Podcast 95 – Thundercade

One of us is well versed in Thundercade. A shmup. A very good shmup. The best shmup. I don’t know of a better shmup, do you? I mean, really. It’s a shmup. God save the shmup.

The other has been away. A long way away. Probably a lot of miles. To the best place. Have you seen the donuts over there? I like donuts. Who doesn’t? God save the donuts.

What were we doing again?

Podcast 94 – Space Harrier

No Victor this week, so Shaun is joined by The Taggsta and Daz Domination from ‘Stralia, and we have returned to the Fantasy Zone to shoot mammoths in the face. No sign of Opa Opa this time, just a guy with a gun on a mission to destroy. Fly like a really fast bird, or maybe a quick insect, all over the screen. Don’t run into owt or you may die. Peace.

Podcast 93 – Donkey Kong

Oh my lord – this one is a big ‘un. Literally, an 800lb gorilla in the room! Barrels, fireballs, ladders, girders, apes! What more could one want from a single arcade game from 1981?

We were also present at the Cambridge History of Computing Arcade Experience and it was AWESOME. Listen in to find out how we got on with both of the above…

Podcast 92 – Mega Twins

Singing, dancing, impressions, the medium of higher thinking – you name it, we don’t cover any of it in this podcast. Cool arcade stuff, what we’ve been playing and a review of some bobbins game IS what we do this time. Oh yes. We ask ourselves is “Mega Twins” just a cheesey euphamism for a lady’s bosoms?

Podcast 90 – Fantasy Zone 2

Welcome to the Fantasy Zone – get ready! For this show we delve into the multi-coloured eye-bleed world of Opa-Opa (so good they named him twice). This game plays a tad like Defender – but is it better? No. In fact, is it better than anything at all? Join us and find out.
