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

Guess the screen$

Post by akeley »

The ancient forum game, SC edition. Quick and dirty rules below, if this thread gets some traction we can tweak them further.

-we are guessing the names of ZX Spectrum games (1982-now )
-you can post a whole scr$ or just a part/detail, obviously it should be somewhat relative to the game's popularity
-if nobody guesses within 24 hrs the poster should start giving out some clues (year, genre, etc). This way we can have fun utilizing the wonders of ZXDB
-a person who guesses correctly posts the new scr$
-if a person guesses correctly but doesn't want to post a new scr$, they can say "pass", and then somebody else can take over
-one guess per post

Here's mine, have at it!

Fortunately, it was my favourite Battlezone clone. :)

OK, what's this? Probably it's not very hard.
