The best Speccy game by Bulldog Software: vote

Okay, the time it takes to put these polls together on a Sunday morning usually means I restrict them to just three at a time.

I'm slowly going through the eight Mastertronic brands, alphabetically. We've had the discussion on that, so next week I'm gonna fire through the next three brands, which means going through Entertainment USA, Mastertronic itself and the Mastertronic Added Dimension (aka M.A.D).

Anyway, this is for the 12 ZX Spectrum games published under the short-lived Brit-themed Bulldog Software budget label, controlled by Mastertronic...

Streaker also has (see Mikro Gen poll) a loading screen/theme that would be 'problematic' nowadays.. Pete - theres an idea for a poll when you inevitably run out of letters.. "most unlikely Speccy games to get the green light in 2019". I should add that this stuff doesn't bother me, it's only a comment on how times have changed..!

I hope so, it's one of my all time favourite games.

Heh, I do like the 'underside' of retrogaming. Two weeks ago, while drinking on a Saturday afternoon, I told friends about a notorious ZX Spectrum game, one that's, shall we say, a CAFE where PARADISE occurs? Anyway, one of the guys has a laptop he's doing work on, so he breaks off that, installs Fuse and we load up the game - which I've never played before but have heard of its rather adult nature - and wow. We got a lot of dropped jaws and a lot of laughs out of it.

I can only vote for Scumball as that’s the only game I played out of this list :oops:

Colony. That was a fun, under-rated resource management game.
