Could it be Bug Eyes?
Sorry no. It had a name like Commander something...

I wrote an American Football quiz game for my Computer Studies GCSE in '87, so can I choose that?

Repton without a doubt. I played it till my eyes bled. Which was a tad uncomfortable and upset my grandparents

Geordie Racer. It was a tie in with a BBC Schools programme I played when I was about 7. It was probably shod, but I loved it. Playing games instead of doing real work for the win.

Either Exile or Chuckie Egg for me. The BBC was also home to the best version of Airwolf too!

D'you know, I think that's the one I was referring to in my post on the first page! :D

Now to find an emulator that's easy to run... Hmm, I wonder who could recommend me one....? :wink:

Planetoid. It made the lessons in our freezing cold, converted outside toilet computer room almost bearable during the winter of 1983/4.

Blimey. This is a long time ago. I wonder if anybody remembered Through the Dragon's Eye?

As a young child, I loved playing 'Cat & Mouse' game on the BBC computer at school made by Mirco Power, one of the most profilic software developers for the BBC Mirco. This game is one of the long forgotten games and is basically about a cat chasing the mouse in each room you must complete and the game was programmed in black and white colours.

Doctor Who and the Mines of Terror. It's actually a great (but tough) game and I'll also bet few people have ever even heard of it.
