Has anyone managed to get their hands on the latest issue yet?

The Choose Your Favourite Game

This is a game which I thought was fun, which I played on a forum many moons ago. It can give a nice insight into why people like certain things and helps people get to know each other's tastes. Players ask a question such as, "Which do you like better, Pepsi or Coca-Cola?" You answer and, most impo...

That's a tough one. I am the type of person who likes to give ONE answer to questions such as these, rather than a list as it's far more fun to try and come up with one. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City will have to be my choice. It's set in 1986, a great year for me (and also the year the first Dizzy ga...

Looking forward to this issue, thank you for the info.

Good to see Retro Gamer still going strong. It's a testament to the popularity of older games that there's a magazine devoted to them and that it's nearing it's 75th issue.

Is There Anything You'd Have Changed About The Game?

Nothing in life is perfect and we can all probably think of movies or books which could have been better in some areas. I suppose the same could apply to computer games, too. The first Dizzy game is my favourite Dizzy game and I'd even go as far as saying it's my favourite Amstrad game ever! It was ...

I Can't Believe I Memorized The Route

In Fantastic Dizzy , the bit with the mine cart gave me a headache after two attempts. After trying it twice, I became frustrated with the dead ends and the trolls blocking your way. :dizzy_mad: So I did something which a family member told me was odd - I memorized the route until I knew it off by h...

Right you are - the timing was tricky on that one.

For me, that wasn't frustrating. That was annoying! :v2_dizzy_mad:
