I found my childhood friends I never had!

Post by ZXareL&Rtome »

Hello all!

Can't believe I just found this place, I grew up on the Acorn Electron.
The Acornsoft classics of Hopper, Boxer, Guardians, Starship Command, Sphinx Adventure, made up my first experience of computers.
After graduating to Codename Droid, Dunjunz, Citadel, Thrust, Repton And the forever impossibly difficult Psycastria I became addicted.
Over the years I've gone back to my childhood comfort through emulators and a few years ago I made some maps for Dunjunz! Which (when searching for them again) led me to this forum..

Looking forward to killing time talking about the good ol days on here!
