Re: The best Speccy game by Bug-Byte: discussion

Sodov ( Oh how I laughed when I was kid) was a staple game when we used to go round my mates house at lunchtime whilst chomping through cheese and branston sandwiches.

The only other games I played in the list were Styx and Manic Miner. MM is still up there in my top games of all time.

Re: Game of the day...

Playing a lot of JuanFRamirez by Indescomp, lately. http://i66.tinypic.com/k1thtd.jpg I had this game on a tape my dad got from bloke he worked with. It got to the point where my dad would come back from work with a huge list of games and I just had to tick the ones I wanted!!! Shocking behaviour :...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

Does anyone know, what was the Spectrum Next presentation at the Play Expo Manchester? Was it shown a fully completed computer with case or not? Cant find anything on Next forum ... It doesn't get much better than this vid with Baggley looking like a proud father: https://www.youtube.com/embed/e2mR...

Re: Those games that you couldn't get...

I always wanted Shadow of the Unicorn. I yearned to play this amazing adventure game that was so massive 48k was not enough memory.

A few years ago I finally purchased a copy and it's rather.....well.....it's just a bit 'meh'.

Does anyone think it's a travesty?
I'm pretty happy with this to be honest. MM is indeed a great game.
