Today’s 8-bit wars is my first ever attempt at doing one of these videos and it’s for my old favorite Monty on the Run. This was one of the first games I got with my Amstrad way back in 1986 and I played it to death. It wasn’t until a few years later that I saw the Commodore 64 and Spectrum version and relised just how different the game felt on the other systems.
Unfortunately when I recorded this, I didn’t realise that the order of machines should be Spectrum, Amstrad and Commodore 64 so in this episode you’ll see Amstrad followed by Commodore and then finally Spectrum. My error has now been corrected by a several day stint in the Asylum’s solitary confinement!
So which system will win. Will the fondness I have for the Amstrad version let it prevail over the Spectrum and Commodore 64? Watch the video to find out…
