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...

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

I have no recollection of International Match Day. I remember playing the original a lot and then the exciting build up until the release of Match Day II. But International Match Day must have completely passed me by. I assume it must have come out near the end of games manufacturing on the Spectrum?

Re: Golf games

One of the first games I played on the Spectrum was Crazy Golf as that came with my +2.

As for a, “proper,” golf game, Leaderboard is the only one that I can recall playing.

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

My memory of Gauntlet is more about it always being at the top of the readers charts in Crash magazine. To my mind it was there for years, but that probably is more about how time was much slower as a child, and the reality was it was only on top for a month or two (?) Of the games there, Grand Prix...

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

Went for Formula One, spent a lot of time playing that against the Spectrum, and against friends on occasion. Could lose whole afternoons to completing a couple of seasons of that. But it was a tough choice as I could say the same for Football Manager. While Fantasy World Dizzy was my favourite of t...

Re: What makes you continue your Spectrum interest?

Is all nostalgia for my childhood really, from about 11 to 15 computer games on my spectrum were a huge part of life. I also got a Sega Mastersystem at 14, but caught the music bug at 15 and lost interest in both machines. Since then computers only really figured in my life for University purposes a...

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

But the other deciding factor was the fact that unbelievably it was the only one on the list that I have actually played. I’ve heard of a few of the games on that list, but most I’m afraid to say are a complete mystery to me! Wow! Try most games, it's worth playing them. But if you have to choose o...

Well I went for Enduro Racer as I loved it back in the day and spent many hours playing. But the other deciding factor was the fact that unbelievably it was the only one on the list that I have actually played. I’ve heard of a few of the games on that list, but most I’m afraid to say are a complete ...

Re: Your top-5 sports games

1. Match Day 2 2. Footballer of the Year 3. Football Manager 4. Nigel Mansell’s Grand Prix 5. Jet Bike Simulator I was tempted to include World Games, as I remember playing it a lot, but decided it wasn’t actually good enough to merit a top five place. In fact I don’t think it would make my top ten ...
