Mega tree was a separate game to Willy meets the tax man and was about 40% complete: https://www.gamesthatwerent.com/gtw64/megatree-jsw3/ If I'm reading that page right, 'Willy Meets the Taxman' was an alternate title used to refer to Megatree, and the game hadn't got anywhere near 40% finished.

Re: Which MIA game would you love to have?

Surprised nobody has said Mega Tree by Matthew Smith.

Re: Which MIA game would you love to have?

I was also intrigued by the idea behind the 'original' Scooby Doo, though I suppose as it materialised (just in a changed shape) some might say it's not really MIA. Although I wasn't the biggest fan of Marsport, I would have liked to see how the sequel(s) - Fornax and Gath - turned out. I remember ...

Re: Games for your family

Before we had a Speccy we had a Dragon 32 and that was used by the whole family, well I say whole family but my sister was 14 so all she was interested in was Sisters of Mercy, Simple Minds, Killing Joke and Goth blokes.

Re: Spectrum games recreated in 3D

I like this idea. I wonder if you could do a left to right side scroller in 3d maybe something like Green Beret?
