Its not Oric. Not that that helps much, but I was trying to think of systems that commonly did 'big text' for status bars and the like. Oric often does that as its quirky display has a couple of lines of text at the bottom by default.

You are correct Ant - it isn't from the Oric :D

Will throw clues tomorrow if no one gets it. (maybe late though)...

Actually, I'll give a clue to help BIG TIME.

It is from a mainstream computer from the 80's. So that is NOT Oric, BBC, Amstrad :mrgreen: :wink: , Atari........................

I'm guessing "Scot's big weekend"; "Fatal Rewind"; "Sheffield Shoot em up" or "Retro Blaster" am I close?

No to all the above.

This game was actually written by someone who writes for Retrogamer.

The link to the weekend event is something that Sheffield was famous for.

This is probably the most difficult screenie I have done and my clues are sh!t. :lol:
