Apparently this is the "improved" version from the 1988 Play It Again Sam 12 compilation. I'm not sure I want to know what the unimproved version was like :)
Although it could just mean it's been improved/adapted to work with the Master & Compact! :D

I've had that happen to me, I just back away from the wall and it's ok. Has it caused you a problem other than taking off guard?
Glad it's not just me - I thought I was imagining things to start with!! :roll:

Re: High Score Challenge Season 15 - Rd 4 - Blagger

It’s a slow start! A couple of times I’ve ended up inside the walls - is this a bug? I’m playing on a Compact. I’ll try and get a screenshot if it happens again! #-o

Re: Worth Taking a Look At

For music fans - a rare EMR box and software. Is this what was used by pop groups back in the day?

Re: Today I received.....

An Oric Atmos, which flew over to Western Canada from France! Very interesting to compare it with the Beeb, and of course it's left in the dust!!
