Welcome!


Pixel8Games.com contains a collection of retrospective reviews and comparisons of 8-bit games for the Amstrad CPC, BBC Micro, Commodore 64, and ZX Spectrum.

My reviews are often as reflective about the time as they are about the game, so expect some waffle! I've also selected a hand-picked song clip coming from the same year as the review to get you into that retro feeling.

Enjoy!
