    I still can’t make my mind up if the main game music from Parasol Stars is Pack Up Your Troubles (In Your Old Kitbag)or the intro bit of It’s A Small Small World (It’s A Small World Afterall) or a weird combination of both songs.

    The Boss music is definitely a real track as well.

    It was a true underdog indeed. It had no chance against the PC and AMIGA 16-Bit versions “they did have 32-Bit versions too but it’s not fair to compare them models to an ST which was only 16-Bit as I think even the STE modal may have been 16-Bit also so just not a fair comparison Vs A1200 and Windows 95 32-Bits.” but it held it’s own to them 16-Bit A500+ and DOS 16-Bit PC’s at the same time. The poor scrolling let it down a bit for sure though so it was the AMSTRAD of the 16-Bit era and could if worked around right produce good versions of games but couldn’t beat the other 16-Bit hardwares in general though.

    I too owned the ST and it also has a special place in my gaming history. Really great to hear it getting some well deserved airtime on the podcast. It really was an underdog but is a great machine.

    Really enjoyed this Paul and you genuinely had me laughing out loud whist walking to work. Fantastic stuff mate
