Remember This?

Can you guess this old game from just one screenshot?

I’ll update this post with the answer at 5pm today if no one has guessed before then. Or if you do guess it before then, feel free to share your memories of a classic game.

Good luck!


    Rebelstar on the good old Speccie!

    Rebelstar! That's going back...

    I know it doesn't look like much but Rebelstar and Rebelstar 2 were awesome fun. I hated the spectrum generally but my mate had this game and we played it endlessly. Until another friend got it on his Amstrad and we didn't have to put up with the single colour sprites anymore.

    I think it's Rebelstar for the ZX Spectrum.

    reminiscent of CGA colours though, what was the fascination with cyan and magenta back in the day?

      Colours on these old systems seem fairly arbitrary, but the Speccy colours are a combination of CYMK, RGB primary and white plus halfbrite. The primary nature of the colours makes them fairly distinct on B&W TVs.

      The c64 palette is a bit less saturated and some colours are indistinct on a mono monitor.
