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

3D Seiddab Attack an obvious missing classic there?

I'd also add 3D Painter to the list. It wouldn't win in a million years, but it was one of the games I got with my 16K Speccy so I have a soft spot for it. :)

180 is the obvious standout for me here - best darts game ever!

Virus would seem like an obvious candidate. Although I was always awful at it.

Re: Spectrum Basic:putting random numbers in an array

Try something like this: 10 randomize: dim a(10) 20 for n = 1 to 10: let a(n) = int(rnd*10)+1: next n 30 for n = 1 to 10: print a(n): next n Explanations: 10: initialise the random number generator and dimension your array of numbers, a, to hold ten numbers. 20: loop ten times, assigning a random nu...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with T: vote

So torn between Target Renegade and Trashman! Two of my all-time Speccy faves. In the end I went with Trashman, although I expect TR will most likely win out in the end. Honorary mention to Trapdoor, which is also absolutely superb!

Re: Unhallowed - a spooky text adventure for Halloween

At last completed this brilliant adventure, one of the best I have ever tried. Superb in all aspects, and, as an animal lover and owning 9 cats, I particulary enjoyed Shadow :) Just one small note, if you go to save Shadow without the knife, you get stuck on that room... Review soon at the blog, bu...
