    Can anyone else remember some of the first computer games in the 1980's on the Sinclair Spectrum I think, my wife rembers playing "Jet Set "Willy, "Manic Miner" and "Chuckie Egg" and "Chequred Flag". Are any of these available on PC now?

    Oh! Spectrum :(
    On ZX81 I remember "3d defender" and one with a dragon in in a maze (that's a description - not a game title)

    I can! ;)

    You should be able to find ports of those games quite easily on the net. I used to have Manic Miner on my PC at work for those quiet periods!
