For The Beeb Friends....

I don't think I've ever made a more gay topic name, but...



Anyone tried out any of the Superior Interactive PC remakes, properly?

I'd be sorely tempted, if I wasn't so gosh-darnit brassic at the moment. My censored computer costs me more than my car...



[ If Retro Gamer wants to pay for my registration fee for the classic pack, I'd be more than happy to reciprocate with some stunningly eloquent reviews... bargain! ;) ]

Why do people feel the need to call everything gay at the moment?

Oh and I have censored your uncensoring.

I won a copy of Repton in their newsletter competition once, was a decent enough remake.

Because it evokes feelings of an impromptu male-bonding session in the forest with copious amounts of nitro-9

I think I'll buy that one and clock it, and then see where the mustard is...

The mustard's where it always is, in the cupboard behind the tins of soup.

I bought all the Repton re-makes - utterly brilliant (except 2, which suffered as it did in the day from being too difficult to complete in one sitting, with no save).

Only one i've got is Repton for the Pocket PC. Some great levels, last few really took me ages to complete but well worth the small purchase price.

Apparently they're working on that... Quest and Codename:Droid too... :D

Having completely exhaused the free trials I've now become convinced... just need to scrape together the virtual pennies now, or sleep with the right people.

But Repton 2 does have save-states! At least it says so in big neon signage on its page. Perhaps an updated version?

And I still think "Beeb Friends" unfortunately sounds like a low-budget softcore man-on-man movie... but that might be linked with a vivid nightmare I once had, later entitled, "musical bumming"....

I bought Repton 3 a while back, and it was just as fun as the original. Played some of the demos such as Ricochet which were good too.

Unfortunately, TM, those 'in progress' games have been 'in progress' for absolutely ages. Seems production has dropped off somewhat.

Also, as Tony Oakden confirmed on these very forums, he's not involved in the making of Quest :(
