Another postive from me regarding Jumping Jack , never played it before but I must get hold of it and play it on my Spectrum emulator some time, I think it's another case of you don't need amazing graphics to get a really good game.
The Kevin Toms interview was interesting aswell, there can't be many 8 bit users who didn't own or play Football Manager at some point, I remember changing all the players and team names to various silly and odd things, provided a lot of amusement and we did the same thing again with Sensible Soccer!
Booty - a fantastic little game, always wanted it on the BBC, but it never happened. Tales Of The Arabian Nights did appear on the BBC, I remember seeing the usual miserable reviewer in Acorn User reviewing it as part of 10 Computer Hits, saying "It's awful 1/10" that was it !! , so I decided to buy it and make up my own mind, it's not awful at all, frustrating and hard, but in there is a good game, excellent graphics, varied screens, but it's just so hard, odd keyboard controls and strangely silent! a bit of polish and this would of been a really good game.
Great to see from the Archives Audiogenic feature, one i've been waiting for, for ages ! they were a real powerhouse on the BBC market, I always wondered why Icon software titles kept appearing on Audiogenic compilations, now I know ! Audiogenic produced some fantastic BBC games - too many to list , but games such as Shark, Impact, Ransack, Thunderstruck and Omega Orb are well worth checking out, they supported the BBC to the end, and the last one I bought was the brilliant Helter Skelter. Shame you couldn't get any interview with Peter Scott - would of been good to hear from him in additon to Gary Partis, two of the best BBC programmers in my opinion.
