This article is for those of you old enough to remember our good old friend the “Specky”. I thought I would compile a top games list in no particular order.
1. Saboteur 2 (without any doubt) one of the best (if not the best) games to be released on the Spectrum. Here is a vid of the famous motor bike getaway.
2. Jet Set Willy, this game was exceptionally hard, but was one of the largest games available at the times, very few people have ever finished this game.
3. Super Hang on, it was well worth waiting the 15 minutes it took to load this game. Everytime you thought maybe you would finish it, but I think it was impossible to finish
4. Horace goes skiing has to be the most legendary title of all times, here it is in full color for your viewing pleasure 🙂
5. Joe’s drink stand, sorry could not find any vids on this one 😦
6. Mad Martha, it was a shitty quest game, but it was kinda cool at the time
7. Ghost and Goblins, worth a mention because it came very close to its arcade counter part.
8. Bomb Jack
9. The Ulmighty Chequered Flag
10. The exceptional Tomahawk Helicopter Simulation
11. Back to Skool 1 and 2
12. gary lineker soccer special (no videos available)
13. Enduro Racer
14. Batty, the best pong game at the time
