  • Double Dragon, Ninja Gaiden and Contra be awesome!!
  • Double Dragon (ZX Spectrum & Arcade) added
    Ninja Gaiden aka Shadow Warriors (ZX Spectrum & Commodore 64) added
    Contra aka Gryzor (ZX Spectrum & Commodore 64) added
  • I'd be all over a Galaga background but these are pretty dope.
  • Got the batman one then edited a little black to see the time :-)
  • I have added a few more games: Rainbow Islands, Chase HQ & Wizball
    I'll have a look and see what the Double Dragon & Contra (Gryzor) loading screens are like on the Speccy & C64. I don't think Galaga or Ninja Gaiden ever made it onto the 8bits.
    Thanks for the comments and for taking a look!!
  • There are now 75 wallpapers for you to choose from!
    If anyone has any requests or comments please post here or in the blog! Thanks :)
  • RedHawk on C64 :)
