It’s the Arcade Perfect podcast episode 51 and the feature game is Tecmo’s Solomon’s Key. We catch up with Swedish guest Mats from YouTube channel Gears of Games and chat about the Arcade Version and it’s many conversions (and rip-offs).

The boys are faced with a tough choice for there favourite and also the version getting the Golden Turd Award is not straightforward either. Let’s just say opinions differed!

Big thanks to Mats for his second visit. You can check out Gears for Games here > https://www.youtube.com/user/gearsofgameschannel

It’s episode 48 of the Arcade Perfect Podcast and it’s time for Daz and Taggster to test out all of the conversions of Bubble Bobble with our Bonkers guest Dave from This and That Gaming Podcast. It’s Madness!!!

With such a perfect game would there be a Golden Turd?
