    Mr. Do! brings back great memories, an integral part of my childhood playing it in arcades. The feeling when you uncovered a diamond...

    I spent far to much time and money playing on the Outrun machine in Sunderland Computer Centre circa 1986, happy days :cool:

    Moved to Weymouth and worked the summer, winter left me at a bit of a loose end so ended up in a bedsit with nothing else to do but play Mr Do and Phoenix in the local arcade at 10p a pop. Luckily things improved after that grim winter!

    I only recently found out that if you have a PS3 you can download Black Tiger for free. It seems a lot harder than I remember. Can’t believe I completed the coin op version without hundreds of continues.

    I just downloaded Double Dragon, the whole game was 138kb! This webpage is probably more than that. :lol: The kids nowadays don't know what they're missing out on man.

  19. First ever played on was Pacman when i was around 7yo in 1980/81, last arcade game i was well into in my early 20's was Sega Rally Championship. Favourite was either Double Dragon or Outrun as I could complete them.
