Mastertronic Added Dimension, also known as M.A.D., was a way for Mastertronic to put out what they deemed were higher-quality-than-usual games, at a £2.99 price point. Most of the 29 original games they issued for the ZX Spectrum, met that criteria.

Later on, Mastertronic Added Dimension/M.A.D. got replaced by Mastertronic Plus, another brand of 'premium' feel games at a slightly higher price point than the typical budget games, although over half of that Spectrum catalogue were re-releases. I'll cover that in a poll next week.

For now, it's all about the original ZX Spectrum games released by Mastertronic Added Dimension AKA M.A.D...

Action Force by Virgin Games
These aren't up for voting though, original titles only!

A genuine tough one for me. I bought all the MAD releases when they came out and played them all to death...even the rubbish ones.

It's between 180 and Zub for me. Had to go with 180 in the end, it's definitively a fantastic darts simulator.

Got to be 180 for me as it's easily the best darts game available.

Zub by a mile, Amaurote had gorgeous gfx but damn was a tough game...
180, best darts game ever, but not a patch on these previous 2.

Zub
Amaurote
180

Also Terminus and Sport Of Kings. Top notch.
