Re: Best BASIC game?

My first Spectrum was a +2, so Basic games were pretty much a thing of the past by then. But the one I did play, and play a lot was Football Manager, and thought it was a great game. I had a shot of it recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. Will definitely play it again when I get my Next and spend a b...

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

After a not knowing the titles in the y and z polls I’m happy to see some familiar games mentioned here. 180 and 1942 were two games I played a lot, and loved. My younger self used to think it was hilarious when the dog peed at the end of the bar in 180. I also played 720 quite a bit, though always ...

Re: Soccer Simulation Help

In Match Day 2 you could play either a league or cup competition, can't remember what you could play in Match Day - I should maybe go and have a game, loved them both back in the day.

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

No point doing this list to be honest, as it’s clearly going to won by the monumental William Wobbler :lol: I like William Wobbler. I'd add: W.A.R. by Martech Werewolves of London by Mastetronic William Wobbler by Wizard Computer Games Wolfman by CRL World Games by U.S. Gold ...but feel free to ign...

Re: Poll: Enduro Racer vs Out Run

I remember playing Enduro Racer a lot as a child and thinking it was great. Had a go on an emulator recently and thought it pretty playable and just how I remembered it.

Not sure about Out Run though, I definitely played Turbo Out Run as I owned that, but I’m not sure I ever played the original.

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

I backed a cased Next and have kept an eye on the project and read through each update as they have come. The thought of never receiving the computer hasn’t occurred to me, as far as I can see the people delivering are still there and appear to be working on the project. Very much a contrast from th...

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’...
