Wizball - even now it's better than many contemporary games in terms of graphics, sound and playability,

Tough, tough question. There are so many enjoyable games. But I think I have to opt for Paradroid - slick, compulsive, inspired. Getting assaulted by 883's, 821's and 712's is one true frightening moment - RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! Pity there is only one repeated (BIG!) ship, though.

Last Ninja 2. The first one blew me away, but was too hard for all the wrong reasons. The second one was still challenging, but in a fairer way. It must have been good, because it was the first ever game that the ten year old me could be bothered to stick at and finish.

Buggy Boy, probably the most playable of all the versions out there.

My favourite c64 game would be Monty On The Run as it was classic, hard as nails, platforming that had an air of mystery to it, plus a mole on a jetpack? what's not to love! Auf Weidersehen Monty is a close second, a mole in a plane? what's not to love (again)!

I am of course a Speccy man at heart, but I did really enjoy some C64 games such as Hover Bovver, The Human Race and Talladega

Naming one is an ordeal :) I could say one between Power Drift and Turbo Charge since I love racers and Chris Butler's efforts are amazing, but I'll go with Emlyn Hughes International Soccer. Endless hours of play, experimenting with ball trajectories and goalkeepers' flaws... it remains one of the best footies to this day.

Winter Games, just for the Hot Dog, I have managed to score a perfect ten again, just like old times! and the music was uber cool too.

I have to say "California Games" for the different type of games. But "The Last Ninja" was awesome. I can't choose.

Most definitely BRUCE LEE. It's not only one of my earliest C64 game experiences but also one of the greatest, too. I love the wonderful Asia-style graphics!

Very difficult to pick one. Harder to pick than a broken nose. I'm trying to think back to games nights, what was popular with a few around the tv...and then what I would spend playing myself and lose track of time...
In terms of playability, addictiveness...the one game that pops into the head for me, despite being out on most machines of the time: Lode Runner.

The Way Of The Exploding Fist for the sheer impact that seeing this game for the first time had on me. Needless to say I left the computer shop £9.99 lighter.
