Hi, guys!
I've recently started my own YouTube channel "It's a Pixel THING" where I do weekly videos about retrogaming (Amiga, DOS, Spectrum, etc) and video gaming industry analysis!

Check it out, if you have the time: https://www.youtube.com/user/ThePixelTHING

Thank you very much!


Here's my latest episode: Myth - History in the Making [1992, Amiga] Review

20 years ago, I played this game for infinite hours!
Let's take a look at this awfully addictive game:

I don't think I ever played the Amiga version - well, I can't remember it if I did, anyway.

But I played a lot on the Spectrum version. I loved that game. Super polished.

Hummm.. I believe that there was no spectrum version of this game.. Are you shure?

I've checked world of Spectrum's database and they have no record of it either, so maybe Sokurah has made mistake or he remembers another top down racer?

Loving the style lol, i actually thought for a split second you were going to try and convince me it was a christmas review.

What a great version of Aliens that is.

Nicely done.  A version of this game is being ported to the Atari Lynx.
