Next Sinclair ZX Spectrum Launched on Kickstarter

A brand-new Sinclair Spectrum home computer has been launched, just in time to celebrate the 35th birthday of the iconic original 48k British gaming classic. This latest and most promising homage to Sir Clive Sinclair’s classic ZX Spectrum+ has been dubbed the ‘Sinclair ZX Spectrum Next’ by new UK manufacturers SpecNext Ltd. The company has its […]

Top 5 ZX Spectrum Games

Well, to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the humble ZX Spectrum, I have decided to compile a list of my five favorite games. They will probably not be the ones most people would pick as I’m just weird. The games chosen are the ones I have poured the most hours into personally, so they may […]

Vega Plus

ZX Spectrum Vega+ Console Spotted in the Wild

The rarely-seen but often talked (or complained) about Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega+ was spotted in the wild at the weekend by a Retro Gaming Magazine contributor. The controversial console, which has been subject to extended production delays and much legal wrangling since company directors fell out in a major split last year was seen – […]

Trouble in Vega+

Retro Computers Limited had some success with the ZX Spectrum Vega, which was an emulated machine in a ZX Spectrum style case with a directional pad and four keys. The machine came with several games–over 1,000 according to the press release–but you could also add games by putting them on to a SD card. Some […]

Bandit Gaming: Dragon’s Lair Laserdisc Ported to Commodore 64

The Commodore 64 is a computer that is close to my heart as a gamer.  I had other computers prior to it, I also had gaming consoles around but none were as cool as the C64.  From playing Alternate Reality: The Dungeon to playing Temple of Apshai and Sword of Fargaol on it, I had […]

New Game- Zombi Terror Brings The Walking Dead Adventuring to Classic Computers

The Walking Dead is an interesting hit for A&E Television, a station that is kind of new to the zombie genre.  On one hand it is completely outside of their comfort zone for content and on the other it fits right in with the current motif of action shows.  The team at Kabuto Factory are […]

Bandit Gaming- Dragon’s Lair Running on Sinclair ZX81

Alright, homebrew coders are getting scary with some of these projects they are creating.  Sure, Jim Bagley may not be your normal definition of a homebrew coder since he used to work for Ocean Software.  He got Dragon’s Lair running on a Sinclair ZX81 at the recent Retro Computer Museum Valentine’s Event 2015 show.  How […]

New Game: Battle Tank 3D Released for the ZX Spectrum

The ZX Spectrum has been getting quite a bit of love from homebrew developers lately.  Take Battle Tank 3D for example which is basically a 3rd person take on the classic Battlezone game.  Gabriele Amore has taken the daunting task of making something original on the Spectrum (think just how hard that is) and came […]

New Game: Pandemic Brings Gauntlet Style Dual Stick Shooting to the Sinclair ZX81

Gauntlet style shooters are not all that new, they have been around since before Gauntlet but Atari’s classic was the first to take hold, and keep it.  Pandemic is an overhead shooter that is similar to that classic arcade game but it is for the Sinclair ZX81, a computer that hit retail shelves in 1981, […]

New Game: Slightly Magic Returns on Desktops, Consoles and Mobile Devices

Retro games are our bread and butter around here at Retro Gaming Magazine and new ones are sometimes harder to find than rooster teeth. Here lately though, information on new games is picking up and the games are interesting, not just drivel being pushed. One such interesting project is a reboot of Simply Magic, a […]
