Game industry legend Gary Penn was kind enough to say how much he enjoyed playing Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint on Facebook, a day or so after it appeared on the App Store. In fact, he said he liked it so much he was going to award us an honorary Zzap! Sizzler!

Woohoo! A Zzap! Sizzler! was the award given to a top game in Newsfield's fantastic UK Commodore 64 magazine in the 1980s.

As mainly Spectrum and Amstrad developers we only ever got Crash Smashes and Amtix Accolades back in the 8-bit days, so it's brilliant to finally complete the set of Newsfield awards.

Thanks Gary, you've made our week!
