  1. These are wonderful and remind me of what I would argue was a golden age of gaming. I was in my teens and nothing better than having a mate over for some co op Sensi (after touch on the ball was cutting edge). Loved Dizzy (rock hard if I recall) and Lemmmings and very embarrassingly I remember self – styling myself as the Lemmings Level Doctor and providing assistance to my class mates on some of the harder levels. I flush with embarrassment now but also don’t care as loved it. Well done Royal Mail. May even pick myself up a set for nostalgia.
