Voted for Three Weeks In Paradise in the end as I do have a bit of a soft spot for the Wally Week series.

I've just noticed that They Stole A Million isn't on the list, was it not considered good enough or just a case that, until now, nobody mentioned it?

Great list and pretty tough to pick just one. I was torn between Three Weeks in Paradise, Technician Ted, Transformers, TLL and Turbo Esprit, but, based on what I played the most BITD I went for Transformers!! I I know it seems an odd decision, but, me and my mate spent ages playing this game :D

Tough one as there are some classics in that list. I was tempted to vote for Trashman, Turbo Esprit, Trapdoor or Target: Renegade but in the end went for Three Weeks In Paradise. It was a solid arcade adventure and the best of the Wally games for me. I completed it very quickly and actually phoned Mikro-Gen up to see if I was one of the first but I was actually the third person to phone them.

I also inadvertently found the infinite lives cheat. It must have been due to a cheap death that I mashed the keyboard, heard a strange jingle and lo and behold: infy lives! This contributed greatly to me finishing the game so quickly :lol:

Thanks namco, that's a lot of pictures.

Tricky this one. These are my favourites of the bunch:

Tornado Low Level
Target Renegade
Thrust
Tir na Nog
The Trap Door
Trashman
Treasure Island Dizzy

Technician Ted would be there if it wasn't so bloody hard! Trap Door was great; it looked like a game for a more powerful system. I've had the most fun with Thrust and Target Renegade.

I should probably vote for Tir na Nog, it's a Speccy icon and I don't think there was anything quite like it at the time. However, I think one of the Renegade series deserves to win, and as Renegade didn't get 'R', it's got to be Target Renegade.

Yep, a great selection there. For me there are 5-6 games competing for 2nd place but I have to go for

Target Renegade

Used to be one of those games I could finish over and over, though after the first playthrough you start relying more on a combination of flying & back kicks to beat most of your opponents.

A fair few good titles here, but I'm going for the boxing glove bearing egg again - he's got to end up with one of these surely and Treasure Island Dizzy pretty much defined the formula that was used for every subsequent title.
