The Adventure Game

Gronda, Gronda! Come say hello to Uncle, the vibrating aspidistra! The Adventure Game was a gameshow set on a distant planet, called Arg, in which celebrities had to solve puzzles in order to get back home. They also had to speak to a teapot, (or an aspidistra, depending on what Uncle had transformed in to […]

We Have A Podcast!

To celebrate our 20th birthday, 80sNostalgia is launching a podcast! Yes – 80sNos will have been online for 20 years as of June 2019, so we thought we would celebrate by talking at you relentlessly. This is the main reason we have been quiet over the last few months. We started production in October last […]

Demon Driver

Demon Driver was a revolutionary game in two ways. Firstly, the road on which your car would drive was an endless inner workings used to revolve. See what I did there? Revolve? “Revolution”-ary? No? *sigh* Secondly, and more importantly, it gave you the feeling of being a “proper” driver. There was a steering wheel that […]

Jamie And The Magic Torch

Here’s one even my mum remembers. And who could forget it? For years I search for Jamie and the Magic Torch on video, and then along came the Gods know as Pearson TV, who released it on video. Bless their cotton socks! To be honest, I couldn’t remember much about this program other than Jamie […]

8-Bit On A Budget

The good computer games in the 80s, for the original 8-bit machines, were usually around a tenner. It took me about a month to save up enough money to buy Frank Bruno’s Boxing, but I played it for hours. I know Mastertronic had released a few games early on for £1.99, which was great. It […]

Tiswas

What on Earth is going on with Saturday morning TV these days. God, that made me feel old! Anyway, back to my rant, what exactly is going on here? We have a bunch of wannabe stars (who in my opinion are more camp than a tent in a field) trying to entertain the kids of […]

Comic Con Scotland – For The Love of 80s

“Whoa!” That was genuinely what I said when I saw the line-up of guests at Comic Con Scotland. I go to quite a few Comic Cons every year and the main draw for me are the guests. I do love buying geeky things from the stalls, and I do go to talks to listen to […]
