Just finished Toejam & Earl on the Megadrive and just downloaded the Street Fighter II collection app onto my ipod touch so will give that a bash next.

I had a go with Alien Trilogy on PS1 but I keep sucking...can't even finish the fourth mission on first level. Aliens move fast but the player is very slow, especially when turning 180°.

... Horrible, horrible game, I'm actually amused by how bad it is. God knows what I'm going to do with it now.
Waaaa?! Defender of the crown is awesome. You are clearly wrong :P

P47 Thunderbolt on the amiga. A lot tougher than the cpc version and probably not as good considering the difference in power.

California Games on the NES.

I prefer the SMS version though.

I wouldn't worry. It's an awful game.

Seriously? I loved that game! It was a bit samey, but it really nailed the tension and horror factor. Though maybe it hasn't stood the test of time particularly well.

The Sega Mega Drive collection is a better way to play it...the XBLA versions are altered (no Marilyn posters, Spider-Men different colors).

I have two versions of Revenge of Shinobi--the original version and version 1.02...though I didn't get 1.02 by choice.

A few old Speccy games:

Splat! - awesome game
WEC Le Mans - this has the smoothest and speediest feel of any Spectrum driving game that I've played
Manic Miner
Robocop
Batman: The Movie - The Spectrum version of this game doesn't get mentioned much but I prefer it to the Amiga's
