In fact, if push came to shove, I'd say that Kosmic Kanga is the best game I've ever played.
That must have been one hell of a push :o

My tactic is to hold 'down' to do little hops along the bottom.
That's all very well in the horizontal levels, but it's a real shitshow on the vertical ones.

I've just scored measly 168,100 on Renegade.
Did somebody say 128K version is worse? I've tried both and didn't see much difference tbh.
Oh, I just meant I like it better without the music, which really doesn't suit or improve it. The game is identical as far as I can see.

By the way, Rev, did you not submit a Chuckie Egg score? I thought you did, or was it Laser Snaker only?
Yup, just LS.

It's written in Italian but the percentage markings at the end of each entry should be self-explanatory.
I am LOVING the Google Translate on that :lol:

Re: Best arcade conversions

And yeah, this is kinda my speciality field :lol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lpqhtm8_A5M&ab_channel=SpectrumNostalgia If not for using the wrong tune, this would have a strong claim as most accurate Speccy port ever, both visually and play-wise: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v87LzVqHadw&ab_ch...

Re: Best arcade conversions

But it's the modern-era Speccy arcade ports that have really knocked it out of the park, most of them among my all-time arcade faves. All of these were a dream come true for Olden Days Stuey and I can still barely believe how good some of them are: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jECS-LV1MYQ&ab_chan...
