The Hobbit might suffer from the obvious problem: it's a license. Ditto for any Tolkien inspired game set in Middle-Earth itself, certainly anything based directly on his works.

Is a SAM emulator available, or can some of the ZX ones do it? Looks interesting as Doomdarks revenge is my most played speccy game.


Will post one later, assuming its correct
Legend of Eshan it is!

For an emulator, Google for Sim Coupe.

Your go. :)
