Re: +3 was too expensive?

I guess it was reasonable but back then i balked at spending 200quid on a spectrum
it didnt seem right to have a disc drive but the same graphics hardware limiting things.

+3 was too expensive?

Does the addition of a disc drive instead of casette really need an extra 100 quid?

and this was in 1989 when the Megadrive was out for about the same price :D

Re: Sample for sound effect?

it doesnt sound like AY or Beeper, but I could be wrong.

Sample for sound effect?

Does the Horace vs the Robots game use a sample for the laser sound?

Do any other games use samples for sound effects?
