    I believe so. Don't recall it on the Commadore.

    I was always an ST Fanboy. Desperately trying to resist the waves of nostalgia...

    I'm getting this just for the joystick - they were awesome sticks, and I think they were only surpassed by the original Atari stick.

    Oh the Dizzy game were the muts on the ol' 8bit systems. In fact anything by Codemasters. For under a 5 from the local newsagents

    If we're gonna move on to 16bit reminensing then I'm gonna club your ST to death with my Miggy and mention classic such as...

    Moonstone, Flashback, Pushover, Xenon and Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge (although I may have had that last one one the CPC now I come to think of it).

    If you want to talk in game music Xenon II on the Miggy was pretty good.

    Never had a Commodore 64, my parents got me a Spectrum ZX+ though, still ran on tapes and has awesome games like Paperboy, Outrun, Jet Fighter and my personal favourite "Colin the Cleaner" which was a logical-puzzle game.
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDo_rQsMU_0"]YouTube- Colin The Cleaner (Sinclair ZX Spectrum) (1987)[/ame]

    Sadly my Spectrum ZX+ stopped working when I decided to take it to pieces to find out how it worked........ still, I was only 4 at the time so I forgive myself

    Old games like these though just prove that you can have all the flashy 3D graphics you want, but they don't make a good game on their own.

    Who needs the PC to do this

    Much simpler - just plug it into your TV

    This is true. I used to also own an old Atari, the one with the wooden case and the sliding switches, the flicky reset switch. I'll have to try and find some pics. Alas though, it died and I then got a 7800.

    EDIT: CLICKY
