Re: Awful graphics, but a brilliant game

Well I was never put off by the graphics in Football Manager, was still engrossed in the game highlights despite the stickmen and the oversized goals.

Re: Royal Mail Retro video games stamps

I saw that, and thought having Elite and Dizzy in there were quite cool, definitely the two that resonated with me. I was quite surprised though at the choice of Dizzy, I’d have expected it to have been Jet Set Willy. Maybe it was to do with getting permissions to reproduce and sell the images?

Re: The best Speccy game by Beyond Software: discussion

I had a copy of Lords of Midnight, but as with other adventure games, I just never got into it.

For me Spy v Spy is the stand out from that list - though in saying that I am concerned I didn't actually play it, and my memories of it being good are in fact from Spy v Spy III.

Off the top of my head, Chuckie Egg is the only one of these that I can recall playing - many times may I add.

Re: What Speccy mag would you like see return?

Crash just edges it over Your Sinclair for me, I had a subscription to it, while I used to just pick up copies of YS when I saw them in the Newsagent and something in the issue appealed. I had a few copies of Sinclair User, but it wasn’t anywhere as near as good. I did get the recent Crash annuals, ...

Re: Games for your family

Was just me and my younger brother on the Spectrum, parents didn't touch it. Wasn't until the Internet came along many years later that my mother used a computer

Re: The best Speccy game by Mastertronic: vote

Mastertronic were a huge part of my growing up with the Spectrum, those yellow cassette cases definitely invoke a huge dose of nostalgia. Several games that mean a lot to me, Future Games, must have been one of the first games I got as it does hold a special place in my Spectrum memories, even if it...

Re: The best Speccy game by Elite: vote

For me Commando was just ahead of Paper Boy, very close. Thinking about it, I have a hankering to have a go now. The other game I really thought about was 1942, so that completes my top 3.

1. Commando
2. Paper Boy
3. 1942

Re: The best Speccy game by Elite: discussion

I really loved Paperboy, spent loads of time playing that, even though it was pretty repetitive, but I still got a sense of achievement every time I correctly delivered a paper or knocked a bin over, and I loved smashing windows of folk not part of my route. The other two stand outs are Bomb Jack an...
