The best Speccy game by Temptation Software: discussion

Post by PeteProdge »

Temptation Software, then. No, I've never heard of them either, but they were around in the early years and they cropped up as I flicked through the pages of the first edition of Crash, so here we are.

Some of their output is quite cerebral - strategy, management, card games and adventures. Anyway, here's what I believe is the full list of their ZX Spectrum games...

Admiral Graf Spee
Baron
Blackjack
Challenge
Dungeons Of Doom
Fruit Machine
Godzilla And The Martians
Higher-Lower
Journey, The
Las Vegas
Master-Code Deluxe

Hope I've got it right, so we can start a week-long poll this time next week...

Me too. I've always been afraid of this moment! :mrgreen:

Well, a good excuse to try some of them, anyway!

Mmm, I'm afraid nobody knows that company nor the games :oops:

Let's draw straws for the winner!

I vote for Godzilla and the Martians.
With a title like that it's got to be good, right?
Right?

Admiral Graf Spee is one I remember as I always thought it had a weird name, though I never actually played it.

Just been reading a few reviews about The Journey. A text adventure in BASIC and machine code, from the reviews it sounds like a painfully slow experience but the game characters are apparently quite independent and most mags have suggested it's worth a try. Not sure I would've paid full price though...

Nope, not heard of any of them.

I’d better get playing them 👍

I might have played the Journey, and if its the game i'm remembering, its good. Will need to see the voting thread and pics to remind me. I often rely on the screenshots these days :)

I don't have anything cool to put here, so i'll just be off now to see a priest with yeast stuck between his teeth and his friend called Keith who's a hairpiece thief...
