Contribute away! As usual, I'm in the dark on this kind of stuff, so do submit your homebrew favourites here...

I won't be able to start the poll next Sunday as I normally would, as I'm over at Play Expo in Blackpool (filming for Reheated Pixels and playing old systems). Sunday 20th October is when I intend to run this as a poll...

If anybody would like to play Horace in the Mystic Woods - the conversion to the Spectrum from the Psion handheld of the 4th official Horace title with the support of the original programmer - it can be downloaded from https://bobs-stuff.itch.io/ for free, or consider a donation if you can afford to.

Hobbit, El is probably my top choice. It's also my favourite of all JBVG's games. The graphics could be better coloured, but I love the personality and the adventure element of this game.

Heart Stealer 2. A very cool riff on VVVV.

Hyperkill. A well above average AGD game. However, Raffaele Cecco has ripped him off!

Harbinger 2. A very polished run-and-gunner.

Actually there's a few I'd forgotten here. My top vote isn't certain now.

Higgledy Piggledy

^This^ is a gem. I must dig it out again sometime. It's a cassette only release, so unfortunately it hasn't been widely appreciated.
