We used a portable cassette deck for the Nascom and the Video Genie and as it happens I uncovered some Kansas City game cassettes only a day or two ago together with a Level 9 version of Colossal Adventure (the original mainframe text adventure with a whole extra end section added). According to the cassette label it's 32K at 1200 baud!

The Enterprise initially required a cassette deck until a floppy disk interface became available and the Enterprise's EXOS rom was supplemented by IS-DOS, a CP/M and, to a large extent, MSDOS compatible system. It was a pity that Amstrad's CPC computers came onto the market at the same time, because they stole the slot at Curry's that Intelligent Software had been negotiating about for the Enterprise which had, arguably, by far the best software and expansion design -- it was designed with expansion in mind unlike the CPC, which was designed with Alan Sugar's bank balance in mind. Amstrad as good as killed one of the better computers of the '80s, like VHS killed Betamax, the better format.

My TI-99 had to be connected to a tape recorder with an interface cord. What the Fuck is an "interface"?

It is in Unity and is so slow and unresponsive that I gave up after only a few minutes. They seem to have some decent voice acting but when the mouse pointer lags so far behind my input that it is hard to hit hot spots, it is time to move on to something else.

Or maybe I just dislike Unity. Which is also true. :(


Not sure what that is - I've not had any problems like that with the version I found

If you're familiar with the original LSL games you'll know what to expect.. At the time the original was probably the most pirated game ever and a huge hit. Lots of silliness and "in" jokes referring to other genres.

If you're expecting whizzy graphics and a ton of sex, this probably isn't for you.
