Re: Cavern Fighter speed POKE

Can we have a section for POKES. ?

Wasn't there an integration with some other website to provide game pokes?

Elite would have been great if only you could get past Lenslok. :-D
As far as I remember I have a tape of Elite (somewhere) without Lenslock.

Re: Which games really pushed the Speccy?

Since no one mentioned it yet, Renegade was a real game changer for fighting games. And I'm not sure if anyone mentioned it yet, but Elite was also a breakthrough due to the depthness and sense of infinite space it provided. Commando and R-Type, which were already mentioned, also brought a new level...

Interesting attract mode with a nice presentation.
How many KBytes have you used already ?

NOTE: At first, I didn't register that this was a ZX Next project.
