TOP TEN SELLING SPECTRUM GAMES
February 1985

TM LM Name                Company      HCP
==========================================
1  - UNDERWURLDE          Ultimate       1
2  1 DALEY THOMPSONS DEC  Ocean          1
3  - EUREKA               Domark         3
4  - KNIGHTLORE           Ultimate       1
5  - TIR NA NOG           Gargoyle       5
6  - COMBAT LYNX          Durell         6
7  - PYJAMARAMA           Mikro-Gen      7
8  - AVALON               Hewson         8
9  - TRAVEL WITH TRASHMAN New Generation 5
10 - BATTLE CARS          Games Workshop10

A  very unusual 1985 Chart-clearout sees 9
new entries into the top ten, not least of
which  are  the  two  Sabre  Wulf sequels,
which  appear at both Number 1 and 4. Next
month would see Knight Lore take over from
Underwurlde  at  the top as people rush to
complete  the  trilogy. The second game in
the  Wally  quintet (although the first of
the  familiar arcade adventure type-games)
leaps  in  at  Number 7. As is commonplace
with 1984/5 charts, a lot of classic games
are  listed,  including the massive seller
Daley  Thompson, as well as Tir Na Nog and
Combat Lynx.

TOP TEN SELLING SPECTRUM GAMES
February 1988

TM LM Name                   Company   HCP
==========================================
1  - GAME SET AND MATCH      Ocean       1
2  - SOLID GOLD              Ocean       2
3  1 RENEGADE                Imagine     1
4  - WORLD CLASS LEADERBOARD US Gold     4
5  - THUNDERCATS             Elite       5
6  - 10 PACK                 Gremlin     6
7  2 INDIANA JONES           US Gold     2
8  - LIVE AMMO               Ocean       8
9  - GUNSHIP                 Microprose  9
10 - STAR WARS               Domark      7

A   double-debut   by   two   compilations
shoulders the Renegade out of the Top Spot
meaning that Game Set and Match can become
one  of  the surprisingly few compilations
to  reach the Number 1 position. Generally
an  unimpressive top ten, though, with few
games of note.

TOP TEN SELLING SPECTRUM GAMES
February 1993

TM LM Name                   Company   HCP
==========================================
1  1  RAINBOW ISLANDS        Hit Squad   1
2  2  SPELLBOUND DIZZY       Codemasters 2
3  6  DIZZY DOWN THE RAPIDS  Codemasters 3
4  10 BUBBLE BOBBLE          Hit Squad   2
5  5  BUBBLE DIZZY           Codemasters 3
6  4  FIRST DIVISION MANAGER Codemasters 4
7  18 DIZZY PRINCE YOLKFOLK  Codemasters 2
8  -  CRYSTAL KINGDOM DIZZY  Codemasters 3
9  17 FUN SCHOOL 2, 6-8      Hit Squad   9
10 -  DIZZYS EXCELLENT ADV   Codemasters 1

Top  Tens  consisting  entirely  of  Dizzy
games and Re-releases were run-of-the mill
by  1993,  but  the  ovoid  one  makes his
presence  felt  more  than  usual  in this
months  chart,  taking  6  of  the  top 10
positions.  We  must glance down to Number
12   in   the  chart  to  find  a  non-Hit
Squad/Codemasters  game! The highest entry
in the chart is the first Full-Price Dizzy
adventure,  which  explains its relatively
low  debut  point.  Bub  and Bob also hold
their   own  in  the  chart,  taking  Pole
Position  for  yet  another month in their
half-year  run,  as  well  as moving up to
Number  4  with  the  prequel  to  Rainbow
Islands.
