I love Rick D and its sequel.  I had both on the Amiga and my friend had them both for the Speccy.  I used to bring my Mig round to his house and we would have 2 tv's side by side with the computers hooked up so we could see how the games looked side by side.  We were more interested in the gameplay and what the versions had in common more than the differences.

One of the great platform games on the Amiga.  I tried looking for this in your playlists but couldn't find the Amiga Longplays section.  Found an AMiga 500 Longplay section but this wasn't in it.  Is there a separate section?

Hi there, I enjoy your channel very much and have a couple of your playlists saved to my own, namely the Amiga 500 Longplays and the ZX Spectrum Longplays. However I've noticed a few of your Amiga Longplays are listed under the heading "Amiga Longplays" and yet I cannot find this on your list of playlists. Have I missed something as I would dearly love to add that list of videos to my playlist.

Just re-watching the feature on Ramwrite and you mention the word count.  Word count is usually based on words of 5 characters, so if you are consistently writing words of less than 5 then you will see more words than the limit and if you consistently use words larger than 5 characters then there will be less words.

A friend of mine had Astro Wars and another had Firefox F-7.  Both were enjoyable enough wee games.  I got Super Cobra from Gakken, I think at the time it was probably the more affordable option for a working class family and a large family at that.  I have to say though that whatever the reason I think I had the last laugh because I really enjoyed it and would personally rate it above all the others.  Even seeing the odd video of it on Youtube I go back to a young teenager when I hear that opening theme on it.

Caught this video last night and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Just to give context I got a ZX Spectrum 48K for Xmas back in 1984 and I had that computer up until I bought my Amiga in 1990.

I do wonder though how the scoring would have went if the games being considered included the following - Buggy Boy, Ghosts & Goblins, Spy Hunter, IK+, Pac-Mania, Commando?  Speccy lover as I am (I have a Speccy emulator on my PC) I would not be able in good conscience to give top marks to the Speccy for any of those games.

+Dean Swain Okay I agree that Spy Hunter on the Speccy plays brilliantly.  Its the version I know and played (only version I've played truth be told).

I would say Gif rather than Jif for 2 reasons.  Firstly because the G in GIF stands for graphic as you point out.  Also Jif is a product name for a kitchen and bathroom cleaner and I can't bring myself to call a picture file after a cleaning product.

Mickey Rourke is very good in this movie but he has the showy part.  De Niro I think steals all the scenes he is in by not trying to be showy but by portraying subtle menace under his genial nature.  rather than an OTT performance ala Nicholson in Witches of Eastwick or pacino in Devil's Advocate, De Niro in stead plays everything down, calmly dealing with him.  In their 3rd metting in the church he even shows genuine sympathy for the original Harry Angel but their 4th and final meeting is one where he shows his true menace but again, underplays it to superb effect.

Rourke had the showy part, De Niro te quieter part and I think as good as Rourke is, and he is very good, De Niro gives a masterclass in less is more.
