I think I should play more Speccy games. I tend to just play ones I've done a thousand times before.

Think I'll give The Great Escape a go - never played it! Always meant to.

Ohh a hard one since the speccy was my first proper computer!

1. Chaos. It was sooo great a multiplayer game. My mate made a version with the elite loader we used to play when we were "at the library" *(his house) at school. I was more into putting stuff on disk since I had a +3.

2. Starglider 128k. Just excellent.

3. Dizzy. Probably the first most but 1,2,3 were equaly good.

4. Rebelstar 2.

5. Stonkers.

I am probably missing much of the later games and probably some classics but these stand out in my mind right now!
