Best QL Games

Postby bwinkel67 » Wed Feb 05, 2020 7:06 am

I haven't played too many QL games in my time and I have seen some ZX Spectrum games on YouTube and they seem pretty cool. I used to have this 3D tank game in the 90's (Tanks maybe?), a vector graphics game that was not that great. Oh, and a Flight simulator as well. I also have Matchpoint and QL Chess which are pretty good graphically and play well.

Lately I downloaded the games pack for vDrive. Haven't gone through too many but I really like Spook. Not just because it's a fun game but because it's a really quality implementation on the QL. I thought Matchpoint was pretty good but Spook is just far and away the best I've seen so far.

So question is, what are some other quality games on the QL that rival other platforms in their implementation and design. I'm not generally asking for your favorite game because sometimes we love the simple ones, I know I do. Just a game that when you saw you thought wow, that's cool graphics and a great implementation that looks professional.

Put another way, if I show friends Matchpoint or QL Chess it doesn't really grab their attention but if I show them Spook, they light up and go "cool game."

That sounds like Qbits games, as seen here:

I liked Damon Chaplin's games, and Alan Pemberton's adventures - Voyage of the Beano is a real classic adventure with some lovely hand drawn graphics.

Starplod was also a nice take on the adventure game (icon controlled).

It depends whether you want arcade games or adventure games I guess :)
