Dispite having an xbox I decided the other day that I would play some of the old spectrum games that I have. Play.com sell spectrum and C64 games that work with your pc using an emulator or something.

 

The other night I decided to play MANIC MINOR and Striker.

 

What a great game Manic Minor was. Also DT decathlon.

 

If anyone is looking to relive there youth I recomend getting a spectrum Emulator from Play

As you said 20 minutes or the game to load but 1 question I never worked out the answer to is.

 

Which way did the lines go when the game was loading. Up or down.

 

My 12 year old newphew asked me if he could borrow my copy of striker to play on the pc. He has an xbox and PS2 as well and yet was more than happy to play a game that is about 15 years old.

For all the great graphics of today,the one thing that is lacking is no "new" gameplay.

 

We've seen it all before,look at the 360's launch,all sequels or ports of games,nothing new,just rehashes.

Last night I played a game called Weelie!!!!! Does anyone else remember this game.

 

Its where you are a motor bike and you have to get to the end by jumping over busses and picking up fuel, however if you go 2 quick you will crash and the same for 2 slow when you are jumping. When you get to the end you meet a goast bike and then have to race it back to the begining again

 

A good site to look on for spectrum game is called worldofspectrum.org. List all the old games out and you can also download them to play if you have the emulator.

Bought manic miner as a test and became completely hooked...played 24/7..dangerous mind controlling little shit that miner is!!!
