  1. The Bi-Weekly British Backtrack - Jet Set Willy

    We're going back to a software review this time with a review of a distinctly British game, and no it isn't Tea Drinking or Warm Beer related, it's the retro platformer Jet Set Willy.

    Jet Set Willy was one of my favourite games, and it's finest version was on one of my favourite systems. Perhaps a little surprisingly it was a sequel which is often a curse but in this case is most definitely not. It was the sequel to Manic Miner, both games being written by Matthew Smith.

  4. Grand Prix Legends

    GRAND PRIX LEGENDS

    Grand Prix Legends is an old racing sim in every sense of the word, not for the faint of heart this is a true racing sim. Developed by Papyrus Design Group and published in 1998 by Sierra Entertainment, it simulates the 1967 Formula One season and is considered one of the most realistic racing games ever. It is definitely not an arcade experience, there is not a weapon or a power up in sight, this is for the die hards only.
    Of all the classic Formula One ...
