The design and content of the book are absolutely first class. It’s the best way (outside of buying a machine!) to bring back all those memories from the early 80’s and marvel at how the people that created the games got so much out of the wonderful Acorn machines!
Very good communication
I can't tell about the item because I don't think to open it before a while. BUT… I am happy to say that communication and packaging are VERY good. An example for the profession.
Great info, well presented! Essential reference for Acorn 8 Bit gaming!
Splendid and highly original book!
It took a few days before the e-book was delivered, but then I received my personal (name imprinted) version in perfect order. Joy to read and just go through the pages. Brings back lots of memories of the good-old '80 and the fun I had with my Acorn computers and games!
I purchased the original book and the digital update. It just oozes class and is very well put together. I never had a BBC.. so this is weird that I like it so much. Friends had BBCs and Electrons.
