Your Favourite Lemmings (and Lemmings like) Games?

I love the original Lemmings and Oh No More Lemmings, I originally had these on my ST the mouse control did help. But I'm very, very impressed with the Master System version it's just like its 16-bit brothers. Like the OP I thought Lemmings 2 lost some of the easy to play design. I had Lemmings 3D f...

Broken Sword II: Smoking Mirror

"I glanced over the books, vaguely hoping to find a copy of 'How to deal with poisonous spiders while tied to a chair'." These games do make me chuckle. Scotland remember to have a conversation with the goat later In the game (you need to show it a particular item) Pure gold ! One of the greatest co...

The 8-bit Home Computer Users Thread

The Amstrad CPC range is a curious beast when utilised correctly it could through some impressive graphics around. More often than not though it got an half assed Spectrum port with minimal colour that also ran slower than the Spectrum equivalent. I once had a GX4000 but it is horrendously expensive...

The 8-bit Home Computer Users Thread

Pfft ! You never hear of the good old British Speccy giving up after 30+ years ! I kid of course. Personally from experience as I'm now on my third Atari ST (I still have my original Spectrum from when I was 8 years old - still going strong). The second ST I 'upgraded' to the STe version, over my or...

Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars

In retrospect I agree the puzzles in the Middle Eastern section are amongst the weakest, but I found the games humour strongest at this point. The kebab seller with the toilet basting brush, the taxi driver's enthusiastic sales pitch (and George's resigned replies), the American tourists and of cour...

2015/2/11: Sega CD: Wolfchild, Jaguar XJ220, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

Wolfchild and Jaguar both games that flew under my radar, will need to take a look, enjoyed the reviews.
Never liked Power Rangers (after my time) so I'll give that a miss.

Sega Saturn gameshark or action replay?

I cannot give you any information on the Gameshark as I've never used one. I do however have the Action Reply with (thus far) 3 import games Gale Racer, Dead or AlIve and Grandia. I get some sound issues with Grandia but the other two work flawlessly. The other benefit to the Action Reply is it doub...

Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars

This is one of my favourite games, I played through the original PS1 version years ago, chronic load times included. I obtained this again for iOS (Director's Cut) and had even more of a blast. They did make that damn goat puzzle easier in the updated version though - it took me weeks to figure that...

Why has there been no crash like in 1983

I'm not sure how you can hold Zool 2 up. The game is a conversion from an Amiga title, the game suffers from slowdown on the Jaguar, a case could be made that the CD32 version is better.
I don't think you can say the Jaguar is a 2D powerhouse if it struggles to run an Amiga game.
