The A-Z of the best Speccy games (classic: 1982-1993)

General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

Perhaps it would be easier to consider only classic games here, and compile later a separate list for modern games?
Ah, so 1982-1993 is the 'classic' era, and post-1993 being 'modern', I'm guessing?
I've just amended this thread to be only the 'classic' era.

In this case, I bet nobody will disagree about Fairlight, Great Escape, Into the Eagle's Nest, Lords of Midnight, R-Type, Saboteur 2, Target Renegade, Uridium, Where Time Stood Still, and Zynaps!

As it's been mentioned I'm going to grab it and give a reason (I think that's Pete's intention for the thread)

R-Type
Reason: It’s an arcade conversion that massively surpasses expectations, when it would have been challenging enough just to produce something humdrum. An inspired coder taking some very bold (or plain risky) design decisions and a talented graphical artist combine resulting in this outstanding firework display of a shooter.

Ok, let's make things in a correct way... 🙂

Knight Lore. Is there any reason to explain it?

It's probably one of the best Spectrum games ever (ok ok, that's my opinion!), great adventure, atmospheric, original, ...

Surely A has to be Atic Atac?
