Im sure we've done one of these before, but this is to tie in with the Gary Bracey interview we're running.

What's your favourite Ocean game?

It's just got to be Wizball on the C64 for me, although Parallax is a pretty close second place.

Wizball, C64, followed by Super Turrican 2 for the SNES.

James Pond II: Robocod. It's festive, has loads of penguins in it, and he's potentially the tallest fish in the entire universe.

I always have fond memories of loading up The Simpsons: Bart Vs The Space Mutants on our Amiga 500 (we had the Cartoon Classics pack, so it was bundled with the machine along with Captain Planet, Lemmings and Deluxe Paint). The intro was brilliant! Really showed off the Amiga's capabilities! The game itself is fun, but very challenging. Even now, I still can't get past the shopping mall level!

Moon Alert is my choice... to me this was the first example of a home conversion (i.e. rip off) of an arcade game that really felt like the original.

Wizkid, one of the most imaginitive, creative and entertaining games ever - a worthy sequel to Wizball. Also proved that Ocean weren't just about movie and arcade licenses.

I can't remember if it was an Ocean Software game but Rambo III on the PC was one of the first videogames I played and it was amazingly hardcore in both difficulty and gore, priceless! However it was the original Worms (PC demo) that kept my brother and I from sleeping after countless hours of stellar multiplayer even with only 2 playable levels.
