Re: Level 9 adverts

Added Colossal adventure and Adventure quest 16K versions to the missing games thread.
Can you spot an advert for a 16K Dungeon adventure?

Re: Level 9 adverts

I have seen this, and similar adverts.
Notice it says 16K.
I have never, ever seen a 16K version of these games.
Printing error? Or did they really make Model A versions?

Re: Missing Magazines from the 80s

Thanks John,
We actually had all the games but it is nice to see the magazine.
I will have a quick read through the 3 games and check ours are bug-free when time permits.
Only 2 issues to go now!

On the disc I have for Micro User 10,08 it mentions Mecha-Worm as being on page 113.

Re: Missing Micro User scans

Yeah, it would, but if converting is a problem then a photo will do as we are only typing in a few instructions.
I have typed in hundreds of magazine and book listings over the last few months so this won't be a problem! :D

Secondly, the main game seems to be particularly unresponsive to key presses, though I cou...
