Within the many pages of this site you'll discover lots of games reviews. Not all of them will be favourable, not all of them will contain 100 percent relevant information but hey - who cares?
The main objective of The Rubber Beermat is to provide reviews of Spectrum games. There are some great Spectrum games review sites out there, however as far as I can tell, there aren't that many fansites which review games quite like this.
The reviews are written magazine-style, describing the game as well as offering my opinion, links and pictures. As well as the 'good' games reviews [cunningly housed in the Games Review section], there are reviews of what I consider to be crap Speccy games. They are listed in the Awards section. There, the crap games are organised by categories whose descriptions befit a fictional award ceremony.
There's also the Spectrum emulator section which contains an 'average users' opinion of some emulators I have used. Finally, in the Other Speccy Stuff section, you can read about all kinds of articles which don't quite fit into the 'normal' reviews sections.
This includes the TRB Top 100 listing, what I think of the main UK news-stand Spectrum magazines, conversions of other games which weren't released on the Speccy, unusual charts, how I built TRB and even a bit about me (amongst other articles).
If you've stumbled across the World of Spectrum, got an emulator for your machine and want to read about some Spectrum games, then The Rubber Beermat is at your service.
And finally, just in case you're wondering ... the name of the site is taken from one of the nicknames the 48K Spectrum 'acquired', due to Sinclairs' odd choice of having a computer with rubber keys and its' relative small size. Well at least I thought it was funny.
Enjoy the site.
