TLL and Cyclone were a lot of fun, when you died it was your own fault and it felt like you were really piloting a vehicle.

Highway Encounter was a bit too cerebral for my 8,9,10 yr old brain and...... probly didnt have the instructions which didnt help.

Perhaps change the title to "Your second-best Costa Panayi game". ;)
In that case - I vote for Cyclone..! :lol:

Cyclone, definitely. Tornado Low Level was a bit thin in gameplay for my likings, I did not like the Android games - only forced myself to play the second for a Speccy Tour - and the Alien Highway/Highway Encounter titles, whilst technically impressive, did never appeal that much to me. Deflektor would come a close second, and HATE as a third.

Cosmos was the first game by Costa I actually played, and one of the very first games I played on the Spectrum. Very simple, but I remember I enjoyed it pretty much then.

Highway Encounter, by a country mile. One of the handful of games I completed, thanks to a Zapchat walk through. Each blockade has a logical solution. Nothing is random, so it can be predictable, but still there's tension that a nastie will change direction unexpectedly. And when you've worked your way through all 30-odd zones, you get a proper ending sequence. A fantastic ending sequence that wraps up the game nicely.

I played Cyclone a lot, thanks to the Sinclair User covertape. Great game. But Highway Encounter is just superb. Looks beautiful, plays well.
