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

Gotta get a Joffa one in and H and C are done, so Green Beret. It's was certainly better than Ghosts'n'Goblins.
Better than Great Escape?

Exolon is definitely the best for E.

So difficult to pick. R-Type feels like it deserves a place, but that excludes Robocop and Rainbow Islands. I think the only choice I'm not conflicted with is ZZoom and only because I wasn't a fan of Zombie Zombie.

Not sure I could settle for Chaos for C. Chase HQ all the way, Mr Driver.

Ooh some potential controversy here. I'm going to jump in and grab M, I'd like to grab R too but don't want to be greedy.

Common prefixes like "the" and "a" are ignored, so "The New Zealand Story" effectively begins with N, if you see what I mean.
Reason: I've said it all before about being tremendous fun and filled with quirky humour. Manic Miner is a game that, for many, defines the Spectrum. It's possibly the only game that was ported to other machines with more advanced graphical abilities yet still chose to replicate the look of the Spectrum, that speaks volumes.
And I think S needs to be Sir Fred. Controversial, perhaps, but such a great game.

Would anyone argue with Xenon?

A few of you would probably drop the 'n'?
