Finished but not officially released, there's a page at GTW64 about it...

Some "interesting" choices so far heh... I'll have a think on what to deliver for a top ten in due course... and no, it won't be quite the same list as the one used in the C64 collecting article...
Lie with passion and be forever damned...
