Re: The best Speccy game by Microsphere: vote

There we have it. Skool Daze (which topped the original A-Z poll for the letter S) is the winner here with 14 votes, with its sequel Back To Skool coming second (9 votes). Quite surprised at Wheelie coming in third place (7 votes). Not that much love for the fourth-placed Contact Sam Cruise (2 votes...

Re: The best modern Speccy game beginning with C: vote

Well, what can I say? Castlevania: Spectral Interlude is the clear winner, scoring 8 votes, twice as many as the second-placed title. That second-placed title being Carlos Michelis - 4 votes. Third place is the 2017 128K-only remake of Crystal Kingdom Dizzy from an international team of coders - 3 v...

Re: The best modern Speccy game beginning with D: discussion

Dan Dare Dynamite Dan Ah, I should clarify - we're talking about games released in the Speccy's post-commercial period, so homebrew stuff after mid-1993 really. We did cover 'D' games from the commercial era in a poll, both games you mention were up for votes. Deathchase won it - see the results he...

The best Speccy game by Ultimate: discussion

Going down the results of the A-Z poll of polls , the next software house is Ultimate (or Ultimate - Play The Game as many people called it). An absolute behemoth of Spectrum gaming, with a reputation for quality that I dare say could be higher than any other software house. Now, the purists might m...

Re: ZX Spectrum games that appeared on other platforms

I know that the more up-to-date you go, it seems it's harder to find games linked to the Speccy era, but you do usually tend to find a package of retrogaming-themed collections on just about EVERY platform (lots on the live services from X-Box 360 and X-Box One). The two behemoths of retrogaming - S...

Re: ZX Spectrum games that appeared on other platforms

Looks like you took all the easy job and left the hard job for the others ;) Pretty much, yeah. I wasn't going to post it until I was finished, but then, what would be the point of that? That's a blog entry, not a forum post. And in any case, the list of 3rd gen consoles is a sitting duck - I'm fai...

ZX Spectrum games that appeared on other platforms

Here's a bit of a rabbit hole for you. A bit of a daft challenge I came up with for myself, and I just can't finish it. Obviously, we all love the ZX Spectrum, and yes, there were/are other systems out there. Is it possible, that for each system, you could name a game that was officially commerciall...

Pubs in ZX Spectrum games

If you were including ZX Spectrum pubs in The Good Pub Guide, what reviews would you give them? Here's a couple I came up with (back in 2014 on That Other ZX Spectrum Forum)... The pub, 180 Well stocked with spirits, yet has only one beer pump. The barmaid has lightning-fast skills in sliding full p...
