Re: Uridium on the BBC Micro

If you mean Sphere Of Destiny then yes! It's ridiculously hard though! I know the concept from an Amiga PD thing which I loved (Jump N Roll) but I thing the level design on that was better so it was easier to kind of get in a rhythm with it. I keep meaning to give Sphere another try....

Re: What is your main operating system?

XP. Windows 7 looks OK but I'd need new computers to run it. I can't see me 'upgrading' until MS stop supporting XP.

Re: Nice game, shame about the graphics!

I'd say it's the graphics that make Elixir... it's pretty unique. I like the intro as well - ahead of its time!

Re: Nice game, shame about the graphics!

I'm not really arguing... it could have looked better but it was actually a pretty good conversion of the game as it was before Nintendo's version...

That's probably a bit unfair... this was before Nintendo got a hold of it wasn't it? It's very similar to the original PC version...

Has anyone tried the Electron tape version from this site? Presumably that wouldn't have the same glitch if that's what it is.

I have but I'm not good enough to complete it!

Re: Confuzion track

On a slightly linked note, does anyone know what the track on the other side of Bug Bomb (Virgin) is? It's probably called 'Waiting' (at least it repeats that over and over!). Any idea who the band were? When I was about 5 or 6, my dad brought what must have been the Bug Bomb tape home from work, 'l...

3D Dotty - the graphics as a whole aren't bad but the main character is pathetic... and the green slime could be more menacing!

Cops N Robbers by Atlantis. Based on a VIC-20 game, it looks terrible and is actually pretty annoying (eg baddies, well cops actually, appearing where you are etc) but pretty addictive and a decent game!
