New GX4000 review and longplay – “No Exit”

It’s time to tackle the worst game on the system! No Exit receives the review and longplay treatment, also I’ve completed the full review on the Gamebase part of this website HERE if you fancy reading up more on it! This is the only 1 vs 1 beat ‘em up on the console, and frankly it’s an embarrassment.

“Mystical” rare cart finally appears on eBay!

After several years of absence on eBay and following on the heels of “Dick Tracy” recently – the even rarer “Mystical” arrives and goes for a high final price of £112.49!

It’s hard to remember, but unless I missed it this was the first time I’ve seen it on eBay in potentially 7 years. This would make it rarer than Dick Tracy, Copter271, and Panza Kick Boxing where each of them have appeared at least twice in the last few years! But back then Mystical had appeared at least a couple of times, but then for years – nothing! Strange and funny old world retro collecting is. Maybe we’ll see a couple more copies surface now that it reached a high price?

Buyer beware though, as far as I can recall it’s identical to the tape/disk release on the normal CPC! Whilst nice looking, it’s actually a fairly average vertically scrolling shooter.

Dick Tracy returns on eBay!

Well my last post here was a few months ago about the very same thing, but Dick Tracy emerged again on eBay and the seller was looking for a Buy It Now of £150 on two failed attempts. It later went down to £110 and was then snapped up, and I think we now know the ceiling price for this relatively rare game. I think it’s time I updated the rarity guide, for example I haven’t seen Mystical knocking around on eBay in many years now!
