Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict focuses on the home computer that defined my teenage years – the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Originally known as the ZX-82, it was named the ‘Spectrum’ so to show how it’s full of colour compared to its black-and-white predecessor, the ZX81. Add-ons came in the form of joystick connectors, and the […]

Gunman Taco Truck on PC – The DVDfever Review

Gunman Taco Truck is a superb retro-styled and very colourful game which is great fun to play, part of which involves tearing bullets into roadkill, plus rednecks roaming the freeway. With each Operation Wolf-style attempt, I was improving my aim and my end-of-level scores. Dom Robinson Reviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic […]

Daikatana on PC CD-ROM – The DVDfever Review

Daikatana: It’s been four years in the making and comes from John Romero, the man responsible for the likes of Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Quake, Heretic and Hexen, so it can’t fail to impress. Right? Wrong! I had such high hopes for this too, since I loved most of the above (could never get into Heretic […]
