Insector Hecti in the Interchange. A great little action puzzle game where you have to rotate tiles to complete a maze, all the while being chased by annoying insects. It had a proper crunchy title screen tune and very memorable sound effects. I don't think it's very well known, but it's definitely worth a play. It was out on a bunch of other formats too, but I loved the C64 version I had as a kid.

EDIT: Just uploaded the title music to youtube - go have a listen :)

Wow.. that's like asking Who's your favourite parent.. damn.. I'll simply draw straws then and say Wonderboy. Actually can I instead just say which parent I like better?

Ouch, that's a hard question!! impossible even.

If forced to pick just one it would be Last Ninja 2, or maybe the original, but how can I ignore IK+, Elite, Giana Sisters, Bubble Bobble, Turrican 1 & 2, Laser Squad, Bruce Lee, Wizball etc ??????

Last Ninja is my final choice (i think)...............

Impossible Mission. Closely followed by Dropzone (are we arguing if that is a C= 64 game?).

Super Cycle I think. Still plays really well even today so for me that is my favourite title overall.

Yeah, trying to decide is like picking a favourite child. If I decide to not pick something that wasn't first on the C64, then I'm going to go for Impossible Mission...
