10 6 MUGSY           Melbourne H.  1 73  6

Back in the bygone days, the top ten chart
was  home  to  many  a  classic game, this
chart  being no exception. Sabre Wulf made
a nest for itself on the top of the charts
for three months at the end of 1984, but a
hot  new  contender for the gold medal was
Daley   Thompson,  who  would  soon  reign
supreme.   Further   down   the  list  are
appearances  from Monty Mole, in his first
incarnation,  as  well as the ever-popular
Jet Set Willy. Those of you worrying about
the  low  mark  for Lords of Midnight, the
score was actually 10/10 ie, 100%!


TOP TEN SELLING SPECTRUM GAMES
November 1987

TM LM Name        Company        HCP CR IS
1  - EXOLON       Hewson           1 90 43
2  - ROAD RUNNER  US Gold          2 73 43
3  - GAME OVER    Imagine          3 55 44

7  2 ENDURO RACER Activision       2 92 40

9  4 SIX PAK      Hit Pak          4 == ==
10 9 LEADERBOARD  Access-US Gold   9 80 39

Three   new  entries  take  over  the  top
positions  of  the chart, with Exolon, the
first  game  from Raf Cecco, coming out on
top.  A  good  chart for US Gold, who take
three  out  of  the five positions, with a
surprise    abscence   of   Ocean   games,
especially with the run up to Christmas.


TOP TEN SELLING SPECTRUM GAMES
November 1989

TM LM Name             Company   HCP CR IS
==========================================
1  - RICK DANGEROUS    Rainbird   1
2  - NEW ZEALAND STORY Ocean      2
3  - LICENCE TO KILL   Domark     3
4  - INDIANA JONES     US Gold    4
5  1 ROBOCOP           Ocean      1
6  4 FORGOTTEN WORLDS  US Gold    2
7  3 SILKWORM          Virgin     3
8  - APB               Tengen     8
9  2 DRAGON NINJA      Ocean      2
10 - BATMAN            Ocean      1

Every  so  often in the charts, especially
at the end of the eighties, there would be
chart  "clear-outs"  where  a  rush of new
entries  would  take over the top-ten. Nov
1989  was  an example of such a rush. Rick
Dangerous  storms to the top, breaking the
stranglehold  of  Robocop,  which had been
top  of  the  pile for six out of the last
seven  months.  But  the Ocean game wasn't
going  down quite yet - it would return to
number  one the following month. As usual,
most  of  the top ten is occupied by Ocean
and  US  Gold releases. Lower down, Batman
the Movie begins a laborious ascent of the
charts,  taking  some months to reach pole
position.
