Retro Gamer issue 111


Recommended Posts

A great new issue to start the new year, on sale now.

Cover is based on classic Lode Runner artwork, the main feature marking the 30th anniversary of Lode Runner - this article has some interesting facts that a lot of people will not know.

Video preview from strider:

Also in this issue

From The Archives - Imagitech Design, a British company who forged strong links with Atari

Loved the Desert Islands Discs interview this month (I think I say that almost every month). "Do you think the rejection of the games was down to racism?" "No, they were just crap" :D Really great, down to earth guy.

I loved Shahid's answer to my question on cancelled projects too.
