Memories 2013

Post by Jianso »

Not my first, but my most influential.

Zzap! June 1987

The cover tape was amazing.


The 3d demo (quick google) The Day The Universe Died
I thought a new age in C64 3D games was approaching..
I was as wrong as I was young.

Gribbly's Special Day Out - I saw this as a great test of new joysticks.

Konix Speedking was the best but hurt after a while,

Konix Navigator was actually slightly better.

Last Ninja Demo

and Jeff's stuff.. Made In France..?!

Anyway, some memories from me.

I've been away a long time - I actually contributed a little once - but now I'm back... and everyone seems to have left.

Is the C64 retro mag scene dead or am I barking up the wrong tree?
If everyone looked the same and you didn't know your name, how would you find you?

Not dead, just quiet.

Most important link is Bombjack's archive at

I got the DVD collection from Bombjack a couple of years ago. Very impressive collection, but I haven't actually read much off it.

I wonder if I need a tablet to use on the toilet so I can read all these scans! It never occurs to me to read them on the laptop. Too much attention distraction from the Internet I guess.

Too much information? ;)
