Podcast 77 – VS Dr. Mario

Seeing as we’ve never done any kind of seasonal podcast – Shaun came up with the excellent idea of an end of year review – so, here it is with a review of VS Dr. Mario for good measure!

Pills – everywhere! Can we help Dr Mario Phd eradicate the germs and, er, eradicate more germs? Colourful, puzzley fun this episode. Shaun’s been busy with a bunch of spreadsheets and pie charts for this episode too! Mmmm, pies…

Podcast 76 : Motos

Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear. Have we picked the worst game so far to play? Is it worse than Peter Pack Rat and Rolling Thunder? We decide! Actually, we’re doing this for the listeners, so they don’t have to – or that may be a lie and a good excuse to go back to some really good games, instead!

Listen out for a new segment on Console / Computer Ports From The Arcade.

Podcast 74 : Berzerk (Fast Bullets)

You’re locked in endless rooms of evil one eyed Roberts hell bent on ruining your day with deadly lasers, or a deadly wall, or a deadly Robert or a deadly bouncing ball with a face on it. There’s a pattern forming here… Anyhoo – blast them and keep running for the exit. Watch out at about 7000 points, as the deadly Robert lasers get REALLY fast!

What is a BUTTER pie?

Podcast 73 : New rally X

Racing around in your blue racing car, picking up flags – when all of a sudden, an idiot in a red car BANGS into you! Why didn’t you do a blow off to stun him in his tracks? Learn this tip and more on the 10 pee documentary podcast. More terrible singing from the ten pence orchestra – sorry about that. Shaun has been Mr Helper again, while Victor has been busy on Centipede and Battlezone.
