It's been rather tricky to suss out what original ZX Spectrum games come out under the Hit-Pak label - a compilation/budget brand used by Elite that also dabbled with rereleases from itself, Durell, Faster Than Light and others...

Thanks to this forum, I've determined that these are the six games that originally came out as Hit-Pak titles...

3DC

Airwolf II

Battleships

Batty

Duet

Great Gurianos

Usual thing applies. Seven days from this post, the poll concludes.

Went for Duet.

Might have gone for Batty if it weren't for the difficulty spike(s) so early in the game.

1 - 3DC
2 - Batty
3 - Duet

I chose 3DC as I love isometric adventures (as this is a cool one). Batty is a good Arkanoid clone (or is Arkanoid a good Batty clone???) and Duet, not being a deserved Commando sequel (teorethically) is cool to play.

1. Great Gurianos
2. Batty
3. 3DC

Duet was a 'surprise' sequel to Commando wasn't it? Nowhere near as good though.

I came back after realising I'd forgotten to give my #2 and #3 votes but it looks like Batty is running away with it..! :o

For what it's worth:

1. Duet
2. Batty
3. Battleships
