In 1979, Atari launched two computers that were to truly change computing history. The Atari 400, and its bigger brother the 800, came with features that other computer manufacturers could only dream about. We take an in-depth look at Atari's remarkable 8-bit computer range

Back in the mid-1980s, Level 9 Computing dominated the UK adventure game scene with epic titles like Dungeon Adventure, Snowball and The Price of Magik. The first part of our extensive history traces Level 9's formative years, from 1981 to 1986

Over 20 years after the release of the original Manic Miner, there are now well over 60 Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy clones for the Spectrum alone, all created by enthusiastic hackers. We take a look at how the Miner Willy revival came about

Revolution is the UK developer behind this issue's classic covermounted game, Beneath a Steel Sky, and the forever popular Broken Sword series. We speak to founding member Tony Warriner about Revolution's past, present and future

In the first of a two-part feature, we look at a couple of classic Sega arcade games and see how the home conversions fared. We begin with two AM2-developed arcades - Hang On and Space Harrier...
