[Picks of the Month] October 2017

Hello guys,

Here’s the second entry of this column, a resume of what I bought last month.

This has been the Speccy month. I’ve tried to win some interesting auctions but the main problem is that the home of the Speccy games is the UK and quite often the shipping cost is unaffordable just to buy some cheap cassettes (less than 2€ each). However I managed to get something interesting, especially my very first Spectrum game, probably the first game I’ve ever played, Daley Thompson’s Decathlon.

Other great entries are the first two installment of the Zelda franchise, both for the NES, The Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.

Here are the new entries of October:


  • Gyromite
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • The Legend of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
  • Othello
  • Robocop
  • Silent Service
  • Tiger Heli


  • Frogger
  • Ultraman

ZX Spectrum:

  • Cassette 50
  • Daley Thompson’s Decathlon (review)
  • Decision Maker
  • Dizzy Panic
  • Frank Bruno’s Boxing
  • Gauntlet
  • Legend of Kage
  • Kwik Snax
  • Magicland Dizzy
  • Match Day

  • They Sold A Million (Beach Head – Daley Thompson’s Decathlon – Jet Set Willy – Sabre Wulf)
  • They Sold A Million 3 (Fighter Pilot – Ghostbusters – Rambo)

I hope you’ll enjoy what you see!
