Retro Gamer - Issue 205

Post by Crusty Starfish » Wed Mar 18, 2020 10:32 am

Well, had this for a few days now and no one posting about this!

A better cover with a Megadrive and SNES with characters facing off.

Inside:

16 Bit war - not read. Will do but not top of the list.
The Evolution of Uridium - BRILLIANT! What a great read :)
Making of Skidmarks and Super Skidmarks - Again, BRILLIANT! I loved these games on my Amiga/Amiga1200.
Minority report - C64. Some real gems there - I've played most but some new ones to have a look at.
Making of Robocop Vs Terminator - Not read. Never played it. Will read it!
Desert Island Disks, Martyn Carroll!! - Nice little read and great to see his choice of games includes a C64 game :wink:
Ultimate Guid to Hard Drivin' - I absolutely HATED this game on every format I ever had the misfortune of playing - even on MAME! Will read just to see what the fuss was about!
History of Heretic - This was a great game so will be reading this.
Reigniting Jetman - no interest in the actual cartoon as wasn't a Crash buyer. BUT great to see Chris Wilkins in Retro Gamer!
Tim Kitzrow - Who?! Looking at his game list, no interest in him.
From the Forum - most excellent as I am in it. :)
Homebrew section is good... other bits n bobs I'm just flicking through.

Overall - a really good issue!

Well, our office has been closed indefinitely so I have plenty to read during my 'breaks' while working from home for the next however many months.

Good one for me this month. Hated the cover mind and I normally don't give a toss. The consoles look weird. Oh, and I imagine some of the cards stats will trigger a few people😂

Ah! Forgot to say about the Top Trump Style cards included. A bit similar to something else I believe :!:

Yeah a good issue, loved the Uridium and Hard Drivin' articles, not read the 16-but war yet, but looking forward to it.

I have to admit though, those "Top Trumps" went straight in our recycling.

One category similar. Different selection, different rules.
