Menace is probably my rarest original. It's the very first game I bought at a Dion store in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I've never seen this game anywhere else after that and it's mostly advertised in magazines as the Firebird re-release.
A few years ago I submitted it to WOS.

Eric & the Floaters [Sinclair Research, 1984]
(but already released the year before as Bomberman by Hudson Soft, I think)
Lately I'm always having a game or two at this simple but playable game, in the evening.

Today is 10 years since Chris Sievey passed away, so I will be playing The Biz.

Maybe today will be the day I get a reply from a record company and not die of a heart attack!

Yep, it's all there. I do have the original inlay scan still in BMP format (300 dpi) if someone with photoshop skills wants to beautify it.

Thanks

Today, after a while, I played my favorite Spectrum game again.
After all these years, she kept the same charm, polished, addictive, simply beautiful. :)

Camelot Warriors. I completed it back in the day, and now I'm trying to finish it again saving snapshots and checking the YT walkthrough, obvs., as it's bloody difficult. Currently in the second world:

Being a fan of Avalon/Dragontorc, I was very excited when I started seeing the adverts and previews for Pyracurse. Hewson at a strong period in their lifetime.

Ultimately I was a little disappointed when I played it - I just couldn't get anywhere.

Nice that you get to play as a dog though... :lol:
Same here. I was of the mistaken opionion that because it was released by the same company as Avalon & Dragontorc AND that it came in the same clam box (Why that made me think that I have no idea) that it would be written by the same people and be of the same quality. So I bought it. Never really got in to it either!
