Thread: ID this Spectrum(?) game - London Underground?

    Default ID this Spectrum(?) game - London Underground?

    A very vague memory. It was one of the games where you moved a character from location to location, find an object in one screen then use it in a different screen.

    What I remember is that every location had a name that was a pun on a London Underground station, or maybe a district or street in London. Examples - Turn 'Em Green (Turnham Green) and Handsden (Neasden)

    I played it probably on a Spectrum, maybe a BBC Micro.

    I don't think it's either of those. It's certainly not a text game. Werewolves doesn't look familiar, but it's a similar kind of gameplay. It has 8-bit graphics, you moved your character around the screen, you could exit a screen left or right (maybe also top or bottom) to go to a different screen.

    Every screen had a caption with the name of the location. And they were all London-based puns. Another one I've remembered - Shepherd's Tree, for Shepherd's Bush.

    Could it be "Give My Regards to Broad Street"?

    That was all about travelling around the London Underground and collecting objects.

    I don't think that's it. Thanks, though.
