In Topic: Anyone remember the ZX Spectrum?

01 November 2017 - 11:06 AM

I went back to the Spectrum this week to play Ghouls and Ghosts for my Halloween special. This is for the 128K version  of the computer, and you can see the diference in graphics and sound to Horace etc. Even with the extra capacity, it's something of a technological miracle that such a decent port of the game can be made. It's a pity that my skills are less miraculous however. Several hours of play brought me no further than the halfway mark....that's halfway through the first level!

What  about this one - Swimmer? It's a great little vertical scroller - avoid obstacles, avoid enemies...collect fruit. they don't make them like this anymore!

I remember clocking some beat em up where the characters use yo yos when I went through a similar phase. Now I just play the ones I like.


Spinmaster? Loved that gamed!


Yeah, that's the one. Also, random 80's arcade game that's worth mentioning is Vendetta. Just for the leather bound bosses that hump lamp posts alone.


leather bound lamppost hugging bosses!? That would never get past a game design comittee these days...more's the pity;-)

I bought Arms last weekend and had a ton of fun with it. So much so, I decided to make a very stupid video on it;-) I was using the pro controller as I wasn't feeling too energetic (it's an age thing!), but am hoping to have stored up enough energy to try motion controls this weekend. I may have to have a long lie down afterwards, though. 
The aforementioned very stupid video...feel free to ignore:-)

I enjoy Crossy Road too:) As soon as I get a bit more time - it'll probably be the weekend now - I'm going to try some of the Frogger updates - PS1/PS2.. I have low hopes, buut I'm itching to try them anyway!


Nice! Did you ever try Frogger 3D? I believe it was on the 3DS.


I've just checked out a video and I like the look of it -I'll put it on my wish-list:-)
