Well it appears the Zoids made it through the poll unscathed. A new batch of candidates are above.

never played any of them - but the Captain America game has such a cheesemungus title it makes me want to learn more about it....

Well I thought Breakthru on the Speccy was ok so won't be voting for that. I've never played the others.

I say Cap & the Avengers. One of my favorite arcade games but such a shabby home port.

My bad, the format should read CPC. I’ll get it changed, apologies to whoever voted for it.

Eh ?

Thought that was terrible on the Speccy, was really looking forward to that game and it was dire. Such a shame as the arcade version is a classic

What can I say I managed to extract some enjoyment out of it. Maybe I was very bored :D

You'll be telling me next Jailbreak is good on the Speccy ! ;)

I'll give Breakthru another go, the speccy font on the menu page put me off (if memory serves me right), its not the worst game just it could have been soooo much better

I voted Breakthru because the Speccy version was so bad. Completed it on my first go and wrote a letter of complaint to US Gold about how bads it was. They didn't reply.

The C64 version was sh*t too - if this wins then perhaps it doesn't need to be specific to the CPC and feature all of the 8-bit versions as it would seem they were all arse??

I may be in the minority here but I cant see the point of the retro shamer article. I have over 7500 games to go through on my Mame cab and the majority of the games are rubbish. I'd much rather have those two pages devoted to a game I should be playing.

Just my two penneth.
