you don't get much sexier than a young lad whacking off with bubblegum in his pocket in the legendary 'Magic Pockets'. Speedball 2 and Xenon were also mint and about 27 years ahead of their time...
they were basically pirates.
You went to their shop and they saved the game onto one of their disk for you
They were the creators and resellers (I think) of loads and loads of games for Speccy, C64, BBC, etc. systems. I think they were either 99p or 1.99 in all newsagents. Some good games some rubbish but that was where you got most of your cassette games from.
The soundtrack to that was amazing (from wiki):
The Bitmap Brothers co-operated with the British musician Tim Simenon to include the Bomb the Bass hip hop track "Megablast (Hip Hop On Precinct 13)" as theme music, which is also the origin of the game's subtitle. In turn, the theme of this song is based on the theme of John Carpenter's Assault on Precinct 13 movie and features also many samples from Sly and the Family Stone song, "You Can Make It if You Try".
