A Competition that was too difficult
« on: 14:10, 13 November 20 »

I hope this okay to post here, CPC related (hint!)


In issue 1 of Retro Format, we ran a competition to name a game from a screenshot, but we made the error of making it too difficult, perhaps? We then made issue's 2 competition much easier. However, we still have the problem of 500 plus people not answering the first competition, and well, I thought, maybe CPC fans could work this one out  ;D


The first 10 people who email me at mailto:editorial@retro-format.com with the correct answer in naming the game below, will win a downloadable copy of The Outhouse from FUED Software, worth a massive $5 US Dollars!  :o

I'd have sent in when I got the magazine, but sadly no time to read 😥

But, everyone, that's an excellent prize so do participate!

Nice compo! But there's a feature by google which makes it super-easy to find the solution. It's even included in some browsers .. just sayin ;-)
