Have I killed the thread?

Some clues:
The publisher was first mentioned by Plato.
Made poor to ok budget games across the 8-bits (although I always quite liked this one).
They even made a game about the C5, but it was so difficult and frustrating you have to wonder if they were taking the pee. :D

Re: Screenshot challenge.

:shock: Space Invaders! Deffo looks more like a defender style game. It's multi-screen Space Invaders style, with defender radar. :D I suppose you could say it's a cross. Bit of both.

Yep

Re: Screenshot challenge.

The partial screenshot made it tough, but it's Reckless Rufus on the Speccy. Very different layout to the CPC version. Just as frustrating though I've no doubt.

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??
