Podcast 33 : Marchen Maze

Victor has been to see the biggest personal arcade collection in the country, Shaun has been playing Space Harrier on a mahoosive screen and we’ve both given the bizarre lickle game Marchen Maze a wee bit of love, but plopped off the edge a lot.  In the game too.

Podcast 32 : Vulgus

10p vulgus and dodgem

Vulgus Vulgaris – A common shooter or classic gem?  WE DECIDE!
Some trigger fingers galore here, while still enjoying a simple shooter. Some may even say pure (we say that) Shaun plays on mame, Victor plays a pcb with wonky roms…
Victor even managed to ‘dodge’ Dodgem, while Shaun gets a good score against the motherzaccers!

Podcast 31 : Wonder Boy

10p wonder boy

Wunderbar! Sorry, no – Wonderboy.  A yellow haired little fella with legs that do 90 to the dozen!  Lob axes at snails, jump over indigenous blue people!
…Fall off clouds and into the sea…

Podcast 30 : Dig Dug

10p dig dug

Oh yes! – An all time favourite of Victor’s. We play little smurf like fellas, happily exploding sub terranean tomatoes and cretinous dragons with our wiggly pumps!
A certain cab that hasn’t had a monitor for ages has suddenly got a nice new one (just in time!)

Podcast 29 : Block Hole aka Quarth

 

10p block hole
We have taken this oppurtunity to blast blocks at other blocks in space.
It would have been rude not to.  It’s a listener pick this time and it’s a kinda upside down o vision Tetris thingy.  That’s a technical explaination.
Death Race looks like it actually works! :) and stuff is coming on.

Victor has a mystery parcel from Kentucky to open on air!

10p eyes smaller
Oh, here we are again!
A new year and new games to play from the arcade.  Er, no maybe not.  New games from 20 and 30 years ago!  I’ll take that!
We have been giving ‘Eyes’ the eye this week as well as surviving another Christmas / holiday period.
You may have noticed that we look like a nerdy / mean version of Miami Vice in our advertising picture (above)
