Re: Space Invaders 40 years old today

A legendary game that changed everything. It hasn't aged well and is pretty dull to play these days but as a young boy, that arcade cab blew my mind and kick started my lifelong love of computer games. Getting an Atari 2600 with Space Invaders remains the greatest Christmas present I ever got.

Re: What game would you like to see remade for the VIC-20

Reading the Moon Cresta article this month made me try to think whether there was any sort of version for the Vic 20? Obviously not an official version but a rip off? Considering Moon Cresta was out when the Vic 20 was popular and it is a fairly basic game, I'd be quite surprised if no one had a go ...

Re: New Kickstarter today: Crash 'Magazine' 2018 Annual

I've got it but my wife has confiscated it for Christmas. From what I've seen flicking through, it looks excellent. Great job Boyo.

Re: From The Forum issue 176 - Favourite football game

My favourite is The Boss by Peaksoft on the Spectrum though that is a management game. I used to have some great late night, post pub drunken battles with my mates on World Cup Italia 90 on the Megadrive, back in the day. Great memories.

Re: Retro Gamer - ISSUE 174.

Swearing on the cover just looks wrong. The cover is one of the least memorable I can remember, hopefully the content will make up for it.

Re: From The Forum issue 175 - Sonic 2: Magic or tragic?

I've never understood why Sonic 2 is so highly rated, I'd always choose the first Sonic, which I played to death and my kids love even now.

That is awful customer service. Don't give up BenyoBoy, shame them into giving you what you paid for and a proper apology.

Re: Subscriber since 2012, really close to cancel it

Years ago I ordered some back issues. They took my money and never sent me the issues, eventually admitting they were now out of stock. It took me about 6 months to get my money back after endless emails. After that experience I decided never to become a subscriber and judging by peoples posts on th...

I've always loved Kaboom by Activision. One of the greatest "in the zone" games of all time.
