Getting very near the end now though it's a bit depressing with the letters page full of people saying bye because they are upgrading etc.

Starting issue 104. C65 EXISTS! http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... azine=zzap

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 13 Nov

Back To The Feature 1991, Satanic film planning department still up to their old tricks. A good few score boxes missing. Same with BTTF 1990

I105 done. Last full price review, which was Graham Gooch World Class Cricket, which was basically an older game with some code changes.1of2

Iain ‏@ZZAPRRAP 14 Nov

See the story on GTW64: http://www.gamesthatwerent.com/gtw64/gr ... s-cricket/ Also interesting making of the magazine article: http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... 5&page=040 The end is near! 2of2

I've been a busy bunny on Twitter! ( https://twitter.com/ZZAPRRAP )

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 17 Nov

Starting the last ever official issue, 106. No full price or budget reviews... Not so great for a games review magazine!

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 17 Nov

Poor last Back To The Feature & also a round-up of prev 15 issues, but Mel Croucher made a return to help Lloyd: http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... 6&page=042

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 17 Nov

And that's that! Out with a whimper rather than a bang. Soon after, my childhood cat, Zoe died and then C= went bust. Bit of a crap period!

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 17 Nov

But wait!! There's more, 8 years later and out comes the fan based issue 107!: http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... 7&page=001 Rather good it was too!

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 17 Nov

It also had an article by me in it http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... 7&page=014 … Edited to within an inch of its life by a certain editor though @gordonhoughton ;)

In relation to issue 107, you can get various PDFs of it here: http://www.zzap64.co.uk/zzap107/zzap107misc.html

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 22 Nov

It's a wrap in issue 107. Nice to see most of the website mentioned in it are still around: http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... azine=zzap

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 22 Nov

But wait, there's more!! The Def Tribute to Zzap!64, done by some crazy Dutchman in 2005... :) http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... ?article=7

Reading the Wizball ZzapBack in the Def Tribute issue. I gave it 99%, kinda cool being on the same page as @GaryPenn Still my fave C64 game

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 22 Nov

Reading about the Cult of Zzap and what do you know, the website is still there! http://cult-of-zzap.org/ :-D

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 22 Nov

Well, I'm finished at last. Only took about 5 years (with some long gaps) but I got there! Next step is 2 check the data for errors etc 1of2

Iain @ZZAPRRAP 22 Nov

and then move the companies data into a separate table and then start writing the code to display it all. 2of2

I haven't been posting the tweets here for a while, mainly since they have been retweets and the like. Although there is a lot going on at the moment for the birthday:
