Good job! I did feel pretty shifty when I was forced to hunt down a .tzx of Ski Simulator on emu/rom sites. I am fairly sure my cassette copy is in my mums loft and I loath ROM sites in general. If you can get past the learning curve Ski Sim is a really great game.

Will Ultimate follow?

Great news!

So after 20 years of these games being denied, now you can at last download and play Dizzy without worrrying that police will knock on your door ;)

Big thanks and congratulations to Oliver brothers. You are my heroes today, guys!

That's really good news for the site and big respect to the twins for giving their permission to host the games here. I'm assuming that some of the titles are ones that they own the rights to rather than ones they actually programmed themselves (e.g. some of the Dizzy spin-offs/later titles etc)?

Fantastic news. So is this the first time these have been made (legally) available on any site?
