    Re: I remember when....

    If we're going down the road of old computer games, does anyone else remember a hediously difficult game called spindizzy?? It was one of the most playable games I remember from the 80's, the gameplay was unlike anything else available at the time, never seen anything quite like it since either.

    I also remember a game called sorcery which had some of the best graphics of it's time, that was also very difficult! I liked games that were a challenge.

    Although, my most recent reason for not doing any work is battlefield 2

    @Webman...i remember pretending to play hopscotch at school when i was really little. No one told us how to do it properly

    Talking of green screens, I remember buying a green plastic sheet to stick over the TV for my ZX81 - I got it from WH Smiths. It used to peel at the corners....sticky tape was the answer there, and the best thing to cool down the ZX80 / ZX81 was a carton of milk from the fridge. The heat zinks from the main boards were crap. They used to try and dispatch the heat from the interface at the rear but never did a good job. Rotating a few milk cartons worked wonders....[ Plus I built a wooden unit to keep the ZX81 in so the 16K Ram pack did not fall off the back as that was another problem because of the heat ]

    Re: I remember when....

    You spent ages fiddling with the tone, volume, etc, and waiting for a game to load from tape on a ZX81 (or Acorn Electron) and then it failing

    Or buying Input magazine, spending ages typing in the programmes every week, and then having to wait for the following weeks errata to fix the typos!!

    Then there was the Amiga, and Outrun or supercars II - the latter a favourite to start the Friday night drinking off to!

    I could go on!!!!!

    Don't you love the way you could copy games in those days using a simple tape to tape deck!

    Re: I remember when....

    I was brought up with an Amstrad (don't know what type) and the only game I had was Repton. Then moved on to a Colour Classic Mac, and enjoyed the world of Duke Nukem, Munchies, Deliverance, and Boulderdash. Ah, those were real computer games!

    Ahh, Sonic the Hedgehog on the Megadrive - my wife nearly divorced me over the amount of time I used to play it. She now refers to it as 'Sonic the F****ing Hedgehog'......
