Tank Attack.

It was a weird board game/video game crossover that game with lots of little tanks. The game would have been better if the rules were more strictly applied.

For example.. if you are in cover you can only be hit at a distance of 1. But you can fire out of cover... and the enemy can fire back and kill you at any distance.

I made up a national anthem for Armania.

It’s basic, but I used to love 3D Painter when I was a kid.

It probably doesn’t hold up, but that’s not the issue.

Where can I find Steve Davis 128k? It’s definitely my favourite game by CDS as my friends and I used to setup our own little tournaments using a pen and paper, then playing the actual game! But I’d love to see what enhancements are in the 128k “hack”!

Ooooh, boy. Out of all the weeks where the mythical Steve Davis Snooker 128K could be brought up again, it happens when the fantasist behind it, is the major target of (very justifiable) anger.

Steve Davis Snooker 128K does not exist. It has never existed. It was the invention of 'Mr Kizza' aka Kieren Hawken, probably better known as the 'Laird' of Laird's Lair. Years ago, he wrote on the AtariAge forum that he wrote this game for the ZX Spectrum, along with some budget titles. Some huge huge stuff has kicked off this week about him. I know this forum likes to avoid drama, so all I can say, is take a look elsewhere for what Kieren has been up to!

Ah, I did joke on Twitter this week that we'd never genuinely see Steve Davis Snooker 128K on the Speccy!
