. I've enjoyed the Enduro Racer, Football Manager & MUD features, so some good stuff in there too.

Re: From THe Forum 178: Share your Pac-Man anecdotes with us

I remember going to a holiday camp in 1981, looking forward to playing old favourites Space Invaders & Asteroids. When I got there, I found Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Phoenix & Crazy Climber, all new games to me. I didn't know what to play first, gaming heaven!
