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

Slimmer pickings for C and most of my ideas have already been listed, but I would like to suggest Cabal - a most excellent arcade port.

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

Not my choice, but a very worthy winner!

Do we vote for an overall winner once you have one for each letter? :-D

Re: Sound libraries, any examples.

I used Shiru's "BeepFX" to generate sound effects for my last couple of projects, it's great fun to play around with and makes some super beeps and farts. It even has a randomize button that you can keep hitting if you don't really know what you want. The assembly code it generates is pretty compact...

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

This is much harder than the 'a' vote was. I can see the love for Bomb Jack because I absolutely love it myself, but in terms of sheer time spent playing I think Back to Skool just nudges it for me, and has the added bonus of being a Speccy original.

Re: Golden Rubber Keyboard Awards

I made my own top ten list over on Twitter (https://twitter.com/Blerkotron/status/9 ... 2059983874), but a proper discussion and vote with multiple categories would be a super idea!

Re: Horace & The Robots

Probably the best Berzerk/Frenzy clone I've ever played on a home system - really excellent stuff! My only minor niggle is that it doesn't have a high score table - a weird omission in a game which is basically an endless score-attack. Well worth your time, though - especially if you can hook up a C...

Re: The A-Z of the best Speccy games (modern: post-1993)

Indeed, it's a great idea - the 'modern' Speccy games really don't get the attention they deserve and it'd be nice to have a list of the very best of the best to help newcomers get started. If they actually read it instead of saying "hey, who remembers Manic Miner?!" for the 438th time. ;)

Re: Have you ever completed a text adventure?

I seem to remember beating Subsunk, but I can't remember if I had any magazine help or not.
