The best classic Speccy game beginning with M: discussion

Post by PeteProdge » Mon Jun 04, 2018 6:47 am

Not gonna be around for 10am, so let's get this out of the way...

Marauder by Hewson
Marble Madness by Melbourne House
Marsport by Gargoyle
Match Day by Ocean
Match Day II by Ocean
Mercenary by Novagen
Metal Army by Players
Micronaut One by Nexus Productions
Midnight Resistance by Ocean
Mikie by Imagine
Minder by DK'Tronics
Monty Is Innocent by Gremlin
Monty On The Run by Gremlin
Movie by Imagine
Mugsy by Melbourne House
Myth by System 3

Those are the games I've come up with. I suppose I could dig deeper to get one extra title. Something for you lot to get manic, but maybe it's just too minor a hit?

I kind of feel sorry for the games that have no chance in this poll. Maziacs was quite a fun game, and Moon Alert was pretty good if you could get past the awful flickering. I heard Master of Magic isn't too bad either.

That's an interesting point actually, should the Bug Byte and Software Projects versions be listed as separate games? Then we can find out whether impossible triangles beat those up and down threshing things in the Warehouse. Plus it might give the other games more of a fighting chance!

EDIT: Wow, I never realised until just now that those Warehouse sprites are supposed to be rotating. I always thought that they were just extending up and down. Mind blown...

Match Point - A classic. Maybe the best tennis games for the Spectrum
Mr. Weems and the She Vampyres - a funny Gauntlet game
Mag Max - Am I the only one who love this game?

Could 'Myth' be removed from the list please, it's proper title is "History in the making: (myth)".

Same for "Innocent monty" and "Resistance: midnight".

No competitions here, a game that defines Spectrum, so MM all the way... :)

Can we vote right now ?
