Site Offers Team 17 Classics For Retro Treat

I owe a lot to Team 17. Afterall, Superfrog and Alien Breed got me into this whole journalism game. Founded in 1990, Team 17 is one of my favourite developers of the past few decades and was responsible for some absolutely corking titles. It was my addiction to them - fuelled by all night gaming sessions and copious quantities of Coca Cola - that saw me scribble down my gameplay tips and send them to Future Publishing's now defunct (obviously) Commodore Amiga magazine, Amiga Power. My witty writing style and indepth knowledge (!) of the aforementioned titles got me published and I was subsequently showered with free games.

Anyway, I digress. If, like me, you can't muster the enthusiasm to wander about your dimly-lit loft to try and track down these classic Team 17 discs for a nostalgic playthrough, then why not take a trip to GOG.com? The fantastic site - crammed full of DRM-free PC games - has just made some of Team 17's library available for download for only a few dollars.

Among them, Worms United – a special edition of the original Worms with the expansion Worms Reinforcements, Alien Breed and Alien Breed: Tower Assault, Superfrog and World Rally Fever: Born on the Road.

I'm suddenly craving Lucozade!!!
