  1. Pro BMX wasn’t a budget price, though. It also had more than one set of courses.
  2. What always surprised me was how Lola chassis was dominating in Indycar but stuck at the back of the F1 grid.
  3. I put a lot of time into Frightmare and made progress, but it is a flawed piece despite the interesting atmosphere.
  4. What is interesting about it is the fact it plays differently on the C128...
  5. See, I always preferred the atmosphere of Paradroid to Quazatron. I did play a lot of Magnetron though, best run saw me clear a couple of satellites. While it can be frustrating, the various systems can be learned.
  6. There’s a conversion of Windjammers on the way, been playing the latest alpha
  7. I own an original of Soko-Ban on C64 disk. I remember reading the review at the time, but I didn’t get it until I first got a disk drive in 1989. It was a bargain too, five quid from a mail order company.
  8. Gutted for England’s women, losing in the final again
  9. Maddison off with a hamstring injury...
  10. Tournament Arkanoid - an updated version of the Spectrum conversion, with the levels from 1987’s updated arcade variant (made by Taito USA) featuring new, tougher levels. https://bit.ly/tourark
  11. Ipswich avoided the giant-killing at Bracknell, rotated the squad and basically had to play for about 15 minutes to win it. The reward? A home tie against Buxton.
  12. Yes and no. It was fun once I had worked out how to work the telemetry screen and actually start lift off.
  13. Toki for Amstrad has just been released, the same team is currently working on Mighty Street Fighter with some cute chibi-style sprites. https://www.amstradggp.com
  14. On my best ever Apollo 18 run, I got all the way to the Moon, captured the satellite and then burned up on re-entry... so close.
