Are you sure these aren't entries for this year's CSSCGC competition? :lol:

After playing the games on offer, I decided on Blackjack.

1. Blackjack
2. The Journey
3. The Baron

Despite the name of the company I certainly won't be tempted to play any of them again in a hurry. :?

I'm looking forwards to polls on Alpah Omega/The Powerhouse, Macsen and the companies that published Harry Price's efforts (Strobe, Sparklers and Tynesoft) :D

I hate it when these polls for obcure software houses end in a tie. Sometimes it means doing the poll again between the jointly top placed games, but since we have an additional proportional top-three voting system in the comments, we can usually go by that to determine the outright winner.

Anyway, purely from the phpBB poll, it's Blackjack and The Journey which are jointly top.

Joint second place goes to Dungeons Of Doom and Godzilla And The Martians.

Okay, to determine the actual winner, we go to the proportionals, and only two people bothered with this, submitting an exactly identical top three. Which means we have...

Blackjack 6
The Journey 4
The Baron 2

Blackjack is therefore the overall winner of this poll!

Sorry it was an obscure one, on a software house early on in the Speccy's commercial life, but hey, as I peruse the pages of Crash issue 1 for more brands, we'll have to expect this for a while!

Well done to those who expressed a view. I bailed out on trying them. I know you 'shouldn't judge a book by its cover', but none of the titles looked fun to me.
