Here's my personal Top 10 Intro Tunes from 8 and 16 bit home computers of late 80s and early 90s:

Awesome. I remember some of the intro scene people had great tunes. However they were hard to find. Thank you for another one. I always love hearing about the Commodore line. Even the other games inspire me to keep persevering like my grandfather says to make the perfect game#!!

My father always tells me to study. I just hate to do someone else's routines. So I am the rebel who finds my path in life through my own experiences. Life is a lesson you cannot learn from a textbook is what I have learned!

Anyways, my mother would want me to keep it short so I will just end with my brother tells me you have to start somewhere even if it is at the very lowest point.

I loved this episode, thanks a lot!!! ^_^

I am almost completely unfamiliar with the home computer systems featured, and have never heard about most of the games you showcased (except for Turrican II and Stormlord II). All of the games are really amazing I should say, and the music is great :D I especially liked the Fuzzball theme. Thanks!

A while ago I read the Doom review at the Super Adventures in Gaming blog, and there I learned about the unofficial ZX Spectrum port of Doom. It has a very cool tune in my opinion (YouTube link).

Also at Super Adventures in Gaming I read about another Amiga game, Uridium 2 which also has some pretty awesome music (YouTube link).

I read the Doom review and that was lengthful haha

It is cool. It gave me something to do.

However after that single review, I need a break from reading anymore. hehe

Thank you for the review though - some funny remarks in there like "It turns out that I needed to shoot the target to achieve my goal. How could I miss that obvious common sense means to achieve my goal deal. haha" Something along that line anyways.

So thanks again for another cool bunch of reviews and such; you are also helpful too. I love getting feedbacks on my games, DEMOs and such. In case out of curiousity sake, I notice DOSgames website host a bunch of advertisements for Sierra games and such. I was wondering if you get a kickback of some sorts? Sorry to pry if I am. As Quadko likes to say "No worries! hehe" I am just being nosy. You know people who are your friends are more likely to purchase from you. I guess that is the same deal with my DEMOs and such. If you have friends, people would rather download from you even if the games are humble and just starting out.

I'm glad you liked the review! I enjoy reading this blog not only for learning about games which were unfamiliar to me, but also for humorous and sometimes sarcastic remarks the author makes :) One of regular guest authors (who specializes in FPS games) also writes in a very humorous style, which is fun to read.

I watched most of it however as I started to lay down I missed like 10%; luckily it is mostly the same. I enjoy the hard work you put into racing for that long.

Who would have ever imagine that the ZX Spectrum would ever have a Castlevania game in its library! Finally, in 2015, that dream became reality:

Thanks to this game, I know how to code something!

I've been wondering how to code an object behind another object. I just had an inspiration that shows me the way by watching this video game. Thank you again!
