Has to be Spooked, that was a great game. Although the only others I remember are Vatman and Robinson At, both of which were obviously aimed at selling Joe Blade 3!

Not played a single one. These must all be very late games to the speccy, i had probably moved on to the Amiga by the time these were coming out...

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...

Same here, but I’d moved to the mega drive. There are some good looking games but I wonder if there’s an element of ‘look good play crap’.

Many of these are 1989 or 1990 going by the years in the loading screens. I had definately moved on before these. They look like a decent bunch of games though.

IIRC Players Premier was the "premium" budget label for Players in the later days, priced something like £1 higher than their other titles, so in theory they should all be later games and all of a better quality (YMMV)

Players first title was in 1986 and the last in 1991. Players Premier titles were only released in 1989 and 1990.
