This is too difficult!

Played Jetpac quite a lot - felt very 'arcady' for the time! Sabre Wulf looked great & played well.
Had to vote for Knight Lore though, it was so impressive at the time, took the Speccy in a new direction...still play it!

Hmm, out of all the C64 Ultimate games you could have chosen, you went and chose Staff of Karnath!

You should have chosen Entombed! That game was brilliant - and far superior to the rather good Staff of K........................


So out of all the above I will vote S.O.K and imagine it's Entombed :roll:

I'm going to go with Knightlore although Jetpac is so close it made it a difficult decision. Jetpac was (and still is) a fantastic shooter but for sheer immersiveness and hours of fun it gave then Knightlore just edges it out. However, Alien 8 also came pretty damn close.

Simple yet effective I have it on tape normal and silver inlay along with the ROM.
Just noticed this - are you sure you have the silver inlay of the spectrum version of trans am , be nice if you do ! (for you). :)
Respect I thought one of the Sirclives would notice this... sadly the silver inlays ones I have are Cookie, PSSST and Jetpac. :wink:
I was ready to make you a silly offer !! :P

Jetpac... It was the 1st computer game i ever played and the only Ultimate game i was any good at. I did like Underwurlde a lot but it was just sooo hard!

I'm gonna vote for Jetpac as I never enjoyed the 3D isometric games they made, in fact I hated them for some reason. Jetpac was cool though.
