Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with C: discussion

We should actually give Pete the week off for this one. C is one of those cases where you either know straight off that it’s Chuckie Egg, or you have a think about it and then vote Chuckie Egg. No, this is one of those cases where the Chuckie Egg and Chaos fans bicker, while Commando quietly wins. ...

The best classic Speccy game beginning with C: discussion

Well, this is gonna be a tough one. My favourite ZX Spectrum game, hell, my favourite game on any platform, Chaos, is a contender and I don't see it winning.

Bomb Jack.

No contest.

The best classic Speccy game beginning with B: vote

Two weeks ago we narrowly concluded that Atic Atac is the best classic Speccy game beginning with A. We've just had a week-long discussion on the Bs, and again, there are some outstanding choices that make voting difficult. This poll runs for 7 days, you're limited to one choice and the poll will be...
