Episode 36: The Age of Aquarius

16Dec

It's the age of Aquarius! Episode 36 flies into town with the team chatting to Sean Harrington about the Mattel Aquarius, that curious little Z80-based computer from the house of Barbie. We talk creating new mods for the computer, a bit about it, as well as take a look into Sean's history with the system, Star Wars & more!

This episode's news:

Some of the games mentioned:

  • Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
  • Choplifter (on many, many platforms)
  • Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (Aquarius)
  • Utopia (Aquarius)
  • Astrosmash (Aquarius, but also Tony's "Let's make a retro game" series on YouTube)

The two Aquarius Emulators referred to are "Virtual Aquarius" and "AqEmu", both of which can be found here - https://www.zophar.net/aquarius.html
