Episode 98 – The History of Mastertronic


Welcome to episode 98 of the UK’s No.1 Retro Gaming Podcast.

In this episode, Sam (mrsid), Steve (press play on tape) and Paul (the drisk) chat through the history of budget game kings, Mastertronic.

In this third in the series or our company history podcasts, we chat about key games, milestones in the companies history and have some amazing listener contributions.

If that wasn’t enough, we have even produced a History of Mastertronic PDF for you to download which includes loads more detail. Huge thanks to Paul for putting this together. Enjoy!
