Which Speccy game would you put in an arcade?

General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

I now imagine a variant of Burger Time where you have to be aware of customers' food allergies and gluten intolerance.
It's called 'No-Bap'! :lol:

(Yes, I know, I copied the screenshot title, and I at least read some Greek, I know how it's supposed to be pronounced! :twisted: )

Surely the obvious Speccy game that needs to be in an arcade is Penetrator.
SO IT CAN HAVE TWO ******* BUTTONS!

Aside, has anyone hacked it so it simply fires and drops bombs (where it can) when you hit FIRE?

This thread has the code fix and a snapshot to download in the first post. I have the thing somewhere but I can't find it!

EDITED - my link worked.

Great post Denis,

The names make sense apart from JetPac. I guess it means 'Assemble the Snowstorm', and "snowstorm" is the name of the rocket?

If you mean the .tzx, I found a copy of it here.

Looks like a wholly original spaceplane design there! :lol:

I think Chequered Flag would have been shocking in the early years of arcade, around 1980.

Not sure if this is cheating, but maybe Target Renegade? Great two-player action, good music.

Maybe a little too easy to swallow many coins though.
