So here’s just a few things I’ve been up to this past week or so, in between juggling a full time job (don’t you hate it when real life gets in the way of fun!)
Firstly, some great times with the US Gold classic: Raid Over Moscow
Street Fighter II made an appearance on the Amiga (and no sign of Kylie Minogue!)
Geoff Crammond graced my Amiga with the fine rendition of a Grand Prix sim..
Another Amiga classic… Thunderhawk!
Broke out the modern kit, but to play my favourite old arcade game… ever!

I bought a nice collection of 2000AD comics (circa early 80’s) from ebay, for less than a fiver. It has re-ignited my interest in the Judge and will begin a journey of repatriation with the story:-
This month marks the 30th anniversary of our faithful Commodore 64. RetroGamer has an excellent write up, check it out:-
I picked up the 2nd edition of Project-X for the Amiga, by the great chaps at Team 17. I was so looking forward to the challenge of this game, it makes R-Type seem so easy. Sadly the disks didn’t work (such are the joys of fleabay sometimes) so I just stared at the box-art and sighed 🙂
1) Another copy of Datastorm for the Amiga. It doesn’t hurt to have a spare of such a classic game.
2) Another copy of Suicide Express for the Commodore 64 – For reason, see above 🙂
3) I bought, probably my 7th version of, a Psion II organiser. I loved this little hand-held beauty. A dream to program and very powerful back in the day. A pocket genius of the 80’s.
4) Cassette version of a Commodore 64 game: Ring of Power.
5) Cassette version of a VIc-20 game: Computer War.
6) Another 50 x 3.5″ floppy disks for the Amiga, random blanks and originals, in a box, for less than a tenner 🙂
7) Cassette version of ‘Thrust’ for the Amstrad (great bloody game!)
8) Cassette version of Meteor Storm (by Quicksilva) for the Spectrum
9) 8 original Star Wars figures from the 80’s, including a Stormtrooper and Han solo (about a fiver)
10) Another 17 old 2000AD comics, circa early 90’s
11) Another copy of The Chaos Engine for the Megadrive (see aforementioned excuse regarding spare copies of classic games)
12) Dragons Fury cartridge for the Megadrive. It looks like a classic pinball game that I had for the SNES – Jackie Crush (jap import)
That’s about it for now… go forth and enjoy yourselves!
