Especially as it's SOOO playable in MAME. I did see an online feature - can't remember where - comparing ALL the VR ports and the arcade version. Some quite MAJOR differences. I'll see if I can find it

Here you go :D :

Much obliged - I'll have a gander at that right now (erm, at lunchtime, honest gov)

edit - that was time well spent, well worth a look.

Wasn't there meant to be some Shining Force love at some point?

Has the Thunder Force series been covered properly before? I'd love to see that, especially IV.

A feature/interview with Pete Cooke would be awesome. I've babbled elsewhere about my love for Micronaut One, but his ZX Spectrum work (Tau Ceti, Academy, Stunt Car Racer) make him something of an 8 bit hero.

He certainly should be regarded alongside the likes of Geoff Crammond, Costa Panyani and Mike Singleton as one of the forward thinking designers/coders of that era.

A feature on Sorcery+.

The CPC version won many awards and was much acclaimed on release. Disc only, great graphics and enhanced over the far inferior C64 and Spectrum versions.

They seem to be long forgotten now but even the most popular magazines of the time (Your Computer for instance) carried type-ins for them alongside the other machines and reviewed software etc for them at the time. The Sharp Users Club (the original one started in '83) is still going strong. Long overdue covering these machines if you ask me. Not that anyone else remembers them, but they are interesting from a pure retro point of view.
My mate had one of these back in the Eighties. I seem to remember that the games he had were awful! I think they couldn't handle much of the way of graphics, everything graphically was made up from the standard character set, like a ZX81. Then again, it's about 20 or more years ago, so i could be talking utter hogwash!

How a bout a tiny tiny article on the watara supervision, I had of these as a kid, my dad wouldnt buy me a gameboy, he bough me this p.o.s insted and a load of games becasue it was cheaper and the shop assistant said it was going to be "big"!!!!!

Anyway, for those not in the know:

Would be kinda interesting, and maybe other handheld clones to go along with the article!?!?
