Re: Best Type-In Progs by Machine

I can recall some basic racer and shooters, plus a great strategy title called Shadows of Long Forest. For spectrum 48k.

The screens has good use of UDGs and fair amount of dreaded data statements!

The graphics windows where well designed and I think u can download it still from world of spectrum.

Best Type-In Progs by Machine

Recall the best magazine type-ins you spent hours lovingly typing in...

Then recall :

a) did it work?
b) was it any good?
c) did you want to hit your keyboard!?

Re: Idea For a Feature

Best reader submitted type-in games (by micro) with the code if available.
I was always weary of spending hours typing in code in case the game didn't run or in case the game was rubbish!

Zx spectrum, zx81, BBC, c64 etc

Has to be the first time I played Gauntlet with friends! Amazing four player cabinet with excellent playability and the Grim reaper traps where always fun to unleash on your friends!
