The best classic Speccy game beginning with #: discussion

Looking at the games list there's only one I played and that wasn't back in the day.

Someone else can kick this off. I don't think there's much of a choice anyway.

180
10th Frame
1942
1943
1985
2112AD
3 Deep Space
3D Tanx
4x4 Off Road Racing
720 Degrees
3D Construction Kit
3D Game Maker

No real stand outs but some half decent titles there. 10th Frame was an underrated gem IMO.

Could 3D Monster Maze count here? It's a 16K Zeddy game...

4 minute warning. Worth a mention for oldschool speccy character, originality and charm.
1985 - The Day After. Quite slick, plays better than it looks. Too hard of course. (Is that the "1985" you meant Vampyre?)

Surely 3D Deathchase deserves to win this.

It's good, but not sure it deserves to win again! Though I'd like to give Dynamite Dan aka 2D-Dynamite Dan another bite of the cherry.

That wasn't 3D Deathchase, that was Deathchase. They must be two different games.

3D lunar Crabs - first game I ever bought for my beloved speccy.

I’d have to decide between 180, as I thought it was a brilliant darts game, and 3D death chase, which is an absolute classic, which even to this day it’s still a brilliant game.

After a not knowing the titles in the y and z polls I’m happy to see some familiar games mentioned here. 180 and 1942 were two games I played a lot, and loved. My younger self used to think it was hilarious when the dog peed at the end of the bar in 180.

I also played 720 quite a bit, though always felt that it was a bit unsatisfactory, as there was never any real feeling of accomplishment with it.
