Personal Computer News

Once upon a time, when I was a child and my neighbour had an Acorn Electron, I played a game called Trainiac - a fast little number even though it was in Basic.

 

I remembered this game and went looking for it on the Internet. I finally found it, after some 5 years of searching, hiding away in the pages of Personal Computer News magazine. I then spent another 3 years collecting up every issue of this magazine - from many different sources! - just to see if there were any other great games within its pages.

 

Finally, a friend had me take all those magazines and create Personal Computer News, which he updates when he can (with a little help from me on the framework/coding side):

 

You'll find 100s of game reviews and screenshots on this site too, including reviews of Amstrad and Spectrum versions of Manic Miner:

The PC version was created by Andy Noble and, from being all over the Internet in the early Noughties, there's precious little trace of it to be found now.

 

I wrote a review of it for the EUG magazine back in the day, which can be found here:
