Yep Horace goes Skiing for me, thought Hungry Horace was boring and Horace and the Spiders wasnt great. Horace goes Skiing had a 'frogger' level and also of course the skiing one which was very good

Yep, skiing for me, too.

Also never had a Speccie, but my mate's dad bought one and we used to go round and play all of his games. Thought it was wicked at the time :D

This should have been set up as a poll!

Anyway, out of all 3 Horace games, the skiing one is definitely the best although the others are good too.

Hungry Horace. Horace Goes Skiing was okay.

Horace and the Spiders had a nice third section, but it was let down by the two preceding sections which were weaker. It's always nice to have variety to the gameplay, but it was too easy to lose lives on the first two stages. I'd often find myself with only one life for the final stage. Mr Wimpy and Eskimo Eddie had exactly the same problem.

Skiing probably, but I always loved the way Horace stamped on those spider webs. It seemed a really aggressive little bit of animation.
