For me, hard hoice: the 'epic' of LoM vs the gameplay and fun of Spy vs Spy.

LoM got my vote at the end. It's a Spectrum classic.

I only really properly played (or tried to) Spy Vs Spy out of these and i didn't like it one bit.
Enigma Force or Shadowfire look like the ones i would have liked best, but don't think i ever played them.
Can't vote.

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...

1. Spy vs Spy. (For all the two player fun I had, and the fact that watching your opponent's screen whilst playing was half the game)
2. Lords of Midnight
3. Domdark's Revenge. (because they both are great!)


Psytron... I had a playground copy of that back way back when. I didn't have a clue what I was doing. I think today is the first time I've read the instructions. I'm not sure they made it particularly fun.

I really enjoyed Spellbound, which I bought at part of the SoftAid compilation. An obvious Q*Bert knock off, but fun.

Blimey, I said this would be a walkover for Lords Of Midnight, and while it has attracted a really healthy result, it actually ties for top place with Spy vs Spy! Genuinely am surprised at that. 8 votes each for these top-placed games, I guess the proportional results might break the deadlock...

Second place, with 4 votes, is Enigma Force.

Third place, with 3 votes, is Shadowfire.

Fourth place, 2 votes, Spellbound.

Joint fifth place, 1 vote each, Bounces and Doomdark's Revenge.

Okay, is Lords Of Midnight truly seen as the best Speccy game by Beyond by this forum? Could it be Spy vs Spy instead? Well, the proportional votes say...

Spy vs Spy 11
Lords Of Midnight 10
Enigma Force 3
Doomdark's Revenge 2
Shadowfire 2
Sorderon's Shadow 2

Wow!

I don't think we were expecting that!
