Yep it's odd that people care about such little sums of money. I've bought a few tapes over the years for the Speccy from homebrewers such as BobS and Jonathan Cauldwell - to me it's part of the fun.

I love buying the games on physical media, kinda where they belong! Jonathan Cauldwell is a modern day retro hero :D

In an ideal world i'll have a speccy set up in a room and i'll be able to load up games on tape. But due to less and less time (due to a 2 year old !) i have to make good of any free time i have, so its emulators all the way for me.

To do unto this as I want others do unto it (or something), here is something I'd like see both covered in the mag and also as a part of a comprehensive list linked from the magazine's web site: http://www.atarimax.com/myide/documentation/

I agree with ipmarks that some more obscure machine releases could be covered, though of course these are quite few and far between.
Would be cool to see and hear of any new games for Mattel Aquarius, Sord M5, Texas TI99, Commodore 16, Oric, Dragon 32, BBC/Electron etc.

If anyone has written any decent games for any of these, Cronosoft are always looking to release them on cassette.

RG is usually pretty good at covering Oric releases, they've covered all the major ones in recent years afaik. The only hiccup was Skool Daze, which would have been covered had the author not requested not to since he wasn't able to get explicit permission for the release from the current rights holders. Rather than have it publicised in a major mag and get pulled, it was decided it would be better to hold back, do some bug fixes and let it creep out.

I've been writing down some ideas for making a smooth-scrolling Cannabalt type game for the VIC-20.
Is that obscure enough?

See .TAP download. You'll need a good Speccy emulator.

Just wanted to share some of these games my brother created in one line of code for the spectrum, its more technically interesting that fun i must admit but you can play them in your browser! 8)

Also, check out the free PD games section at http://www.pouet.net. Games are available for most computers and consoles, though bear in mind that "modifications" may be required to run some of the freeware on offer.
