Thank you Thomas.. It seems like you are the only one who got the Spectrum Allegro Joke..
Chris: The Spectrum was the first mass produced home computer in Britain. Made by a technological genius, but unfortunately he was also a business bufoon.
(If you want some proof of his skills, he also invented the worlds first portable TV (before LCD technology was available), the worlds first Digital display watch (LED's rather than LCD's) and other things, such as the first electric bikes/scooters (you can't call the C5 a car!)..
Anyway, the speccy (or spectrum):
It was out before the C64 and the atari/apple computers. It had 2 colour graphics, but each 8 x 8 character block could have it's own choice of 2 colours. The resolution was better than C64/Atari Computers because of the low colours too..
If you want to see some pics of the games, have a look at:
(you can tell it was a popular computer because this site has ingame screenshots from 749 games.. )
And to my mind, Matt Smith created one of the greatest ever games on it... yes I am a Jet Set Willy fan!
Sorry Matt, but.. bows down!
