I enjoyed the under rated Pitfighter on the Amiga. They did a pretty good conversion complete with a cool intro with digitised graphics and quality sound.

Looking at the list of titles on Wikipedia, I can safely say I've only played Codename Mat II and Trivial Pursuit on the CPC.

Out of those listed there, I'd have to say that Desert Strike (listed as a Domark title, but doesn't say for what) got most of my time logged up.

I actually enjoyed A view to a kill on the speccy, was a bit of a sucker for multipart games.

Had it on Now Games 3, which also included Codename Mat II. A not too shabby game by Domark either.

Return of the Jedi on the Amstrad CPC. Great artwork on the inlay covers, fantastic graphics and gameplay (especially compared to the other 8-bit formats) and unbelievably good cover of the John Williams score.

I would say Gladiator on the ZX Spectrum has got to be my favourite Domark game. :) It's cool when you can get to choose what defence items and weapons you want from a huge variety of shields, swords, spears, nets etc. The one on one fight scenes are great, especially in 2 player mode where you can play against a friend or relative. The 128K version of Gladiator is the best one worth checking out, though the 48K version is good as well which was the first version I played back in the day.

I probably shouldn't be admitting to this, but I actually quite liked Pit Fighter on the Megadrive. Ok ok... you may now commence the stoning.

Domark - never has a company made games of such vastly differing quality. With Domark you really didn't know what you were going to get, from the abysmal View To a Kill and Friday 13th to the massively addictive Championship Manager and Split Personalities.

I'd have to make Splt Personailities my choice , because it epitomises the term 'timeless gaming'. Regardless of how technology has moved on, SP is comparable in terms of graphics and playability to anything out there on the market today,

I'd say the Speccy versions of All Points Bulletin, Badlands, Lords Of Midnight and Licence to Kill are my favourite games from Domark.

I hate it when I'm late to the game... :(
Just watched the issue 96 preview, so I guess it's kinda too late for my answer, is it?

Ah, what the heck, the best Domark game is Nam 1965-1975. A great strategy game.
Shadowlands is a close second.
