Expensive hobby collecting these now!
Will have to reduce Hopper from £130 down to 40-68 as that's what last few went for on eBay.
I have Hopper but the box ain't that great from 1992 :(

Re: Most Loathed Acorn Electron Games...

can't believe Kane is there, I cained that to death on the elk, it changes to screen2, where you shot people that pop out from barns (similar to Gunsmoke) so thought was actually better than the shooting birds on screen1 8)
