At the big VGJunk site today: hovercrafts! Yes, hovercrafts, specifically one with a big gun on it that blows up bad guys, in Taito’s 1990 arcade shooter Aqua Jack! I should point out that’s apparently the actual arcade flyer and not something I knocked out with some felt tips. Anyway, there are a lot of walls, a familiar villain, I go off on a tangent about M.A.S.K., and you can read all about it here!

Odd question for you, but... as a British gamer from the 80's, what are your thoughts on DOS? It'd be rad to see you try one of the better Apogee platformers on your site.

Apart from a handful of games, I was never a DOS gamer - not out of any disdain for the platform, it’s just I preferred the SNES and for quite a long time my PC couldn’t run much and only had a black and white monitor. I played Day of the Tentacle in monochrome, I remember that, and I can tell you it’s not the ideal what to experience the game. Still, there are some DOS games that would fit nicely in the Halloween season (coming soOoOon!) so I might get into DOS for that.
