Once again I've knocked up another screenshot quiz. This time 30 screenshots for the fantastic Commodore Amiga 500. In my opinion the best retro microcomputer in the world. They're not all great or classic games by any means because then most Amiga fans would breeze through the quiz in minutes. But I have played them all so none of them are ridiculously rare.

Just for a bit of fun I've knocked up a quick ZX Spectrum Screenshot Quiz. There are 30 screenshots in all, not from classic games by any means, but I did play them all back in the eighties so although it's not horrendously difficult it's not easy peasy either.
Any Speccy nut worth their salt should breeze through this anyway. So let's see how you do. Either give your answers in the comments here or on the Retro Rekall Page or the Retro Rekall Group or even on my personal Facebook page. Don't worry, if you need to send me a friend request I'll accept.

Nowadays hundreds of PC games are released every year but it wasn't always the case. I remember back in the early nineties when my Dell 486 with Windows 3.1 and a massive 40Mb hard drive was not looked upon as a gaming machine. It didn't have a large catalog of quality games available for it.
However, once developers learnt how to utilise the ever evolving power of PC's it wasn't long before more games were released, some of which are now quite rightly regarded as classics which spawned completely new genres.
I still have a PC and I still play games on it now. The quality of the graphics and sound and also the sheer size of the games may have increased but the way the games play has not radically changed. So I decided to look back and compile a list of my Top 25 Pre-Millenium PC games. Enjoy the nostalgia.
