This week Paul Davies and Dean Swain take a walk through the most controversial retro video games ever made. From the beginnings with Death Race through Friday 13th and Sam Fox Strip Poker all the way up to Thrill Kill we delve into the games whose content caused hysteria in the public consciousness. In the middle section Paul Monaghan talks through his love for Dungeon Master and the memories the famous maze crawler offers. In the final segment the Retro Hunter dusts off his fedora and takes us through his latest retro gaming pick-ups.
