My suggestions are:

Psycho Pigs U.X.B. by U.S. Gold
I never played it, but upon reading that I instantly remembered the advertisement for the game.

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with O: discussion

My +2 from Curry’s came with a couple of, “O” games, which I think were the best of the 10 received that Christmas morning, competition was pretty low it has to be said. Oh Mummy – very simple game with basic graphics, that was probably my favourite of the games that came with the Spectrum. Was quit...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with N: discussion

Of the list the only one I recall playing, and one I really liked, was Nigel Mansell’s Grand Prix and I see that it was by Martech, whom I thought, “I’ve never heard of them,” when I saw the post about their first and last games – clearly I must have though, seen as I owned this game! 'Tis the curs...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with N: discussion

It amazes me each time the game selection for these polls goes up and I’ve hardly heard of any of them. I played the spectrum loads in my youth and had a serious amount of games, as did my neighbour. Just shows how many were actually produced for the machine. Of the list the only one I recall playin...

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

As much as I realise Manic Miner is a classic, iconic and groundbreaking game in its day, I voted for Match Day 2. It is a game from my time with the +2 that I remember waiting to be released, and which I definitely was not disappointed in when I got my hands on it, played it for hours and hours. Al...

Re: Your top 5 arcade games

Star Wars was always the machine I wanted to see in the games room of any hotel we stayed at on holiday in the early/mid-80s.

Re: Every cover of Crash, in one image...

What amazes me is that the covers I remember really well, I assume from the ones I purchased, cover quite a short time span, basically a year and a half. Yet thinking back my memory is of Crash being a huge part of my early teens. Funny how great an impact things make on you at that age – probably w...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with L: discussion

There are three 007 games beggining with L: - Licence to Kill - Linving Daylights, The - Live and Let Die The only 007 game I've played a lot it's been A View to a Kill, none of the above though, so do you think it's worth including these three games in the poll? I had the Living Daylights back in ...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with J: discussion

Jack the Nipper is the one that jumps out at me from that list. Not only did I love the game, but the comic strip in Your Sinclair was a definite favourite part of that magazine. A game where being naughty was the aim certainly appealed to me as child. The cartoon graphics were great and the game pl...
