The best modern Speccy game beginning with T: 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 T), and then I run a week-long poll here starting from next week.

Away you go!

The best Speccy game by Abacus Programs: discussion

Another software label I plucked from page 9 of the first ever Crash. Notable only in my eyes for publishing a game from alternative comedian Simon Munnery (aka Alan Parker: Urban Warrior).

I've come up with nine tangible ZX Speccy games from Work Force, s...

Sword Of Ianna is extremely popular, so as predicted, it's topped the phpBB poll and the proportional poll. 8 people put in votes for it on the phpBB poll. Now, to answer t...

Re: The best Speccy game by Star Dreams: vote

Cybertanks is the clear winner here, with 3 votes.

Startrek is second, with just 1 vote.

Over on the proportional system, well, there was just one entry, which translates to this:

Cybertanks 3
The Sandman Cometh 2
A Spell Of Christmas Ice 1

Re: The best Speccy game by C.C.S.: vote

I had this on a C90 tape someone gave to me - at a time when C90 tapes were a rare thing as cheap tape-to-tape ghetto blasters weren't a thing - and I loved the fact it was quite a deep strategy ga...
