    spectrum

    HI..

    Fancy a romantic memory trip?

    Who made the best spectrum games?

    had to be ULTIMATE?

    remember atic-atac and sabre-wolf...........to name a few..


    manic miner and psions flight sim were some of the others....hows about lords of midnight? i still havent found a more exciting sim game yet! " night has fallen and all your men are dead lmao!"


    i am talking about my mum queing for an hour at WHSMITHS for XMAS...............all they had was 48k spectrums stacked up behing the counter....chuckie egg...hmmmmm


    BTW this is before AMSTRAD got their grubby hands on the brand name, and trashed it...

    if it wasnt 48k, it wasnt worth having! lol...pffff 16k? hah!


    sort of point here is, all the games on the spectrum were classic originals...yet now machines are WAY advanced, why can people only devise the same old TAT?!

    If you have not already got 1, get a spectrum emulator and be amazed.....at the crap graphics, but the amazing gameplay!

    ooooohh remember elite? and remember loading the buggers? press play and hope for the best....learnt a good bit of BASIC on there though...

    ps the C64 was crap except for that grass cutting game!

    hehe



    edit? oh yes-spelling mistake
    Such is life.
