I'd have to say Captain Planet on the Amiga.
I loved it when I originally played it (Cartoon Classics pack 8) ), but given my waryness concerning licenses nowadays, I'll prolly find it's crap now. :?

Too late for me. I've already revisited most of my old favourites and been disappointed by many. Only a handful of true classics retain their playability.

The Detective Game and Cops 'n Robbers on C64. I thought they were great at the time... I was but a lad though!

You're right. Chuckie Egg was a very playable game,and after a recent revisit,I found it retained all of it's playability.

I used to love Turtles Tournament Fighters on the SNES. It was good at the time but I bet it's terrible now. :(

Draconus on the Speccy. I didn't exactly fear going back to it, so I did. It was really really awful. Which is odd because I remember it being utterly brilliant the first time round. This second time was around '94, the first time must have '88 and the emulator was on my a1200. Disillusioned, I shunned retro for 10 years in favour of a 3DO. That was clever too. (not) :oops:

Another game was international soccer on the c64. However i had played ISS by Konami on the snes by this stage so that could have muddied the water

Elite on the Speccy.

I loved the game so much (AFTER I obtained the docking computer). When I revisited it wasn't anywhere near as smooth or fast as I remembered. I ended up spending ages get the Red Squirrel Archimedes emulator running to play the (apparently) definitive version (but it randomly froze up ruining the game)
