Dark Seed: In the cemetery, one of the tombstones reads "G. Threepwood, R.I.P." This is a reference to the character Guybrush Threepwood, the main protagonist of the Monkey Island series.guybrush_rip.jpg

Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire In the Introduction, the USS Enterprise-D (from Star Trek: The Next Generation) appears briefly and quickly warps away. The USS Enterprise-D appears again inside Keaton Laffin's Magic Shop, jokingly called the "USS Exitprize."magic_shop_enterprise.JPGQfGII_TbF_Enterprise.JPG

A low cost sub-A500 system planned to complement the machine, not to replace it. The Amiga 300 board was launched as the Amiga 600. Also known as 'June Bug.' The A300 name was present on the A600 revision 1 motherboard.

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis


The French street signs in Monte Carlo reference other LucasArts properties. "Boulevard des Guerres des Etoiles" translates to "Star Wars Boulevard" and "Avenue des Trois Bois" translates to "Three Wood Avenue", likely a reference to Guybrush Threepwood, the main character of the Monkey Island series.indi_street_signs.png

Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders

Entering the travel key code incorrectly 5 times, will result in the player's character being sent to a "Pirate Jail", where they'll be given a speech about buying the game. It is impossible to progress in the game without these codes, which are included with a legitimate copy of the game.

Jet Set Willy

Like most ZX Spectrum games, Jet Set Willy was stored on a cassette tape. Simply making an audio copy of the cassette allowed people to easily copy Spectrum games. Jet Set Willy was one of the first to come with a form of copy protection: a card with 180 coloured codes on it was bundled with the cassette. Upon loading, one of the codes from the card had to be entered before the game would start. Although the cassette could be duplicated, a copy of the card was also needed and at the time, home colour reproduction was hard to do. Thus copying Jet Set Willy was trickier than most Spectrum games. However, means of circumventing the card were quickly found, and, reflecting the attitude to software piracy at the time, one method was published in a UK computer magazine.jet_set_willy_copy_protection.gif

Αν μιλάμε για μήκος... :lol:

Το Space Panic από την Universal, ήταν ένα arcade παιχνίδι που κυκλοφόρησε το 1980. Κατέχει τον τίτλο του μακρύτερου pcb που κατασκευάστηκε ποτέ και αυτό οφείλεται στην παλαιότητα του μηχανικού διάδρομου κύλισης και συγκόλλησης εξαρτημάτων που χρησιμοποιούσε η Universal εκείνη την περίοδο.

Βλέπουμε την αρχική έκδοση της διάσημης πλακέτας. Οι φωτογραφίες είναι από αγοραπωλησίες του εξωτερικού.
