Be fair: it actually finished in first place, not second, because the highest-scoring entry was created by the competition's sponsor (Qube) and was therefore disqualified from winning the prize! Blue TIGAR is actually listed as 'joint first' in the table at SyntaxBomb.
However, it seems that there are only two good game programmers in our BBC BASIC world, David Williams and freeman69.
I think that's rather unfair too. Do you consider Dibley/Quirk or Vapiki or Unnamed Shooter (all from different programmers here) not "good" games, or are you not counting them because they were written some time ago?

You are right. Therefore, I have changed the title of this thread.

You are right again. Those BBC BASIC users are also good game programmers!
