The first game I played on the speccy

That formula one you got with the free tape.
My Dad brought us JetPac too. Addicted to
Ultimae games...
Though Jet Set Willy best describes my life.

Played Horace goes Ski'ing, and a Horace
Frogger clone on a friend's ZX81, wobbly
pack and all, that turned me on. Oh yeah
and that maze game...

Space Invaders was my first console game,
though I remember a sit down pub two
player one as the best.

Missile Command is my favourite, in terms of what
an idea to turn space invaders on its head, and
have to protect things rather than just destroy one
bases.

Attic Atak was my favourite until I came across
Doom Darksrevenge.
Not to forget Rebel Squad.

Bard's Tale was a classic.
Armageddon Man was too far above its time.

Last game I went wow at...
Castle Wolfenstein.....
What the perfect enemy; Blowing away Death's Head SS, and their
dogs.

How could I forget....
text adventure games that me and my mum played together :Smile3:

Yeh, I never could either... Should try it again sometime now I have
read the books, seen the TV show, and soon the film.
P.s. Anyone got a copy of the radio show to listen to?

Armageddon Man wasn't on the spectrum, but on the Amstrad. We
didn't have enough colours :Sad: Though how things have changed!
All one format these days pretty much....

What ... PS2? Or X-Box? or Windows x86? or maybe even Gamecube ...? or, god forbid, mac? Then what about GBA? or DS? or, shortly, PSP?

Im pretty sure there are more games playing platforms out there now than there ever have been. Admittedly, though, PS2 dominates all ...
