A better in-game screen for Sophia.

Also please update the description by adding the Russian and Swedish language versions.

Re: Knockabout

Hi Bob, I just discovered your game, very nice job!

I didn't know about the original title, so it comes as a refreshing surprise to me. Well done.

Re: Feud by Bulldog (Mastertronic)

Ahhh, an old favorite of mine. For just £ 1.99, or Lit. 5000 if you lived here, Feud provided you with a nice maze/collect title, which unfortunately became too easy when you understood that just by collecting every spell ingredient whilst avoiding Leanoric and Hieke, the gardener, and then hitting ...

Re: Joe Blade

I liked the first and third chapters of the series, very good value for money. The second chapter seemed rather boring to me however.

Re: Using DivIDE/MMC for new games

Judging from what I read from various sources, many of those who still use, even occasionally, real hardware own such interfaces. My games from Seto Taisho Vs Yokai on have been designed with the DivIDE/DivMMC in mind. First I emulated it through a CF card and SpecEmu, then a couple of years ago I p...

Here is my review from Spectrum 2.0: Paul Kersey - a name which is synonymous with bad luck, judging by what happens to anyone who is closely associated to him - in the third instalment of its saga, has agreed to ...

Re: Best BASIC game

Re: Best magazine covertape

For me, it was the covertape which came with the December 1988 issue of SU, with Finders Keepers, Spellbound and Knight Tyme. I loaded that tape so many times, it's a miracle it still works. Go Bear Go! was also quite nice, and the fact you could create your own levels with the supplied editor was a...
