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

I first played Super Off road on a PC, later on a Spectrum emulator. In fact, it was one of the first PC games I played, along with Lakers vs Celtics and Cisco Heat.

Maybe that's why I prefer the PC version.

I, Ball in second place along with Impossible Mission.

That's a game (I, Ball) that I haven't played much. A good excuse to try and play it! :)

Into the Eagle's Nest for me. My fave Gauntlet-like game, with an adventure component that makes it great to play.

Re: why sell a computer with only 1k of ram?

1K can be enough for marvellous things like the Artic's 1K ZX Chess. I've always been impressed by this game. According to the link, " It was the smallest implementation of chess on any computer until its record was broken in January 2015 by the PC-compatible BootChess"
