Re: New loading screens NOT by Andy Green :)

MACs loading screens are jaw dropping. His updated Space Harrier screen is basically witchcraft. :)

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with G: vote

Voted for The Great Escape. I nearly voted for Ghostbusters. I missed this when it first came out and was super excited to find it for £1.99 as a Ricochet re-release in Woolworths.
