Doin' The Do in 16bits / Magic Pockets - Bitmap Brothers

Again, how the hell can you get a fairly decent sampled version of a hit track (of the time) and a really detailed game into just 720Kb? I will honestly never know. Betty Bo - Doin' The Do, for those who don't know!

Magic Pockets was a charming little platform game from a time where platformers were all over the place and it was very hard to differentiate from all the titles out there. Bringing their wonderful design sense to the fore again, the Bitmap Brothers make use of all 16 colours of the Atari palette with cheeky character design, lush platform interiors, loads of different power ups and pickups with a toy / sweet theme. 

Original for a bit of nostalgia!
