The Definitive Doom (DOS)

DOOM, id's brilliant sequel to Wolfenstein 3D and a game you are most probably aware of, defined the modern FPS and singlehandedly changed the games industry. Also, it's a PC game that's highly collectible and thus worth owning. Even more so in its 1993 original, mail order, complete in box version that includes the 5.25" inch disks of the registered version, manual, addendum and id postcard.

It's said rare and amazing version of the game that you can grab via this DOOM CIB Lot eBay auction. Bid on it and you'll also be bidding on a complete, boxed version of DOOM II: Hell on Earth, a shareware version of Wolfenstein 3D and 1000 of DOOM/DOOM 2 levels. And an interesting little extra too.

Seller ships to the Americas, Europe, Japan, Australia, China and South Korea.

Fresh Homebrew: Leisure Suit Leo 2 - The Secret of Maniac Island (C64)

Demented adventure game Leisure Suit Leo returns to the Commodore 64 with the highly promising Leisure Suit Leo 2 - The Secret of Maniac Island that can be grabbed both in downloadable format and as a lovingly boxed game on a 5.25" disk. This lovely new take on the 1997 adventure runs on PAL C64s and C128s, comes with all sorts of goodies and requires a disk drive and either a joystick or mouse. Also it looks lovely, lavishly boxed and will cost you 25 euros. You can order one of the few available copies here.

Scruffy and rare Jupiter Ace

Using Forth instead of BASIC and being all white in a era of black and beige 8-bit machines, the Jupiter Ace never really stood a chance. Not that it wasn't an interesting and cleverly designed micro, mind you, but those markets have always been too fickle. Anyway. For a chance to own one of these rare computers at a sensible price I suggest you have a look at this actually affordable Jupiter Ace eBay auction.

The micro is sadly scratched and looks pretty scruffy, but seems to be operating properly. It also comes with mains adapter, TV lead, cassette player cables, demo tape, manual and 6 tapes worth of games.

Seller ships to most of Europe, Australia, Russia, USA, Canada, Israel, New Zealand and Japan.
