I brought the SNES mini about 18 months ago, and 25 years on from the original, I’m still unable to complete Super Mario World

I still play William's Defender from the 80s on a small handheld emulator.
I don't think to this date there is a faster more adrenaline pumped space shooter game.

I can only dream to be as quick as this dude

I could watch that for hours. I used to have the Acornsoft Planetoid version for the BBC 32k back in the 80s and got pretty good at it. Same tactics, reduce mutants by destroying all humans bar one or two and then carry them to avoid going into space. Reverse thrust to get as many aliens on screen, smart bomb, boom, pick off the clusters for an extra life. I was usually unlucky with hyperspace respawns though, often spawning on an alien

Great stuff.

This is my setup in my front room. Xbox one X. Original NES with everdrive cartridge which is a tradition NES cartridge which has an SD card slot and it holds every game on an SD card. It has instant loading and saving. Original SNES also with an everdrive cartridge. Nintendo Wii and a 16K ZX Spectrum with SD card reader which also allows instant loading. I do have cassette player and a collection of games on tape but for convenience the SD card reader is perfect.

I always dreamed of being Fred Savage in the 1989 film The Wizard.
I was 9 at the time but he was like a super hero.lol

Yeah - tried one of those...Everything was out of sync

Will have another go in a couple of weeks, I won't be beaten by it - it is probably user error that needs a touch more concentration than I was (drunkenly) giving it last time!

I have no scart sockets on mine so this is the only way I can do it. They need to be pushed in very tight otherwise they might not work properly. I have to put my tv in game mode otherwise the lag is very bad. Using that input I can use ZX Spectrum, NES, SNES and the Wii without any issues. Keep trying mate, it’s worth it! There are solutions out to get these old consoles connected by HDMI but they can be very expensive, to use the NES as an example the cost of getting the work done is more than the cost of a decent NES console in excellent condition but thee are plug and play type HDMI cables for the N64 that are cheaper. Good luck.
