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...

Maybe it's better to stick to the games for standard Spectrum 48/128k models for now.
I agree, lets stick to standard Spectrum games for this one. I'm all for a ZX-Evo competition though in the future.

When I have some time to dedicate to the ol' Spectrum, I spend it making games rather than playing them ;)

However, if I have to pick a bunch of games, I would right now mention these:

- Cobra
- Cop-Out
- Ant Attack
- Worse Things Happen At Sea
- Split Personalities
- Hunchback
- Quazatron
- Ranarama
- International Karate Plus
- Lunar Jetman
- Karnov
- Green Beret
- Intensity
- Thundercats
- Renegade
- Exploding Fist
- Exploding Fist Plus
- Sai Combat
- Zzoom
- BC Bill

Lunar Jetman ?
Don't be so cruel, please... ;)

On the other hand, Ranarama is a great choice.

Actually Lunar Jetman is an old favorite of mine, I managed to reach as far as level 12 if I remember correctly.

Glad to see you share my appreciation for Ranarama :)

Edit: Coming to think of it, my all-time favorite Laser Squad gives a score upon ending a game. I heartily suggest it as well :D

Other titles coming out of the top of my head and that have not yet been mentioned:
- Deactivators
- Travel With Trashman
- Horace Goes Skiing
- Star Raiders II
- Beach Head
- Spy Hunter
- Krakatoa
- Spy Vs Spy
- How To Be A Complete Bas**rd
- Death Wish 3

Ranarama is a great game, also I like Dandy, which is done in a similar fashion.
But, Lunar Jetman ... Level 12 ??
Man, if I last 12 seconds, that is already an achievement. ;)
