Freedom from Torture

We provide care to survivors of torture to rebuild lives and promote human rights

Charity Registration No. 1000340


That's right, I have decided to get in the robot once more to take on another wave of strange video games on a variety of old systems ranging from the Sinclair ZX81 to the Nintendo DS. This time, I hope to raise at least £300 for Freedom from Torture.

From Freedom from Torture:
Freedom from Torture is the only UK-based human rights organisation dedicated to the treatment and rehabilitation of torture survivors. Your support could help provide counselling, group therapy and ongoing support for survivors of torture. Your donation will help give someone hope and strength on their journey to recovery.

This challenge will be streamed at - so be sure to come and join the 'fun'! I will be starting at 9am on Saturday 14 December 2019 and won't be stopping until 9am the following day.

I'm preparing a revised list of games featuring new additions as well as some Weird Games Slamdown classics. Here's a handful of titles to give you an idea of what to expect:
*NSYNC: Get To The Show (Nintendo Game Boy Color)
Advanced Lawnmower Simulator (Sinclair ZX Spectrum)
Auf Wiedersehen Pet (BBC Micro)
Beavis and Butthead (Super Nintendo Entertainment System)
Bozo's Night Out (Commodore 64)
