I always thought License to Kill on the Spectrum was one of the better Bond 8-bit adaptations.

Domark chucked out a fair amount of cack for the C64 but my fav was a really good conversion of All Points Bulletin

F1 for Megadrive.

At the time, it was amazing. My pal and I used to take turns to co-drive (rally style) and shout which left or right turn was coming next, just so the driver didn't have to take his eyes off the track. We got really good with this system and won everything in the game. Happy days.
Thoughts and prayers.

I loved playing Friday The 13th on the Amstrad CPC 464. The variety of the soundtracks as you roamed around with an axe! Plus at the end of the tape was a competition that you had to put the game tape into a Hi-FI and identify 10 sound effects and if you sent the enclosed postcard back to Domark, you could potenitally win a t-shirt. The joys of 80s competitions!

The only Domark title I owned back then was Super Space Invaders, the PC version. So I'll go with that :)

Eureka! as it's the only Domark game that I can remember ever playing.

Domark had very few decent games- loads of average ones though.

But top of the list for me would be Split Personalities (C64). Smashing game!


Close runner up to fave game by them would be the excellent Rampart - multi-player heaven :D


Castle Master was pretty good and would have been fantastic if the C64 could do faster 3d!

Trivial Pursuit - this was the only game which resulted in the C64 getting promoted to the big telly in the living room so that the whole family could play.

Other than that, I spent some time on Klax and Licence to Kill although I wouldn't call them firm favourites.

Licence To Kill on C64 was superb (looked great, played great ergo was great).

Also loved Amiga The Spy Who Loved Me.

I know Domark distributed them but they'll always be Incentive games to me.
