Oldschool Gaming - reviewing new games on classic computers

Originally released in late 1982, the Commodore 64 is probably one of the best known 8-bit computers. It survived commercially until the mid 1990's and is another machine that has been pushed way past what it's designers originally intended on the graphics and sound fronts.

There's animals in Zoo Mania but they're not very manic... but players will be as time runs out!

It's time for another Fedora-wearing, heroic explorer to descent underground into danger.

The further adventures of the Toclafane... erm, Stash as he tries to take over the planet..
