Wow!

That is pretty cool - the historical intros are brillant - and you attention to detail with all the changed logos etc is really nice.

I can think of a few others for disk#2 - Pengo, Firetrack & Crypt Capers come to mind and I always prefered Watford Electronics version of Centipede (Crawler) which was in Mode 1.

Those were great times where the changing of one letter was enough for you to release a copy of a game!

All of these discs have now been re-posted due to finding various spelling mistakes in some of the original versions posted over on the 30th Anniversary thread.

regards,
Mick.
