I feel like I've got a car showroom that has an Austin Allegro, two Ford Fiestas and a Ferrari Portofino, and I'm asking you to pick which one you'd like to test drive and be seen in.

Here we go with the poll, it concludes Sunday 19th Jan 2020...

Valhalla for me, just because it's the only gane I know of them (and an interesting adventure, by the way)

Somebody's actually voted for The Great Space Race. Wow. One of the most panned computer games ever.

Whenever we get to a poll for CRL budget label The Power House, I think that person will plump for Sqij.

I bought the The Great Space Race for 50p from a ZX Microfair. The stallholder theatrically said it was the last one he had, and acknowledged it was crap, but 50p wasn't bad for a blank tape (and amazing box, I thought).

As soon as I'd bought it, he brought another "last one" to sell from out of his box full of them.

I need to give Komplex City a try. I remember reading the review of it in Sinclair User and thinking it looked great, but never saw it in the shops. Turned out it was never officially “released” and was only rediscovered a couple of years ago.

I've just watched the vid and it reminds me of a speccy version of the DOS game Decent. Looks pretty impressive.
