Romantic games

Post by Juan F. Ramirez » Fri Feb 14, 2020 7:39 am

Because it's St. Valentine's day we must make a list of Spectrum games with romantic heroes:

- Mikie (the most obvious)
- BC Quest for Tyres
- Hunchback
- Ghosts 'n' Goblins

Any others?

Well, I suppose I have to mention Zx Larry, my remake of the famous Larry game.

Although calling it "romantic", just like in other cases mentioned here, is risky at best ;)

Hopefully it was obvious I was being facetious. Even in the early 80s that game seemed *very* questionable.

Another questionable relationship was "Back To Skool" where it appeared that Eric was just using Hayley in other to have her do some of his lines.

Ant Attack might have slipped into sexist tropes with its 'rescue the helpless heroine' plot had it not had the option to play as the female rescuing the bloke. "My Hero! Take me away from all this".

Errm, no, I think this game should be included in a different thread topic, not this...
