Old Bug-Byte game originally:

I never got far, but had a blast with as much as I saw. These games were very spartan, but that just left more to the imagination.

* Phaser Patrol (SuperCharger/Arcadia)
* Star Voyager (Imagic)

Does Llamatron (Atari ST) count as budget? (It was only five quid.) If so, that's my vote for 16-bit!

I run a newsletter six times a year for my game player community and most issues have a little "just-for-fun" retro game spotlight. This month, since it's the upcoming 30th Anniversary of the Atar...
