Really, the best solution would be to have the character move in eight directions. It'd also have given the developers more options in how you can fend off enemies. Think about it -- this is a game where the only way to dodge an attack is to turn your back to it and walk away.
I was a commodore kid so my only experience was playing ultimate games on a friends amstrad CPC. Not sure how well they hold up or how tough they are. You could try the add the famous ones like Knightlore or Alien 8. There's a few other good non-ultimate isometric games such as Head over Heels.
Could we please take a break from isometric games though, I can't play another one after landstalker!

I could never get the hang of Zaxxon (not that I've played it much).
I do recall a kid in my primary school having a Zaxxon board game when I was in primary school and being super jealous (I did however get to have a few games of it with him. I can't remember much about it sadly...I was pretty young at the time)

Asides from some text adventures or supremely difficult platformers I don't think you will find many spectrum games that will last you more than a couple of days to play. I'd always recommend Saboteur though- any game in which you can play a Ninja that kills people with bricks...
