Spectrum games in the 1990s
« on: December 22, 2013, 08:58:38 AM »
One of Laird's posts in the Chase HQ thread linked to an interesting rip-off called Miami Cobra GT from 1991. It made me realise how little I know about the Spectrum in the 90s because by then I was following the consoles, so I'd like to hear your suggestions of games I should try for the Spectrum from 1991-1993.

What else from that time is worth playing?

Miami Cobra GT?  I had to check this out, so I pulled a video of the game.  It does look pretty good but I have to ask, are those mountains in the background?  If that's the case, this must be in a different Miami than the one I live in!   Florida has no mountains!  :21:

To answer your question though, Zeppelin released some really good stuff late on in the Speccy's life. Here are a few of their games that are worthy of attention:

Titanic Blinky Walkthrough, ZX Spectrum

Professional Go-Kart Simulator ZX Spectrum[/align:syh2k38a]
