8th July 2023 1 hr 1 min

Sega and Nintendo are taking Mario and Sonic back to their 2D roots, how do we feel about that? Do kids of today get what the likes of the ZX, CPC and C64 are? Is it possible to bring classic adventure/puzzler Myst to the Atari 2600?

All this and more plus the Community Question Of The Week.

We are sponsored by Pixel Addict magazine and our little promos are regarded as some of the best on YouTube........but how do the people behind the mag itself do when they get the chance to promote it? See for yourself this week. Visit for details on issue 13!
