    Just trying to get to grips with Extreme - going to review it on my site shortly so trying to figure it out.

    The graphics are very impressive I must say.

    Ah that would be Sinclair BASIC then! :smile: The best game ever on the good old Spectrum. Endless fun and challenges...

    Sounds interesting , any more details ? will it have match highlights ? actual player names etc .

    I had a go at a football management game (back in 95) , a hard job , i gave up with it unfinished and i could not get the transfers working , maybe ill have any bash some time.

    It doesn't do a lot at the moment. All you can do is pick a team from a list of 80 (4 leagues of 20 teams). The idea is to have hilights ala Football Manager mixed with a more in depth options like Football Director. I don't know how i'm going to do the hilights yet. I also like the way players energy decreases each game in Football Manager so I might implement something similar.

    Chubby Gristle, after being inspired to play it by Rebelstar Without A Cause's thread!

    Still good and still very difficult! :)

    I completed this recently. It took quite a few snapshot saves i'm afraid.

    One The Run, one of my old favourites.

    I had a quick go at Motorbike Madness to test a +2 about 20 mins ago. Terrible game. At least it was a quick test. I could have tested it with Head Over Heels and i'd have been there all night!

    Ditto, and something entirely top secret. I'd tell you what that was but I'd have to kill you afterwards.

    Stop the Express. I've always found it very addictive and funny. Recommended if you only can play in a short time.

    That's one of my favourite games. Very addictive.

    I've started working my way through the games in the YS top 100 that i've never played before, starting with Hyperaction. Very hard, maybe i should i read the instructions.

    Psycho City, by Players. I've never played this game much before. It seems interesting.

    A map would be a great help (Pavero, where are you? :smile:)

    Have been spending some time playing 'The Armageddon Man'. It's a good game but very hard, i always seem to cause two countries to fall out and launch nuclear strikes against each other.

    Spent the weekend playing a game i found in the achive called 'Chart Topper'. You play a manager of a struggling rock band trying to get to number 1. It's written in BASIC but isn't too bad (but not very realistic). The funny thing is when you go bust the program stops and you get the message 'Variable not found'.
    I like playing games about managing rock bands and movie studios (not many of them on the spectrum though!).

    Excellent, i'll have to try it. I played Star Maker for the 1st time recently. It's very simple but I couldn't stop playing it!

    The second part is also excellent, and it was moreover the inspiration for Risky Woods for the 16bit machines.

    Really? A 16bit game based on Captain Trueno? Most interesting. I will check the game out in a moment, on some machine. Thanks for the information.

    Indeed it's like a twin brother of "CT 2".
