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...

Re: The best Speccy game by Activision: discussion

When I remember Activision it is Rampage and Enduro Racer that come to mind, two great games.

Re: Games that would really benefit from music

I thought Batty was a brilliant game, and it is probably the spectrum game I still play the most to this day. It had the gameplay, nice graphics and great colours, all that was missing was a tune.

Re: The best Speccy game by Rack-It: discussion

I though Draughts Genius was great, at the time was really impressed with the graphics and thought the music was done really well – can’t off the top of my head remember what piece of music it was that they used though.

Don't recall playing any other game from Rack-It though.

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

*Tumbleweed blows past* ZX Next Kickstarter Update #49, first really good news in a long time but we're all studiously ignoring it? *lone cricket* 2hr later edit: Just seems a bit odd is all. I'm quite pleased by the news, maybe others feel they have heard it all before. I don't know, but on the fi...

Re: The best Speccy game by Ocean: vote

Well I’m sure their use of marketing and licences worked on me as there was a lot of Ocean games that I had to go out and purchase when they came out. Whereas a lot of my games collection from other software houses were more done on a whim in the shop based on price, artwork and graphics, or because...

Re: The best Speccy game by Imagine: vote

Starting my spectrum life with a plus 2 meant I missed the first incarnation of Imagine, so to me they were always a software house of the big coin-up’s. I was completely oblivious to their early games and how they started out. I got Renegade as a free gift when I subscribed to Crash magazine, me an...

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...
