Re: Jonathan Who?

So you haven't played any of his games, but you're more than ready to write them all off as crap? How delightful.

The Egghead sequels are more like a cross between the Monty Mole and Dizzy series, and alongside those Albatrossity, GameX and Slubberdegullion are as good as any top-selling title from the 80s. At least, when run on a real Spectrum.

Also, what publisher do you think is going to run up tape duplication for Spectrum games in 2018? They'd have to be completely barking mad.

Oh, wait, https://cronosoft.fwscart.com/Spectrum/cat5357733_4119462.aspx

It's a disaster that there are no 80s games on this device, and indeed plenty of more recent games were offered up to RCL after the row over permissions was stirred up again earlier this year, but none of those have appeared.
