I used my remaining steam credit on Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon city as it's on a daily deal. Well chuffed as I really didn't expect it to be on offer, ever :lol:

Thanks :) As it happens, Atic Atac was one of my favourite Ultimate games (Jetpac has to take No.1 slot) but unfortunately i can't play any of the games as it didn't have the cassette cable and i don't have one spare. (My other Speccy is a +2) I tested the sound and the speaker works fine.

All in all, very pleased indeed. Especially as the whole package came to the grand total of ........£5 :shock: :mrgreen:

Ultimate Ghosts'n'Goblins. Almost like new, bought for £8 at CEX. Really happy of that purchase.
Bought also Code Veronica X, just the disc though as I've got the Platinum one in the non-Platinum case and bought Trackmania 2: Stadium.
I'm a big fan of Trackmania, ever since Sunrise.

Not very good iirc. You can play it there in the online java emu, or you can read some of the contemporary reviews to find out more about it. I think its similar to the NES game, hard to say since I've not played that one. I just remember all the Turtle games bar the arcade one being a big let down given the potential of the license.

Its a port of the nes game, I used to play the nes game at a friends house, and I was really excited when it got released for the speccy, which was the only system I had at the time. Sadly it wasn't very good, mainly because it was really easy.

Great find Trev, thats the same model of speccy I had BITD. I suppose you'll be wanting that cassette recorder back now :lol:

Under Defeat for £5. The local indie had a big box of them and I guess they were trying to shift them ASAP for whatever reason.
