Out of context Spectrum games

General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

It's a shame I don't actually have a copy of Hungry Horace to take along with me. I've got Horace Goes Skiing as it was one of the ones in the game pack that came with my original Spectrum. I'll take that instead. Close enough, right?
Yep, and spec-chum pics/selfies will get bonus points :)

I'm tempted to pop into Blaby's Double Dragon restaurant - it's an hour's drive away - to ask if their name's inspiration came from two brothers fighting their way across streets to a crazy villain's palace. Who knows what I'll receive, apart from a Cantonese take-away?
Haha please do! What's the worst thing that can happen?
Well, the next video for Reheated Pixels (see signature) is about Double Dragon. This could be an ideal opportunity to travel tens of miles just to film something that'll be on screen for about five seconds for a quick laugh. Just like the previous video, really. I think this is a must!

I never knew that "Blaby", as you call it, is a place. If only we could reload a reality in which Blaby got the DD deal. Actually maybe not...
Oh yes, it's the same town. About a block or two away from Double Dragon! The building is now just miscellaneous shops and small banks. Mind you, it had always pretty much been that way back in the day. I *think* Blaby Computer Games sprung out of a television rentals place there.

Works for me. Just like Silverstone, I get the laugh without having to do the ground work. Even better if you can convince the (presumably soon to be bewildered) owner to give a thumbs-up that the Speccy version "could do better" :mrgreen:
