The Hobbit 128K is mistitled "Hobbit 128" in the archive, so it doesn't show up if you search for "The Hobbit".

Enduro Racer (https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 96&id=1628) has the comment "motorbike racing", pretty irrelevant, seems a leftover from and early indexation attempt or an import from another source.

Similarly, BMX Simulator 2 is the budget re-release of Professional BMX Simulator from CodeMasters Plus. This version has 10 circuits compared to the 15 on the double tape release.

Comments from old WoS indicate that Professional BMX Simulator is an enhanced version of BMX Simulator. Is this information wrong? It's only the enhanced version of BMX Simulator 2, correct?

Also it says the "BMX Simulator" series titles are BMX Simulator, BMX Simulator 2, Professional BMX Simulator. Do you think it would be better to swap the order of the last 2 titles, or remove one of them from the series?

Yes, those comments are incorrect. The original BMX Simulator is a different game written by different people. Professional BMX Simulator/BMX Simulator 2 is by the Oliver Twins, which is why it's hosted here and the original isn't.

I'm not sure you can call Professional BMX an "enhanced" version of BMX 2, as it was released first. BMX 2 is a cut-down release of Professional BMX - other than the number of levels and the title, the games themselves are identical.

The series should just be BMX Simulator and Professional BMX. BMX Simulator 2 should be release #3 of Professional BMX.

The Famous Five (Spectrum Version)


Release date should be 1991 - two reviews are from June 1991 and one from August 1991. The Crash review from November 1990 is for the Sam Coupe version and should be moved on to that page.
