I am trying to think of a good game I played on my Spectrum. All I can think of is "The Sacred Armour of Antirad." Which is a game you can probably complete in literally 10 minutes. But I played the absolute shite out of. Over and over. I'm not crazy...~~



I still remember the text messege when you succeeded "YOU WIN YOUR RACE IS FREE PRESS FIRE TO PLAY AGAIN" Yep, no punctuation.

My first computer was a VIC-20, the precursor to the Commedore 64. With an eye watering 3.5K of memory. My fav on that was an up scrolling plane shooting thing that was utterly impossible. I only got to the second level twice.

In addition to Wizardry 6, I just started up an Ultima IV game as a paladin (fuck Dupre). Wow is it an easier start than mage. I can kick the shit out of anything that comes at me on the map, at least so far.
