Can't wait to hear all about those games Bas. I was very disappointed that Discworld never made release, despite a full review in cd-i magazine!

All the best,
Alan

I totally agree with Bas. Fantastic game, but extremely hard. It actually took me 11 years to complete it - look out for the cool laser power up in the later levels. This is awesome. Well worth persisting with. Another good old skool shooter is Tetsuo Gaiden. Only 2 power ups available though... Alan

Hi Trev, ''Electric Dreams'' is an exclusive videocd release. A great early 1980's film, when computers were just coming into their own!

Thanks very much Bas for your comment - really appreciate that! I want to say that I think it is thanks to your website too that the interest in cd-i is still there, and yours is a fantastic resource for all info relating to cd-i. Keep up the great work. As for when Blackmoon peaked, I would say in ...

It's one of my favourite games ever. The 2 player mode obviously allows you to play as Luigi, so it's the nearest on cd-i to ''Sonic & Tails''! I agree that simultaneous 2 player would have been fantastic. To my knowledge, the following are the only 2 player simultaneous games.. Frog Feast Solar Cru...

I'm sure that you could get 'Go' and 'Jack Sprite' on ebay.com recently, for around USD 25.00. Have a look... may still be available or check completed items for unsold copies. Both games are great.

Yes sorry to hear about the power supply.

But I have certainly seen sellers on e-bay selling just the power supply for cd-i 450 models. Have a good look on there and you may find one...

If you can find a Sony mouse (which came with the Sony portable) I found they are the best for cd-i. I didn't get on with the trackerball to be honest, nor the joystick. The later version remote works very very well :)

I've never come across those options!! Very funny! :lol:

Damian what is your best score on the game? Back in 1995 you could actually win a cash prize for the best score!! (I would have had NO chance!)

Trev

It's a puzzle/strategy game with cool graphics and music. Has 52 levels. You have to plan moves in advance or find yourself in an impossible situation. You'll also need to collect objects eg. a hose to put out fires.

Austin, I agree with you about Dimo's Quest. One of my all time favourite games. I think the music is outstanding. Yes, a gamepad controller does make all the difference. I did see one on ebay.uk for £44.99, but with ''best offer'' option. So you may be able to get the price down a bit. Best Wishes.
