You've got the wrong screenshot for Spore! It wasn't a text adventure, but a rather spiffy shoot em up. Well, on the C64 it was. It was a bit rubbish on the Spectrum.

Gah, you're right! I hate it when there are more than one game that has the same name.

Anyways, this is what Bulldog's Spore looks like...

1. Streaker
2. Feud
3. Scumball

As good as Feud is, you do tend to spend a lot of the time wandering around in circles, a bit like Robin O' The Wood in that respect.

I can only vote for Scumball as that’s the only game I played out of this list :oops:
Ditto. Sorry to say, i hated Feud.

I don't have anything cool to put here, so i'll just be off now to see a priest with yeast stuck between his teeth and his friend called Keith who's a hairpiece thief...

As is completely right, Feud wins this poll, with a landslide victory - 12 votes. It truly is an fantastic and underrated game. Everything else in the forum poll is far behind, but hey, moving on...

Second place with 3 votes is Colony. (Press BREAK on the menu screen to turn your ZX Spectrum into a terrible computer, btw.)

In joint third place, Scumball and Streaker (the former has some wonderful 50fps movement), each with 2 votes.

Joint fourth place with 1 vote each: Jackle & Wide; Spore and Wolfan.

Proportional top-three system brings up slightly different results...

Feud 7
Streaker 6
Destructo 3
Scumball 1
Wolfan 1
