Dynamite Dan vs Dynamite Dan II (ZX) - Which Is The Better Game?

Welcome to the September 2016 edition of Which Is Best?
Last month I placed three Amiga top down racers, Nitro, Super Cars II and Overlander.
Overlander finished way in 3rd place but what a fight it was between Nitro an SCII, after SCII stormed ahead in the first week, Nitro started to gain It's following and started to pull back.
After carefully counting the votes on the main youtube vid and the forums, the end result was NITRO had won this competition by just 1 vote!,...what a great head to head that proved, I really thought the way it was going SCII was going to win but it was pipped at the post in the end by Nitro.
Final results:
Nitro = 17 votes, Super Cars II = 16 votes, Overlander = 4 votes.

This time round I place the two Dynamite Dan games head to head on the ZX Spectrum, these were two classic and beautifully written platform games with comical elements and crazy whacky creatures, all beautifully animated.
I've upload approx 6mins of each game, I also will apologise for the buzzing during the DDII footage, this was recorded before I had my 128k+1 audio modified and I had a real shitty scart lead at the time, now I have an incredible scart lead and all my games are buzz free
Anyway, so which is the best game?!,...once again only you will decide that
Happy voting!!!
Please note: I have used the 128k sound version for Dan II.

All the best, Zeus.

They only appear to unregistered viewers, if you're logged in to EAB they shouldn't interfere with the thread at all except right at the bottom of the page.

I rather prefer MontyMole games..

I vote for DynamiteDan2,... but both parts are too hardcore games for me.

btw, I love that NITRO had own previous poll. NITRO is a winner!!

Ah old classic. Only played Dynamite Dan 1 on C64.
Btw, if you ever wondered what the game would have looked liked if the screen scrolled instead of flipped, check out this PC remake ;-*)

Scrolling takes some getting used to, but other than that... it's OK. I like it.

Ok mate, DD2 for you, only 10 days left to vote, Dan1 is ahead.
Yep I'm kinda glad Nitro won the previous vote too, I was rooting for it to win and it did

It's all over, after counting all the votes Dynamite Dan 1 won with 13 votes whilst Dan II got 11, well done Dan 1!

Thanks for the votes, the new edition of Which Is Best is now up, happy voting on it :-)

Good choice ;-)
Dynamite Dan I is the *Only* game my old man ever played on a computer back in the day (1985?) when my C128 was hooked up to the family TV so I have some nostalgic preference for it.
