I would argue the Philips CD-i was the first proper home port, given it came out at the same time as the Mega CD version but was actually arcade perfect. The ST version came out a year after the Amiga version in 1990. I didn't realise that...

Re: The History of Frogger arcade documentary

Maybe you should try joining in instead of just link dropping.

Re: Happy Birthday ATARI JAGUAR!

Are PMs broken?

I've sent a few today but people don't seen to be getting them and they don't show in either my outbox or sent folder.
