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

My guess based on this is that JSW will be higher in the list... :)
Possibly.

Manic Miner is solid. Still playable, absolutely iconic visuals.

That level with the rays of light was a bit much though. It's not like Manic Miner needed to get harder at that point. But yeah, a really decent and tidy game. Not a personal fave but hard to dislike.
To be fair, it is the second to last screen, and you'd already made it past the pixel perfect timed jumps through The Warehouse by that point. Well, unless you were using the cheat code, I suppose, as that was how I first got to see the later screens.

Anyway, I guess it's downhill from here for the list. :)

Starquake did nothing for me.

I tend to see Starquake as a jazzed up Underwurlde. Not being constantly bounced around by the monsters is a big plus, and the additional game mechanics mostly add to the experience, even if it wasn't the most original idea at the time.

That's as opposed to Wizard's Lair, which is a jazzed up Atic Atac, but where most of the changes to the gameplay are for the worse.

I can see why people hate Underwurlde, and why they might go for Starquake instead.

Not me though. I'll always choose Underwurlde over Starquake, even though it's really annoying.

Starquake is good and has a similar quality to it that the Ultimate games have. I haven't played it much but I need to give it another go.
I would like to like Underwurlde more than I do. I'm sure it's a matter of mastering the control and getting used to bouncing around the screen. The game deserves another shot so I'll definitely go back to it.

I wonder if Underwurlde is further up on this list???
