Retro games are our bread and butter around here at Retro Gaming Magazine and new ones are sometimes harder to find than rooster teeth. Here lately though, information on new games is picking up and the games are interesting, not just drivel being pushed. One such interesting project is a reboot of Simply Magic, a Sinclair classic but for modern platforms.
Programmed by Colin Jones- the main programmer of the original- Slightly Magic will keep the original look and sounds. What will change with this reboot is that limitations of the Sinclair are no longer a concern so Colin can advance Slightly Magic farther than possible on the original hardware.
