Here it is, the entire ZX Spectrum games library of Activision's short-lived sports-based imprint Gamestar. Yes, just four games. This'll make sampling their efforts very easy, just put aside half an hour. And the 'top three' proportional voting covers 75% of the output!

Voting closes at about 11:10am UK time, Sunday 18th August...

I was excited when I saw the subjective view of the Atari St or Amiga version of GLF Championship Football and noticed that there was a Spectrum version listed. I wanted it very much to be good. Then, in emulation times, I finally could play it and... let's just say my vote goes to Barry McGuigan World Championship Boxing.

My vote to GBA Basketball. One of the great basketball games along with F. Martin Basket Master & WS Basketball.

As to the rest of games, I haven't played them enough to have a proper opinion.

Well, there we go.

A landslide win for Barry McGuigan World Championship Boxing, with 10 votes.

Joint second place is, well... GBA Championship Basketball and GFL Championship Football.
