Is Phoenix a great game despite the strange bugs? Or is Phoenix a great game because of the strange bugs? We honestly haven't a clue, but you can decide for yourself by listening to the latest fun-filled badsongtastic episode of the Ten Pence Arcade Podcast. Available at http://tenpencearcade.co.uk/ ,iTunes, and the Electrical Department at John Lewis.

I must confess the local John Lewis electrical department didn't work out too well for me...


Scene: Day.
Interior of John Lewis store.
Electrical dept.
(Probably best read in a Victorian gentleman's accent).

Me: (to sales assistant) Good day Sir, could you kindly direct me to the 10P Arcade Podcast section?

Sales Assistant: Erm, sorry Sir. What?

Me: The 10p Arcade Podcast Section. Are you a buffoon?

Sales Assistant: (nervous laugh) Podcast section? We don't have one of those, sorry.

Me: What? Ridiculous! You are familiar with the term 'podcast' are you not?

Sales Assistant: Well, er, yes but...

Me: But nothing! Then why are you not stocking this fine periodical?

Sales Assistant: (anxiously looking for supervisor) I really don't know, er, can I get my superv....

Me: You most certainly cannot! You have wasted enough of my time already. I shall take my custom elsewhere! Good day, Sir.

Sales Assistant: Can I interest you in...

Me: (loudly) I said, GOOD DAY SIR!!!

Yes I had the same problem downloading on the Podbean podcast client app ended up downloading directly from the site instead.

Great episode boys. Gutted I missed out on Phoenix as it's one of my all time favourites. :(
That said, have always been pretty pants at it, but I think that's because I had no idea about the bonuses and just killed everything as quick as possible!



As always, great to get some tips as this is one I'll keep playing (just with a better score).
Commando is similar in that I love it, but am pretty crap at it. Looking forward to giving it some hammer. I think one of my best scores was at Arcade Club last time I was there, but it was still average at best. Looking to crack 100k or snap the joystick in the process as I seem to really slam it when changing direction quickly.
Keep up the good work.


EDIT: After a first session, I've clearly overestimated my abilities by a considerable amount. 100k is a pipe dream.

EDIT 2: It seems dreams can come true!

listened to the phoenix podcast yesterday whilst laying slabs in the baking hot sun Unhappy
great podcast as always 
and nice to hear the biscuit themed ten pence orchestra back Thumbs Up

 your mini review of skycurser  has sparked my interest in the game again i was not that impressed by it on first glance at revival but only got to play two credits and knew nothing of the game mechanics 

can we have mushimesama or armed police batrider as a future game choice please

I listened to this a while back and can't remember much (getting old now), but some highlights were;

Victorian Insults - I love how Shaun starts to lose the accent half way through..

The return of the Mighty 10pence Orchestra - what a tune, what editing, the overlaying of the vocal tracks, the rhyming stanzas, oh my what an aural treat.

Shaun's Tech Tips were, somewhat surprisingly, actually useful and at no point did he tell me to lick the anode cap - amazing.

Onto this weeks game - Commando, a game that for me epitomises the 80's, with a chance to become John Rambo and kick some jungle butt! Unfortunately I am pants at it and keep running into bullets and trees.

PS: Great time at Play Glasgow with Mr Holley who let me rub his shiny head in exchange for some biscuits!!

Meep, Meep !!!

Thanks for the shout out chaps, and thanks for getting me through a 27 hour work marathon last Sunday by listening to random episodes from the back catalogue. Shaun's Hey Flicky song and Vic's Ode to Scramble were my favorites of many highlights that saved me from eating my hands in boredom. Top work fellas!

Another great podcast guys ...
could kick myself that I missed the mahoosive bonus you could get by letting the saucer thing get to the bottom- that was obviously my downfall and not due to lack of skill in anyway of course !

Common Biscuits - destined to be an absolute comedy classic - appreciate the time and effort put into this ! No really honest!
