Was that for multi load games? Pretty harsh if it took two sides of the tape to load in a single loader. :(

Yeah I think it was a multiload...side/part 2 never loaded so I gave up after a few attempts.

Also..my Zzap DVD arrived today so a massive thank you to whoever sent that so quickly! Think I'll be happy as a pig in a poke tonight looking through that!

Several US Gold games were like that, around the time of Roadrunner and Deceptor.

The day when I opened the mag to discover a total change to a more kiddie-fied style of caricatures and type fonts. That hurt.
