...which I think was based on a NES effort. Really terrible.
It was really great.
I'd have been disappointed with it at a budget price. At best, it'd be interesting as a magazine covertape inclusion.

Re: Best Selling Spectrum Game

Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles sold 420,000 copies in November 1990 on the Spectrum. That's what the Mirrorsoft MD Peter Bilotta told us and that's what is engraved on the personalised pewter hip flask he subsequently gave to every Mirrorsoft employee to mark the achievement. I still have mine. This w...

No one above can beat Mister Kung Fu!
We may have to go with that—Prodge has probably run for the hills after seeing the size of the list!
Well, I have an easier-than-normal job with the three classic software label polls, so I guess it's all swings and roundabouts!

I like a few of those so I have picked my top 3

1. Trashman
2. 3D Tunnel
3. Knot in 3D
Thanks, but remember to post that top three again on Sunday next week (26th), as that'll be when I start the seven-day poll.

Flicking through that first edition of Crash, and New Generation Software have a full page advert on page 3. Having gone through the database, these are the Speccy games from Malcolm Evans's label... 3D Tunnel Cliff Hanger Corridors Of Genon Custard Kid, The Escape Jonah Barrington's Squash Knot In ...

The best Speccy game by Puffin Books: discussion

A little tangent of the Crystal Computing games discussion thread, as Warlock Of Firetop Mountain was a Speccy game based on the famous book from Puffin, developed by the software house but actually published by Puffin Books. In total, there are just two tangible ZX Spectrum games from Puffin... For...

The best Speccy game by Crystal Computing: discussion

Okay, I've exhausted every software label (and associated 'sister' software labels) from the infamous classic ZX Spectrum game A-Z poll of polls . In order to cover other software labels, I've decided to pick the first issue of Crash, and go through them in order of mentioned software labels. Crysta...

The best modern Speccy game beginning with M: discussion

Right, as I always say, I know almost nothing about the homebrew scene, so this is where you have seven days to nominate titles of modern ZX Spectrum games (this time beginning with M), and then I run a week-long poll here starting from next week. At the end of that, we can say we've got halfway thr...

Re: The best Speccy game by Legend: vote

Well, to nobody's surprise, Valhalla's got this. That's an understatement, like 80% of the vote share, which I think might be the highest in any of my forum polls ever. 20 votes easily secures the winning spot for Valhalla, no question. A distant second is Komplex, with 4 votes. Then in third place,...

Re: The best Speccy game by A 'n' F Software: vote

Still reeling from the shock result of the Beyond poll! However, no surprises in this one, Chuckie Egg is the runaway winner, as expected. 16 votes secures its place at the top. Nearest competition has 9 votes, that's Xeno in second place. Third placed, with 4 votes, is Chuckie Egg 2. Then, in joint...
