Xenon-1 for the Oric-1.
A classy little shooter that riffed on several big arcade titles including standard alien shooting, avoiding meteors, docking for fuel and battle the mothership levels.
Still very playable though I've lost my edge.

Kokotoni Wilf for the Speccy. I'm very proud of that one. Don't ask me about my first LP though, I'll not be as proud.

Chip's Challenge for my +2, remember saving uo for it and certainly wasn't dissapointed :D , at least not until it was released on a budget label. :(

Yie Ar Kung Fu on the Speccy at the age of 4. I received pocket money for the first time which was two pounds and it was the best two pounds I spent on my first purchased game. :D

Orbitron by Mastertronic on the C64. It was boxing day and I'd suffered the whole of Christmas day without any games for my nice new C64! Imigine the shock when I loaded it up!!

Galaxian on the C16 was the game that made me want a computer. I saw it at a mates and then bullied my parents until they bought me the computer and game.

I was a late gamer, in 1984 I purchased a VCS which included Phoenix. At the same time I purchased Ms.Pac-Man, Super Cobra and Enduro.
No video game crash in Germany, as the total for the above was DM1000.00 (GBP350.00)

Retro Gamer issue 7: Matthew Smith, on questioned which is the better 8-bit computer, Speccy or C-64:
'The Atari 800 was the superior machine'.

Hunchback on the Spectrum. Even now the thought of playing that game brings me out in a sweat.
