It was the early 1990s, and Nintendo and Sega were going head to head in a 16-bit battle of the mascots, but what about the world of home computers? What about the Commodore Amiga? Meet Zool: the Amiga’s platforming ninja gremlin with a penchant for Chupa Chups lollipops and, evidently, British rave music…

Episode 42 – Rallying Ragers

Rallying is a motorsport that has always fascinated me, which I think is largely down to titles such as V-Rally and Colin McRae Rally, a pair of first-rate driving sims from the fifth generation of video games. It turns out that rallying games often have some excellent, inventive music, so lock in and enjoy these rocking and raving gems from the 1990s!
