I enjoyed Andy Kelly’s report on Dovetail Games. I find it a relaxing break from shooters. The reference to Deadstick took me back to the ’80s when subLogic was publishing Flight Simulator. I had that on my Atari 800, but enjoyed Sid Meier’s SoloFlight better. You had to balance the weight of your avgas vs the amount of mail you were hauling vs the distance you had to fly. Pretty slick for 48K!
PS, You should let Xalavier Nelson Jr. know about the raindrop effects in Richard Burns Rally. I often ran off the road because I was blown away by the realism of the rain hitting the windscreen. Jim Phil: Xalavier is terrifyingly young, so is probably unaware of RichardBurns Rally. We’ll be sure to give him the history lesson he desperately needs.
