My faves (as well as Imogen - one of the VERY few games I ever completed, IIRC!) in no particular order ...

BUMBLE BEE Dunno why I liked this ... just a Pac-Man style thing
CYBERTRON MISSION
GHOULS Great music/sounds but a bit too much pixel-perfect jumping
MR.EE Wonderful game
STOCK CAR Good two player fun
SWOOP Again, nothing amazing special, but I just liked playing it. Lots.
CASTLE QUEST Never finished it ... maybe one day. V. popular at school

Thanks (and thanks for the uploads, dunno if anything rare in there, but good to see!)

Agree with all the above. Swoop was one of the first games I bought in the Program Power days. Castle Quest whilst being excellent has the most dissapointing and unobvious ending possible. You could wander for hours if you don't know exactly where you have to throw a certain object to finish!

Believe you me, I did wander (and WONDER!) for hours! :lol:

I've seen plenty of write-ups and how-tos to finish the game but I avert my eyes. One day I WILL try again (when I have that magic day or six FREE!!!) :shock:
