    Ah, childhood. How sweet you made it, Bitmap Brothers! I'll probably not support the book sadly, but I'll be very glad to know it exists! And I'll go play some Xenon 2 and Gods!

    Game naming reached it's peak with the Bitmap Brothers.

    • Xenon 2: Megablast
    • Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe
    • The Chaos Engine

    Ah, good days, good days.

    Hi @Armelline I'm obviously older than you then, by a good few years - but The Bitmap Brothers' games still made it sweet too for me in the 80's !

    Before their time and of their time, defining so much, didn't they....

    Good days indeed! I'm gonna stretch my limited budget and will be buying a book - the offer was just too tempting not to.... :smile:

    The 80s were a truly glorious time to grow up! I genuinely think, nostalgia aside, that there was no better time. Maybe the early 90s, but I'd not trade!

    I guess it's hard to comprehend now - but this opening music sample and gfx completely blew my mind back in 1989! Great memories!:

    @Armelline : :smile:

    @Digichain cheers, that took me right back! The graphics still hold up don't they - and we had more patience in those days with the credits before the game started.... :wink:
