The ZX Spectrum was a home computer, not a games console.  There were many many games written for the Speccy, but it was a computer, not a console.  As for the game itself I think its excellent.  Given the Speccy's limitations I think they did a superb job in getting the essence of the game onto it.  Yes it looks bare if compared to other versions but it has all that is really needed to play the game.  Sprites are excellently drawn and overall I am very impressed with this version.


Just a small note as someone seemed confused. You don't have to be the jeep or play the jeep. You cna play the helicopter in 1 player mode its just that the jeep is right there with you regardless of whether or not you are in 1 or 2 player mode.

Interesting large platformer.  Just a small point the game is Grell and Falla, not Fella.

+Ronnie Bradley Hi there. "Fella" is acceptable if you look at the World of Spectrum page: http://www.worldofspectrum.org/infoseekid.cgi?id=0009355 . The inlay image on that page also shows "Fella".

Given the modularity of SW, I am tempted to get this if only to combine it with the Fantasy Companion and have Shadowrun.

I do hope you feel better soon.  Whatever it is you are going through I hope you get it sorted.

As for the game, never feel guilty or obligated.  its not like you simply couldnt be bothered you were ill.  Never feel obligated if you are ill.

of course if you want the 5200 style games but don't want the 5200 just grab one of the Atari 8-bit computers as the games they had were essentially the ones for the 5200.

Always get annoyed when games from overseas use the UK flag and call it England.  Thankfully the Amiga version at least gets that part right.  Other than that its a bad bad game.

+ZEUSDAZ - THE UNEMULATED RETRO GAME CHANNEL It is a very good flag to be sure.  But the individual nation flags that make up the union flag are lovely in their own way as well.  Its just such a shame that the right wing extremists have hijacked the St George.

I agree in the main regarding drama.  I think where I have had a problem in the past is where certain people who I did block were arrogantly stating that theirs was the only way to do things and anyone doing anything other were wrong.  Like you I simply see it as different rather than wrong.

There are a couple of Facebook groups I've left.  One I left (can't remember the name of it) because the posters seemed to consider sexism as perfectly acceptable and I didn't want to be associated with that site.  I left the one-shot group because at that time I wasn't really ready to run a one-shot or had time to take part in one so I was surplus to requirements there.  I left the RPG brigade page because it was just getting so filled with D&D 5th edition posts which is understandable but I felt I wasn't getting anything out of it so I left.

But I agree better to block people than to leave unless you feel there is valid cause.

I owned an Amiga 500 back then and actually owned Mini Office and I enjoyed using it very much.  I was using it to write my game scenarios for my various RPGs and also used the database to catalogue my RPGs and wargames.  It was an excellent wee package.  Thanks for the stroll down memory lane :)
