And that's the sad thing. Far too many people are used to not paying for stuff they play, so even (roughly) £1.50 for one of the Spectrum's best platformers is too expensive. Stupid really, but that's what emulation has done.
You're missing the point Darran. Better games are available at 80MSP, which support independent developers who are producing now. It may only be £1.50, but its still expensive when measured against other titles out there. People don't generally buy on sentiment alone.
And almost everyone on here will have played this title on one system or another....
So, yes, £1.50 for a newspaper I've already read IS too much.
