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

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...

I know what would be really interesting. At the end of the alphabet, when we have our 26 winners, I wonder which year was dominant?

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

I came up with 'classic' to label the Spectrum's commercial era - when you could go into high street shops and find new games. Distinguishing it from the homebrew/hobbyist era we're in now. Roughly speaking, classic is 1982-1993. Homebrew would be post-1993. I don't think classic Spectrum games van...

Don't forget the title is "best CLASSIC Speccy game".

Re: Database model ZXDB

Absolutely superb work Einar, as always, and a big thank you to you and all those helping you. I'm paticularly interested in the ZX81 information which is currently growing as this was my first computer (10 years old, 1981). I have some very fond, but hazy (it was so long ago), memories of these ear...

Re: Golf games

One i remember from way way back was a basic program with ascii gfx only. You typed in a direction, a club type and strength and it calculated where the ball landed.
