Hobgoblin II (BBC Micro / Acorn Electron)

My second game was a sequel to Hobgoblin, and in a startlingly original move I called it "Hobgoblin 2". It was actually quite a bit better, with ladders to climb, and a Gradius-style weapon selection system.

No logo

I used some of the screen memory for extra graphics, so it had to lose the huge logo at the top of the screen. Luckily I was able to black out the affected area, so it wasn't filled with "garbage" as seen on a number of late-era games on the Electron.
