Are we including PoP and RoF in the 2021 games? I guess both aren't quite ready yet and deserve a round of their own when they are

I hope Tank Commander gets a look in, but not looking likely. Highly playable on the emulator with the speed ramped up to 198%.

 

Just noticed you can turn the turret independently whilst holding the fire key.

 

Nice game.

Hm, are there games where you are likely to score better if you overclock the computer? I mean for those of us who play on real hardware, we can't really turn up the clock frequency to 3.6 MHz in order for the game to run more smoothly.

If you go for Return of the Fungi, make sure to download the updated release from RetroUnite -- zip file: "DD3-Bundle-210922.zip", binary: "ReturnOfTheFungi_ii.xex". This updated version fixes the "load" issues that some folks were experiencing, and also fixes a PAL/Graphics bug.

Hi Simon, thanks for posting :thumbsup: I've loved playing your games over the years, thank you. I've reviewed Smash Hits I, II and III in the last two issues of Pro(c) Atari Magazine :!:
