Re: [Video] Mr. Wimpy

Other than the standard QAOPM for keys, I thought Mr. Wimpy had the second best (and something I'd never have came up with myself) ASXNM, with 'A' being the fire button. Why Ultimate used QWERT and didn't have a redefine option, or something more sensible, is beyond me. Anyway, sorry to go off at a ...

Re: "Golden Shoe" by Ocean?

Not adding much here, but in a database of Amiga games, there's an entry for Adidas Golden Shoe by Ocean France. It's marked as unreleased.

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with W: tiebreaker vote

I would've voted for Wizard's Lair in the original poll but was on holiday. Just voted for WOTEF in the tiebreaker and made it level at 21 votes apiece. Had no idea it was so close. Sorry.

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

That's the toughest so far - scanning down the list I changed my mind four times. In previous polls, there's been games which I probably 'should' have voted for (being worthier) but never played, but I've played the majority here and it'll be hard to come to a conclusion.

Re: The Games of Jon Ritman

I haven't heard of him being associated with the Design Design games before, but he's clearly listed on the database as having a hand in authoring them. He doesn't even list them on his own website. I know of the Chris Clarke association with Crystal Computing being renamed Design Design, but that's...

Pyjamarama for me, but there's some cracking games in there - it's everything 'O' wasn't.

Re: [insert game name here] would have been great if only you could....

All Ultimate games would've been better with the option to redefine the keys.

Whomever thought having up, down, left & right on the same row was mental.
