Crash Annual 2019

I’ve had a look, and unless I’ve missed it, there doesn’t seem to be a post about the kickstarter for the 2019 Crash annual. The magazine was a big part of my Spectrum days, I got a subscription for my birthday which had Renegade as the free gift, definitely a good choice – don’t remember what the o...

Re: The Games of Jon Ritman

The two Match Day releases are the only ones of his that I really played, but I did play them rather a lot and loved them. So for them alone I applaud his programming. I was aware of Head over Heels, but other than a couple of shots of a friends version I didn’t really get in to it at all. While the...

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

Going through those screen shots brought back a lot of memories, I would love to be 11 years old again and rushing home from school to fire up the Spectrum to play some of those. The game that jumped out for me on seeing the screen shots was Road Runner, I’d long forgotten about that one, but now I’...

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

After sitting out of the Q vote due to not knowing any of the games, I’m going to have to do a bit of thinking to decide what to vote here. The ones that jumped out straight away were, Robin of the Wood, Renegade, Rampage, R-Type and err, Rock Star Ate My Hamster, spent so many hours playing those g...

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...
