A twenty one year-old remake of a thirty eight year-old game… John Dow‘s Pssst PC conversion was originally released in 2000 for MS-DOS and it’s not a bad effort, with decent enough graphics and responsive controls. The game was later ported to work in Windows, but there is a problem with that (see below).
Cute, colourful, and a lot of fun, Alfred Chicken is a scrolling platform game developed by Twilight and published by Mindscape in 1993.
The game starts out easy, but by the third level you’ll be tested by more challenging puzzles and trickery. Alfred Chicken is not quite a kid’s game, even if it looks like one.
Or – to give the game its full title: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – a legendary, open-world RPG with a dragon-riding, fantasy horror setting, and a chilly, Nordic, snowy feel to the landscapes.
The Curse of Sherwood is a 1987 action/adventure game from the prolific programmer/designer Derek Brewster.
Derek Brewster‘s Jasper is a decent platform game from the early days of the ZX Spectrum. It was published by Micromega in 1984.

The Birds and the Bees is a simple, side-scrolling collect ’em up, with you playing a bee, out collecting pollen from nearby flowers. It was released by Bug-Byte Software on the ZX Spectrum in 1983.
Featuring a cute robot (called Robbie) whose job it is to keep the insects away from the plants.
