One for the ZX Spectrum fans
« on: 04 July, 2011, 10:32:46 am »
The ZX Spectrum Elite app for the iphone/ipad is FREE until July 7th

Comes pre loaded with -
Saboteur
Buggy Boy
Chuckie Egg
Turbo Esprit
Frank Bruno Boxing
Harrier Attack
Roller Coaster
Beyond the Ice Palace
Saboteur 2
Batty
Kokotoni Wilf
Battle Ships
Grand National

Then theres 23 additional games packs. You can get the lot for £15 or individual packs for a quid or so.

I just paid £1.19 for the Julian Gollop Collection :
Laser Squad
Chaos
Lords of Chaos
Hopping Mad
and...... (takes a deep breath) ..... Rebelstar Raiders 1 & 2 !!!

Possibly the greatest £1.19 I've ever spent

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Laser Squad - best game ever.

They really should bring out a good online version instead of asking your mate to turn his back. Ah those were the days.

Check out Frozen Synapse on PC as my mate just sent me a version of that, its kinda similar but blows my mind with too many options.
Hmm, just pretend I wrote something witty eh?

Harrier Attack!

I wasted my tweenage years on that game. Thankfully I'm too poor to afford an i-Phone.

Harrier Attack - the game I wasted my childhood on as a precursor to then wasting my adolescence on Monkey Island (Amiga 500+) and the like. My mum, in her mid 60s, stills goes on about Ant Attack and Pyjamarama.

God I remember Ant Attack! I'm old, old and over the hill!

I old enough to know from memory that Pyamarama was a sequel to Automania, a donkey-kong clone set in a garage.

It was followed by Herbert's Dummy Run and then Everyone's A Wally and then Three Weeks in Paradise (all featuring Wally Week or his family, Herbert being his son).

I also remember Magic Knight (best Masteronic Games ever) and know that N.O.M.A.D. stands for Nemesis Organisation Mobile Attack Droid.

To think that I found Eureka! by Ian Livingstone the pinnacle of dramatic possibility, when the pterodactyl (I think it was) gets you.
