Though you meant retro inspection there for a minute. After all this time I still get confused

I am, and I'd like some PET coverage :D I learn't to program on PETs at school, and we had a few games that were really good for the time.

And I don't know anyone who says "Pet" at the end of a sentence in the way you meant :P

That's good to see/read. I'd like to see more Amiga stuff in the mag, though. Any chance of an Alien Breed or Lemmings games series feature? Or how about a games creation feature, say, covering AMOS, Blitz, SEUCK, Reality Construction System etc. Doesn't have to be pages of code, just whether people found them useful, strengths/limits of them etc.

just a thought ...

There was already a Lemmings feature in a past issue (I forget which).

So did I; completely. Which is why I (erroneously) mentioned it. I can't believe how bad my memory's got and I'm only 33. Damn that vodka ....

That's political correctness gone mad.

I request more articles on the 16-bit machines in general. I never owned an ST or Archimedes when they were in widespread use, so any coverage of these machines (in addition to Amiga) would also be appreciated.

The Archie was a 32 bit RISC monster, you heathen! How dare you compare it to the lowly ST? 4 (read it and weep), 4 whole MIPS! Even the 386 couldn't compete. :wink:

OK, seriously. The Archimedes was a very good system. But it lacked them nifty custom chips the Amiga had and didn't get much game support. Still, it has the best Elite version.

I'd be interested in seeing some Archie stuff... my brief experience with the machine was while at college and extended to little more than playing Virus, so I'd like to find out what I missed.

Woops, I've gone off-topic in my own thread ;)
