While Sega never officially supported the ZX Spectrum that has not stopped fans from creating facsimiles of Alex Kidd. Axel K and the Lost Bills keeps the feel of Alex Kidd while bringing new adventures to fans in this 2D side scrolling action platformer.
Fighting against an evil finance minister (did I mention this is a U.K. platform?), Axel has to get back tax documents that were stolen. Normally this would be as simple as finding one bad guy and simply taking back the papers, this is a video game so you know it is going to quite a bit different. The papers are scattered across the land and need to be collected one by one by Axel (ahaha, there is the catch).
Axel K and the Lost Bills is available for free and can run on an emulator or on actual hardware.
