Anybody know what the game was at the beginning of Big? (I think it's Big, it's like a Wizard - Ice Dungeon Game)

Dr Who tonight had a device called the Atmos installed in every car.

Can I claim that as an Oric reference?

Of course you can, it sort of related to this topic.

First Class also used to have Hypersports featured in it as well as paperboy an 720...

Late 80's/ early 90's neighbours, Pauls office always had an amiga 500 in the corner of the office which never had anything actually running on it, just the famous hand/disk screen....

Couldn't beleive the insanity of it :shock:
A lot of Data East machines also were in the arcade.
Wasnt it Data East who developed the Robocop game on the arcades???? If it was then that would probably explain the above....
