Re: game history quiz.

For anyone interested in games of yore, in particular the speccy, i have one of my sites at www.retrozone.co.uk where there is a large choice of great (and not so Great) spectrum games.
Not as good as world of spectrum site, just my nod to my hobby at the time.
yes i know some links on front page dont work, needs updating and havent had the time for the last year or so Smiley
