    Indeed. Top-down non-scrolling BMX simulator, buggy race, lawnmower simulator - all ripping each other off and all still a snip at £1.99.

    Memory a bit vague regarding US Gold, maybe swayed by the better releases when I switched to the C64... almost like going from Spurs to Arsenal in computer terms. Leaderboard, Beach Head 1 and 2 (with speech!), Summer Games 1 and 2 via Epyx who also did Winter Games, World Games and Pitstop 2. And also Mission Impossible also with speech... "Another visitor. Stay a while... stay forever! Mwaahhaahha"!!

    Brian Lara cricket was excellent on PlayStation, didn't realise it was a codemasters release.

    Does put it all into perspective really. It's only a game and we will all be pieces of dust one day.

    RIP Boycie

    I worked for Codemasters one summer in the early 90s.
    The two brothers who set it up went to my school in Southam.
    I had to test new games they were developing, to try and break them e.g. at the start of Micro Machines, rather than racing forwards, go directly backwards in reverse and crash the game.
    I had to play Micro Machines all day for weeks on end, tricky life!
    They wanted me to test Brian Lara Cricket but I don't like cricket so I wasn't keen.
    There was some awful crashy smashy demolition derby game on a figure of 8 track as well but that was awful, way off being released.

    He was in Cabaret Voltaire apparently; an industrial electronic band off of the 70s.

    Some of that does read like a preparatory piece.
    I know this might not go down well with some, but i have a lot of time and respect for the old jelly bean.
    Should bin it off once she has gone though.
