TOP TEN SELLING SPECTRUM GAMES
April 1986

TM LM Name                 Company
==========================================
1  -  WINTER GAMES         US Gold
2  -  RAMBO                Ocean
3  1  COMMANDO             Elite
4  2  YIE AR KUNG FU       Imagine
5  -  SPELLBOUND           Mastertronic

8  -  TRANSFORMERS         Ocean
9  4  TOMAHAWK             Digital Integr.
10 7  THEY STOLE A MILLION Hit Squad

Commando  relinquishes  the  top spot to a
strangely  out of place Winter Games in an
April  chart.  The first game in the Rambo
series  also  makes  it's presence felt in
it's Number 2 entry position. Elite drops,
after  it's suprisingly low Number 5 entry
position   the   previous   month,  to  be
replaced  by  the  first  of  the familiar
"Windimation"    Magic    Knight    games,
Spellbound.

TOP TEN SELLING SPECTRUM GAMES
April 1990

TM LM Name                   Company
==========================================
1  1 GAZZAS SUPER SOCCER     Empire
2  3 CHASE HQ                Ocean
3  - SPACE HARRIER II        Grandslam
4  8 DOUBLE DRAGON II        Mastertronic
5  - ROBOCOP                 Ocean
6  6 BATMAN THE MOVIE        Ocean
7  - FOOTBALL MANAGER I & II Addictive
8  - THE WIZ                 Ocean
9  - WORLD CMPNSHIP BOXING
                     MANAGER Goliath
10 - GHOSTBUSTERS II         Ocean

Gazza mania was in full swing back in 1990
and  his  otherwise  unimpressive game was
sitting  safely  at  the top of the chart,
holding  off  such  classics  as Chase HQ.
Robocop  returns  to  the  chart  which it
called  it's  home  for the best part of 2
years!  As  is the norm for the early 90's
charts,   Ocean   took  most  of  the  top
placings,  although  this may have more to
do  with  the  fact that they had the best
Film/TV  licences  rather  than  the  best
games  (although  the  games  were usually
excellent.)

TOP TEN SELLING SPECTRUM GAMES
April 1991

TM LM Name                         Company
==========================================
1  1  T. M. HERO TURTLES        Mirrorsoft
2  2  ROBOCOP II                   Ocean
3  4  HOLLYWOOD COLLECTION         Ocean
4  5  SCI CHASE HQ 2               Ocean
5  6  NARC                         Ocean
6  10 GAZZA 2                      Empire
7  3  GOLDEN AXE                   Virgin
8  13 KICK OFF 2                   Anco
9  7  LOTUS ESPRIT TURBO CHALLENGE Gremlin
10 12 SUPER OFF ROAD RACER         Virgin

In  the  middle of their massive six month
run at number one, Turtle mania throws all
other  games  aside and manages to prevent
an  Ocean  stranglehold  on the top of the
chart.   Robocop  2,  the  sequel  to  the
massive  chart  topping  game  has  to  be
content  with  remaining  at  Number 2 for
another  month.  Driving  games seem to be
the  craze  this  month, with three of the
top ten falling into that genre.
