I liked how there were nods in it to people who were expecting a re-hash of previous themes; the Hoth-like battle setup was just one of them. But instead it used them as a sort of shorthand fo...

Re: File permissions.

This was exactly my point. Far too many people do not recognise that as the definition of 'freeware'. They just assume 'free' means the same as 'public domain'. A solution to this problem may simply be a short warning or explanation of that term. Or another option in that field to distinguish betwee...

Re: File permissions.

OK, another issue has come uo. Why does 'original price' have to say 'freeware'? It could just say 'free'. But if you're going to use the term 'freeware' then is it possible to add a reminder (there or in the downloads section) that redistribution of the downloadable content without permission is no...

What about Cyclone? That was a better game than TLL.

I think Highway Encounter is the one I played the most. I played Deflektor more on my ST.

Ant Attack was technically good, but Atic Atac is the better game.

F for Fairlight.

Gotta get a Joffa one in and H and C are done, so Green Beret. It's was certainly better than Ghosts'n'Goblins.

T for Tomahawk?

Can I please have a '+' on the end of Buzzsaw+?

(Bit disappointed it didn't get a Crash Smash in the 2018 annual. Keeps getting criticised over sound from people who expect AY tunes all the time. It wasn't a 128K game).

Yep, and 'H' for 'Head Over Heels'.
