A New ZX Spectrum Vega+ update, Sort Of

Starting a campaign update with an apology never bodes well for its backers and the latest update from Retro Computers is no exception.

Left Behind – New Game Released for the ZX Spectrum

It’s always nice to see that our beloved computers and games consoles are still receiving no software after 30 years, and this time, it’s the ZX Spectum that has a new game.

Further Trouble in Vega+
