Am I the only one who likes it? and EDGE? but your right about ACE, that mag was cool beans back in the day!

I remember they ran a kinda competition where you could write in and the best begging letter meant you got to hang out at a developers for a whole day, take part in meetings, watch them making a game and get some free shit... the one I won a place on was hmmmmm, a little known company called Gremlin Graphics??? I was chuffed to bits but it being on a school day and what with the strict folks... no go, was GUTTED!

Just think, might have been a day with Lotus 2!

Never played the C64 version but the miggy version is awful. Playability = 0.

I never saw what was meant to be so good about Super Mario Bros. Giana Sisters wipes the floor with it.

>"no delightful inertia"

What nonsense, of course there is inertia. Obviously these fools have never even played the damn thing. Probably they are upset that the publishers have not booked any advertising space in their worthless magazine.

Marvin's Marvellous Adventure is also a bit of a Mario copycat - What do others think of this game?

All I know is that Super Mario Bros is a superb game.
