The 1987 Amstrad CPC conversion of Leaderboard was developed by Canvas – the same team who made the ZX Spectrum version. And – in truth – it’s definitely the worst version of Leaderboard available, falling massively short of the Commodore 64 original.
A version of the classic Access Software golf game, Leaderboard, was ported to Atari home computers by Kevin Homer in 1986.
The more fully-featured sequel to Leaderboard on the Spectrum is better than its predecessor, but not without its problems.
The ZX Spectrum conversion of the classic Commodore 64 game, Leaderboard, was coded by Roy Gibson and Ian Weatherburn, with graphics by Simon Butler, and was published by US Gold in 1987.
While it is playable enough it’s fair to say that it is probably the most bare-bones and basic conversion of this great golf game out there.
The 1987 follow-up to the classic Leaderboard, the Executive Edition features four new golf courses with new features such as bunkers and trees. It’s essentially the same great game as Leaderboard, with the same simple control system and simulation of ball movement.
The original Leaderboard was developed by Bruce and Roger Carver for the Commodore 64 and was published by Access Software in North America and US Gold in Europe. Leaderboard was the best-selling C64 game of 1986 in the UK.
