@Phaelax: That Barbarian thing is awesome!
Loved the decapitation, the hollow sound of the head bouncing, the spray of blood while he sinks through his knees and then that lizard/troll thing coming to drag the body and even kick the head.
It couldn't have been more gruesome in that day and age, hehehehe. Incredible sense of dark, bloody humor these people had.
Had so many combo's for that that time, like overhead shop, the roll, defend, head chop etc.
I remember I got a casing with a poster of a Barbarian look-a-like dude and an absolutely gorgeously looking, barely dressed girl with it( was too shy to pin it to the wall hehehe)
And too many other nice games mentioned here.
Still good to look back and remember stuff from the ZX81(nephew lend me for while), Aquarius, C16, C64, MSX(friend had one) and Amiga days:
