hmm some more

certainly weren't many beat 'em ups released for the 8 bit Acorns...<br> <br> and there were only a couple of games put out that would only run with extra memory available. so i really doubt that this was one...<br> <br> could it have been Yie-Ar Kung-Fu?<br> <br> if not then i'd have to err towards...

Late period gubbins

yeh, i've got ads in Micro User for Explorer too. it was one of those games that needed a lot of extra hardware to play and looked quite interesting but i seem to recall reading a bad review for it somewhere.<br> <br> still, i did always fancy playing it - surely someone, somewhere must have bought ...

Weenies update

i'm sure this'll be posted in the What's New section soon but i thought i'd be first to tell y'all:<br> <br> went looking at Chronosoft's site again to see if they'd got anything else lined up for the Beeb. they haven't. but they do now cater for Beeb emulator fans - they now let you buy Weenies as ...

Firetrack an Arcade Game Copy?

A friend of mine recently lent me his MAME and associated arcade game ROM CD collection (how sad does that sound?).
