But I think the best buy of the week came from a little day trip to the lovely East Kent coast town of Ramsgate. Passing a little local shop, which looked like a poor version on CEX, windows full of stolen mobile phones etc., Pamela convinced me to have a look inside and boy am I glad she did. Tucked in the corner I spotted a bunch of ZX Spectrum gear. The guy wanted £1 each for any of the games, and about £20 for a Speccy+2. I passed on the console, already having a number in the loft, but many of the games were well sort after. At the top of the pile my eyes shot out on storks when I saw 3 Psygnosis/Melbourne House games were still SEALED! – Double-megaboner-w00t!
Another great discovery of the week was that the rather awesome Commodore Amiga emulator, UAE4Droid, is now – as the name implies – available for Android phones.
So I can play Chaos Engine! on my mobile phone!
The controls take a lot of getting used to, and would be much nicer playing it on a 10.1 android tablet. This has also definitely helped me decide whether I need a Samsung Android Tab or the iPad2! Android wins and will get my money!
Now, at time of typing, I notice the PSX (PS1) emulator is also working on Android, so I’m off to install Final Fantasy 7 and RollCage. Hopefully more to report next week.
Thanks for reading and go have a great week!
