That is curious, thanks for bringing this up!

No idea why the colour difference, maybe simply run out of purples! :D

I recently bought a book introducing CD-i published way back in 1989. The consumer market actually illustrated was a middle class 40 something on a dull afternoon with nothing better to do but play a golf or maybe baseball game via the invention of interactive TV! In retrospect it is quite comical b...

If my French were better and I could get as far as the game levels then yes! :D

Actually I'm probing around this story, more when I get it.

Looking forward to it Charles!

Your 3DO work looks impressive to say the least. Does the tool kit open up free development on any 3DO player with only the use of a windows PC?

No, not to my knowledge.

From what I can gather Chris started publishing the reviews on news net groups then built his own CD-i website later on. Dead pleased he let me use his reviews on Black Moon! :D

Most of the guides on-line can be followed regardless of player type. You simply need to identify the timekeeper battery and apply the same technique! Just make sure you DO NOT get the positive and negative connection mixed up otherwise you'll end up with a dead player!

Thanks all go to Chris Adamson.

Can not praise up his reviews enough, even if I disagree with some of them! Especially the Mutant Rampage review which is a game I love for being so bizare yet not to Chris's liking! :wink:

Chris Adamson Review - The Apprentice

Really loved his reviews which were sadly lost hidden away on GameFAQ.

Bas revived a few on Interactive Dreams. I fancied a stab at making them pretty as well, so with permission from Chris here is the first The Apprentice review! :D

No, those games I believe were produced 'at the same time' as the other versions. When I say conversion I mean an already successful game given the CD-i overhaul because Philips present a big bag of money scenario! :wink:

Third-Party Conversions

Just realised, out of all the conversions to CD-i only two studios of the original IP converted it to the format!

Argonaut with Creature Shock and Codemasters with Micro Machines. Strikes me as odd is all :shock:
