Wait till letter 'Q' (only two threads away) or 'X'! :D
Quazatron, surely. Probably even less competition than M.
Hell yes!!! Q is such an easy pick. May be a short list, but nothing comes close to KLP2.

One Man And His Droid for me. O is a bad letter isn't it. Ralf is right, hard to pick the best of a bad show.
I'm very tempted to go for On The Run too, i'm still unsure which to pick so i might switch over the next few days.

I know my P game already, cos i'm not a wally.

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

Orc Attack was a great game, a classic i'd agree, but i'd have to go for One Man And His Droid - Mastertronic One other O game i can think of not yet mentioned - One Hundred and Eighty - Mikro-Gen https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=1443 (my favoured version of One Man And His Droid)...

This is a one horse race, the rest are donkeys compared to the supreme classicness of Manic Miner. No contest for M.

Luna Crabs Wow Luna Crabs!!!! I forgot about that little gem. It was the first game that I bought when we our little rubber-keyed beauty back in '84!! We'd had a Dragon 32 in 83 but after several tech issue we went back to Boots (yes, you could get a computer from a Chemists back in the 80s :) ) an...

Light Force is likely my vote.

No contest on this letter. Should be a whitewash.

Roughly speaking, classic is 1982-1993. Homebrew would be post-1993. I don't think classic Spectrum games van...
