Episode 132: 8 Bit Wars Part 2


After lengthy discussion, lawyers and C15 cassettes changing hands the second installment of 8 Bit Wars is finally upon us. Join Paul Davies as he looks to wrangle Dean Swain, Steve Erickson and Chris O’Regan into agreeing whether the Commodore 64, Amstrad or ZX Spectrum came out top from a specially-selected list of 10 classic retro games.

Expect plenty of heated discussion and laughter along the way as we decide which 8 Bit system comes out on top this time round.

Including: Cobra, Jack the Nipper 2, The Trap Door, Turbo Esprit, Wizball, Nebulus, Spy Hunter, Shadowfire, Green Beret and Salamander.

Also, be sure to check out Chris O’Regan’s podcast The Sausage Factory which is a current gen gaming show that lifts the lid on video game making through interviews with the creators of the titles we all love to play – find it here.
