Re: Atari Gamer Magazine+Homebrew Heroes.

Anything to get the old conversation going is a good thing.

Re: Was the Commodore 64 a quantum leap?

Somehow games on the A8 always seemed "harder". Part of that was the very metallic pokey sound, but the pixels and colours were sharp and vibrant... Dropzone plays faster, has more foes etc and seem to recal Archer saying folks should use the C64 version to practice on, then play the A8 version.Res...

Re: Atari Gamer Magazine+Homebrew Heroes.

Would love to hear other tales, that MIDI stuff sounds like just the ticket, going to check out commieusers link as well in a moment. Greyfox also has a superb Coin-Op guide book done, but just needs to sort out publishing and his next (digital) book project will be based on the ST, so if anyones in...

Re: Atari Gamer Magazine+Homebrew Heroes.

All Atari love is welcome (ex-2600 owner myself as well).The A8 magazine basically trying to adress the gulf that has been lack of proper A8 coverage for years in likes of Retro Gamer Magazine, Gamestm, Edge etc, where A8 version of a game would never seem to be mentioned.Situation improved with RG ...

Re: Time Warp Arcade

I should remember the cost is only the price of admission, if next I holiday in Somerset. 'We' looked at what was best option, price wise and went with 'pay on the door, everything on free-play', which seemed best option.Fingers crossed it'll work. Idea just to bring a degree of old schol fun back ...

Re: Help recognising 8bit games

Looking back at both the A8 and the C64 as i have been these past few months, odd how your mind plays tricks.I never considered a lot of C64 games to have a 'washed out' look to them, but when i watch '8 Bit wars' type comparison video's, C64 versions often give that impression. When it's dealing wi...

Must be a few ex-Atari 8 Bit (and current?) owners on here, plus other 'Retro' sytstems.Thought you might like to check out a few digital magazines that have tried to give coverage to games and systems the mainstream media sadly seem to ignore

Re: Was the Commodore 64 a quantum leap?

When i look at hardware of past and i think of say the 3DO, it was a huge leap over the SNES for example in handling texture mapping for example, but it's 2D abilities were way lower than the SNES as SSF2T proved (less parallax scrolling in backdrops) and Jez San was very vocal about.The Playstation...
