AKA the one where Deathchase will storm it.

Micromega published a lot of simple casino and puzzle games, but they did have some pretty neat efforts, more than a few by Derek Brewster.

They also developed a lot of educational software for Longman, but we're not concentrating on that, we're after ZX Spectrum games published under the Micromega brand and here are all 17 of them..

1. Deathchase (SURPRISE!)
2. Jasper.
3. Haunted Hedges (I was young, ok?)


I always found Jasper so damned hard, but loved it. Actually one that I played because of the glowing Crash! review. I wanted to love it as much as they did, so I did. Aren't kids weird?

As much as I wanted to vote for Luna Crabs, as it was the first game I ever bought and played on my first speccy, I've gone for Deathcahse because it's just so damn good.

1 - Deathchase
2 - Luna Crabs
3 - Full Throttle

1. Deathchase
2. A Day In The Life
3. Kentilla

If the collision detection on ADITL was a little bit better then I would have placed it above Deathchase.
