Re: Judge Dredd, the recovered version, not in SC database?

Spooky! I was looking at this just last night because I was trying to see if there was ever a Ricochet re-release of the Melbourne House game like there was on the C64 (there wasn't, apparently... or at least I couldn't find any signs of one). Anyway, just thought I'd add a link to the original WOS ...

Re: Cover artists

Some more names, all from Reaktor games, and all taken from the credits section on the rear of their respective inlays: Challenge of the Gobots - Eddy King (pic below from my own scan) Deadringer - Richard Edington (inlay is in the archive if you want to check! ;)) Mountie Mick's Deathride - Johnny ...

Re: Little bugs in the database

Whilst I agree about Beach Volley, Inspector Gadget etc I'd still stick with the original publisher as Ocean, Melbourne House etc as they would have licensed them to Erbe, even if they chose not to publish the games themselves in the UK. They were the ones who produced the games and originally adver...

Re: Cover artists

I can help with Scramble Spirits. Here's the bottom left of the manual... https://i.imgur.com/btPoWnA.jpg You can sort of make it out on the actual cover of the game but they slapped the SEGA logo over it. Likewise, it's slightly visible (when you know where to look) on the adverts in the mags too b...

Re: Wanted: Inlays

Could do with a better copy at some point but I guess this'll do in the meantime, right? :D

I'm pretty sure I've got The Fall of Rome somewhere too but that wasn't in especially good nick either. If I find it then I'll upload it.

Re: Little bugs in the database

To add to the Laser Squad info above, I remember doing some poking around with the various releases and expansion pack etc. last year. I posted all my corrections/findings into this thread: https://www.worldofspectrum.org/forums/discussion/55057/ It's a shame that there's probably a ton of other fix...

Re: ZX Vega+ Discussion

Don't forget to check out Slope's Game Room's epic "KickScammers: The VEGA+ Scandal" whilst you can. Daniel posted earlier to say that it will apparently be deleted tomorrow at midday (UK time) "due to a few issues behind the scenes"... 18/12/2018 - Post edited by PJ - Link deleted as no longer exis...

Re: Graal

I might just really suck at this game but maaaan it is unforgiving! Even just getting the game to start by pressing Enter seems to involve some special skill! Parsifal seems to be extremely allergic to acorns and water so I dunno why he thinks he's likely to survive alive skulls, snakes, wizards, sk...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

Obviously you know I am not someone who ever defended the Vega+ campaign (quite the contrary) but there are some fundamental differences between the two campaigns and they really can't be compared as like for like. As far as I'm concerned, to even say that they're both behind schedule would be incor...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

I have to say that I disagree about any similarities between the Vega+ campaign and the Spectrum Next. I never wanted a Vega+ and I'm certainly glad I didn't back it. The whole project should have stopped as soon as the only two people who knew what they were doing left. The so-called "updates" were...
