if it's obscure, how can everyone play and enjoy it? =-)

I always bang on about it, Turbo the Tortoise is a great game. Have a look at that in the WOS archive, great little platform game.

Y'see, i wouldn't have called that one obscure... if i had to list a couple, i'd say Chronos and Transmuter but, in the discussions i've had on WOS previously, those titles tend to get mentioned by other people too so they can't be particularly obscure...?

Mrs Mop on the speccy was a good game.

BMX Racers on the speccy was pretty cool as well.

Now that one really isn't obscure; at one point i think that BMX Racers was listed as the biggest seller over all formats at any price point!

Jason's Gem
Alchemist
Amaurote
Turmoil

Whether these could be classed as obscure or just unpopular I'm not sure :D

Vectron
Subterranean Stryker
Snowman
Thunderbirds
Olli & Lissa
Cavelon
Gilligans Gold
Juggernaut
Hero
Firelord
THRUSTA!!!!!
Jasper
Kong 2 (ocean)
Draconus

A lot of these are quite well known , but I would urge you to give them another go as I feel they didnt get the credit they deserved when released....(especially Kong 2 and Cavelon)

Antics is easily one of the top 10 games on the speccy and I always prattle on about it.....

If you havent played it ....play it...if you have played it before ....play it again.

Still remember how great Rocketman was, dunno if it's obscure but WOS doesn't have it.
