I flipped for you* and went for Afterburner.

*Okay, I just replayed them on Emu to be sure and Afterburner was worse than I remember.

It's pretty bad. There's a game by Elite Software called "First Strike" which is SOOO much better than the official conversion.

First Strike rocked HARD! That was one of the best games that I was ever forced to buy by uber-fascists 'The Home Computer Club'.

Afterburner was/is a great Arcade game, but the C64 (con)version is really...yea...well...crap! So I voted for that one.
But what on earth is Gran Tourismo doin' here?!?!?

It's here because it is nothing more than a digitised car mag, and about as much fun as having pins stuck in your eyes, it is absolutely censored !!

Indeed it did... it was written by the same two guys who did the unbelievably brilliant C64 conversion of Buggy Boy. I wonder what ever happened to them...?

(as said two games are the only ones I know they did)
