ZX Spectrum High Score Club - any interest?

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

Okay, so Round 1 is now live. Do your worst!

The games pool after submissions from this thread is now 49 strong. Each round I will randomly nominate two of them. The pool is now closed, we have more than enough for the whole season.

There were some duplicates in submissions, so some of you folks can nominate extra games to make up the 5-each choice quota, if you wish. As follows:

@PeterJ - 1 extra game (for Bomb Jack & PSSST!, you had 6 entries thou)
@R-Tape - 1 extra game (for Parsec)
@DouglasReynholm - 1 extra game (for Arkanoid 2, because Arkanoid has already been nominated...)
@Freespirit - 2 extra games (for Target Renegade & Bomb Jack)
@Juan F. Ramirez - 2 extra games (for Deathchase & Bomb Jack)
@clebin - 1 extra game (for PSSST!)

@Alessandro - you have submitted a huge list of games so I picked the first 5 for now. Feel free to refine it and whittle it down to 5 favourites if you want. And please include Laser Squad! (or I will...also my fave ZX game) ...the idea of playing it for points is exhilirating :D

This season will have 10 rounds x 2 games each = 20 games, so of course not all of our choices will feature. So, pray to the RNG god!

Yes, I picked these, but meant that if you'd like to change this selection to some other games from your list you still can (everybody has 5 games quota)

All right. So I'll say:

- Ant Attack
- Lunar Jetman
- Travel With Trashman
- Split Personalities
- Laser Squad,
scenario "Laser Platoon", difficulty 4

That should be enough for a start! ;)

I also suggest we play Ant Attack with Tyrone C.'s new keys hack, much more comfortable than the old one.

I’m probably too late, but in case there’s time to add my last game, can it be Splat! by Incentive?

@clebin Didn't you choose one already? I noted your choices as

Chuckie Egg
The Pyramid
Kosmic Kanga
cannonball
Cookie

Though I'm a scatterbrain so maybe made a mistake?

Ah, yes, sorry. I’m a scatterbrain too. I forgot about Cannonball. EDIT: I see it’s in round 2 - cool!
