SB Recommends BBC Micro Games
A personal computer, developed by Acorn, for the BBC's BBC Computer Literacy Project. It appeared in UK schools throughout the 80s, and 90s, much like Apple's computers did in the US. This made it a popular choice in homes, too. Until the, much cheaper, ZX Spectrum arrived.
Vamos: A difficult game to explain, but imagine Spindizzy without the exploration or Marble Madness crammed onto a single screen. Use slightly odd controls to get a generic object through mazes, against the clock. Weirdly addictive, good difficulty curve and awful / excellent music.
