  1. In order to satisfy my lust for Centipede I checked out the ZX Spectrum (Timex 2068) version on tape. Got a load error but managed to get it running nonetheless. It's may not be a legal port but it was produced and brought out on tape commercially back in the day. It is partly written in basic but the ZX was quite a fast machine when it came to basic so that doesn't have to be a drawback - even with arcade games. And this version really plays well and feels like the 'original'.
  2. Another Hewson game played on the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 and the Amstrad CPC: Anarchy a great shmup / puzzle game that is surprisingly addictive and is very playable even today.
  3. 'Spectrecular' A small series on my favorite games on the ZX Spectrum by Clive Sinclair. A z80 powered machine with a rubber keyboard, games loaded from compact casettes which could be found in a lot of kid's bedrooms in the early 80's. It was either this machine or a Commodore 64 back in those days. Although Amstrad CPC and MSX were also very popular. Acorn Electron and the BBC were also well known systems back in the day and European multiformat games-magazines often featured screenshots of gamed for PC, C64, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and the BBC. The emphasis was on home computers and not so much consoles. Games on consoles often were far mor expensive than games on the Speccy or the other home computer systems back in the day. I hope you like this first episode of the first part in this series on some of my favorite spectrum games and games that I re-discover on the Speccy. But also games I see for the first time. I plan on doing this for more of my old home computer systems like the C64, Vic-20 and MSX. So stay tuned! 🙂
  4. 'Spectreculator' - episode 2 '5 more shmups' This time I am taking a look at Exolon Flying shark Highway Encounter Ikari Warriors Rtype

    ZX Spectrum Gemini Wing vs The Arcade (SD) (SD)

    Mark Plays.... Beamrider (ZX Spectrum)

    Playing yet another port of this game - did a couple of other videos on the game on various other systems - but this is quite different from the rest in quite a few ways. Check out the video and see what I think of it and how I fared.
  7. A very nice shmup published by Faster Than Light on the Spectrum (also ported to the Amstrad CPC and C64 home computers) in 1986. Thanks to Mat Howlett for pointing this game out to me.
  8. More Tea, Vicar? Great shooter on the ZX Spectrum with a 128k and a separate 48k release sporting a different 4th level. The 128k version has advanced sound. I am using a Javascript Emulator to play this game on my PC as I couldn't find a working copy of the game to load into my Speccy. If you want to play it online? Here you go: http://torinak.com/qaop#!moreteavicar It is actually possible to save a snapshot from within the emulator and that actually does work in on my spectrum. But alas I already made this video using the emulator itself. 😛 Thanks to Vectrex Roli for mentioning this game to me! Intro tune by Synthmonkey aka ZombieAndy1979 aka Andy C
  9. In this video I check out a ZX Spectrum port of a Videopac/Odyssey 2 game called Attack of the Timelord / Terrahawks. It's a fun shooter that I demonstrated a while ago in one of my videos. Only just discovered that a Spectrum port exists. You can find more information about it here: http://www.indieretronews.com/2014/07/terrahawks-videopac-homebrew-release.html
  10. Bob Harris created the original Killer Bees arcade games in 1983 and this has been ported over to the ZX Spectrum by World of Spectrum forum member gazj82 and it has been done so to quite a high standard. Kudos for creating this game Gazj82! The game has been released online for free in .TAP format - ready for any ZX Spectrum emulator or the compactflash ready DivIDE device. Go check it out! This video (jumped to 1:19) shows me playing the original game on the videopac machine https://youtu.be/OYYRIijy-UI?t=1m19s
