Re: Little bugs in the database

To add to the Laser Squad info above, I remember doing some poking around with the various releases and expansion pack etc. last year. I posted all my corrections/findings into this thread: https://www.worldofspectrum.org/forums/discussion/55057/ It's a shame that there's probably a ton of other fi...

Re: Little bugs in the database

This is not necessarily a bug in the database and could well have been researched in the past and found to be incorrect. Sophistry (https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=4648) is currently allocated to Authors TFMG and TEBS which is what is displayed on the loading screen. However, the...

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

Uridium for me. Didn't play Underwurlde much back in the day and I'd moved from the Speccy by the time The Untouchables came out. The rest are an average bunch. Still don't think Uridium is that great (didn't think much of the C64 original either) but it's a super conversion of something that was co...

Re: ZXDB Magazine reference corrections

Whilst I've got my corrections head on here's a few missing or incorrectly flagged reviews from The Games Machine that I've been going through recently. https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/mag.php?issue_id=1789&page=50 Wizball (5713) - Issue 1, Page 50. This is flagged as News/Note when IMO it should be...

Re: Paul Farrow's website?

Fine for me. Can you try via a phone with 3/4G rather than your WiFi. That should soon tell you if it's your ISP or not.

Universal Hero
Urban Upstart

Think this one might be a small list with a very obvious winner!

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

Tough one as there are some classics in that list. I was tempted to vote for Trashman, Turbo Esprit, Trapdoor or Target: Renegade but in the end went for Three Weeks In Paradise. It was a solid arcade adventure and the best of the Wally games for me. I completed it very quickly and actually phoned M...

Re: Proposal: ZXDB marking in posts?

Don't know if I'm missing something here but wouldn't a ZXDB Trello board be an ideal solution? It's free, can limit access if you wish (or just make it publicly accessible to everyone) and it's simply a case of each change request gets its own card. Once the request is complete move it from a Reque...

ZX Spectrum Reviews

Hi guys, A year ago (almost to the day) I announced the closure of the ZX Spectrum Reviews website. In the meantime I've still been adding reviews to the database and have just completed all 100-odd issues of the C+VG reviews. Earlier this year I did actually find some free ASP.NET hosting and resur...

Re: The inevitable worst game ever thread

Going by games I actually owned as kid, and therefore had to put some effort into, rather than stuff I've fired into an emulator for 20 seconds I would nominate: Corridors of Genon - I know this is considered a decent early Speccy game but I absolutely hated it. It was abysmally boring. Warlock of F...
