Sorry everyone but I've just clocked the awful, awful attempt to draw Lee Majors/Colt Seavers on 'The Fall Guys' loading screen.

"Well, I'm not the kind to kiss and tell, but I've been seen with Farrah.."

Yeah, Mo Farrah.
Nah, I reckon he looks more like Patrick McGoohan....

Got that shifty look about him, unsurprising considering how many people he murdered in Columbo...

1. Commando
2. Roller Coaster
3. Overlander

I also considered Frank Bruno, Kokotoni Wilf and Scooby Doo.

Thundercats would have been a contender also if I didn't lose a life every few seconds.

I'm the one who voted for Buggy Boy, and I reckon I'll be the ONLY one to have done so. Sorry, but it's the one I spent most time on. It's a pretty nice racer compared to the dog's dinner that is Out Run.

Of course, this is largely a battle between Commando and Bomb Jack - I'd have picked one of those if Buggy Boy didn't exist. They are both so incredibly good. Ghosts N Goblins also astonishing.

1. Buggy Boy
2. Bomb Jack
3. Commando
I voted for Buggy Boy too!

It was a brilliant game, got lots of fun out of it. I’d also agree that Bomb Jack and Commando are up there too, although I always had a soft spot for Bomb Jack II (which was definitely originally a Thundercats game, check out the C64 version and listen to the in-game music as well as the sprite looking more like Lion-O than Bomb Jack!

Kokotoni Wilf with Bombjack a close 2nd!

For many, this was the Bomb Jack vs Commando poll. It's been a huge slug-out between these two arcade classics, and you have to admit, Elite did a damned fine job on the conversions.

However, Commando confidently wins, with 16 votes, compared to second-placed Bomb Jack, with 9 votes.

Mopping up the rest? 4 votes gets you a joint 3rd place: Frank Bruno's Boxing, Ikari Warriors and Kokotoni Wilf.

2 votes each for joint 4th place: Buggy Boy and Ghosts 'N Goblins.

Finally, 1 vote each for joint 5th place: 1942, Roller Coaster, Scooby-Doo and Thundercats.

(Duet is eliminated because, as @Joefish pointed out, it was on two polls, and clearly belongs on the Hit-Pak poll.)

On the proportional vote, things are pretty similar at the top...

25 Commando
17 Bomb Jack
7 Kokotoni Wilf
5 Ghosts 'N Goblins
4 Frank Bruno's Boxing
3 Buggy Boy
3 Ikari Warriors
3 Scooby-Doo
3 Thundercats
2 Paperboy
2 Roller Coaster
1 1942
1 Airwolf
1 Overlander
1 Space Harrier
