Does admitting to playing Thomas the Tank Engine not make you sad then...? Cool, i loved that game. =-)

Street Hawk on the Spectrum is underrated. I know everyone says it's pish, but I played it for ages.

This is a Sectrum question, as I am a Spectrum fan, and wanted to hear from other Spectrum fans.

I was never really a C64 fan, but by all means, post your own C64 question on the forum :)

There is no bias, as I stated quite clearly on the Topic Title that it was a SPECCY question

ANYWAY

Thomas The Tank Engine wasn't a huge favourite of mine on the Spectrum, but I did enjoy playing it.

They made an Eastenders game?

What was that like? What did you have to do?

I'm curious...

The eastenders game was garbage , you had a selection of awful mini games such as chopping weeds , serving a drink in the vic or doing the laundry for Pauline etc

Paulines dirty laundry?

Not sure I like the sound of that!

Pat Butcher's maybe :lol:

Doesn't sound the most game enthralling then!

Though I might try and emulate from somewhere just to check it out for fun!

I really liked the Doctor Who game Dalek Attack. Not a bad conversion for the poor little speccy...

I also seem to remember 'The Fall Guy' being pretty good.... I may be wrong on this one though.
