It's a Pixel THING - Retrogaming Youtube Channel
« on: August 20, 2014, 07:14:45 am »
Hi, guys! I'm from Portugal, and I love retrogaming!

I grew up with the evolution of the arcades and home computers, back in mid 80s (europe), and this passion of mine began with my beloved Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128k +2A.
I've recently started my own YouTube channel "It's a Pixel THING" where I do weekly videos about retrogaming and video gaming industry analysis!

Check it out, if you have the time: https://www.youtube.com/user/ThePixelTHING

Thank you very much!  ;)

I used to own alien 3 for the Mega Drive, not the SNES. Will take a look when I get home.

Back in the day I used to play a lot the Amiga version, similar to the Genesis/MegaDrive, but the time limit was just a bit annoying and stressful..  :(

Thanks for the infernal machine flashback--it was fun to revisit that old gem--and you're right, it was a great game for its time!

I'll have to blow the dust off my copy of the emperor's tomb game now..
its better to not post and be thought a fool, then to whip out your keyboard and remove all doubt...

Hi, Generic Eric! My "safe zone" is Commodore Amiga, ZX Spectrum and PC games. Back in the 80s, only the more profitable arcade titles reached Portugal.
I could give it a try in the next challenge!  ;)

Many of you will remember the name Raffaele Cecco. He programmed amazing titles for the greatest 8-bit machines of the 80s.
When he finally embraced the 16-bit era, he did this:

From the creative mind of Simon Phipps, the designer of Rick Dangerous, came, in 1992, WolfChild, a frenetic action platformer with super detailed graphics and pretty cool music from Martin Iveson, creator of the original Tomb Raider musical score:
