The Grumpy Git: Retrocomputing and eBay

Well, here we are again at another Monday. The wondrous world of computing rolls on, getting forever more irritating by the minute. I once again have found something to complain about so here we go… We all like retrocomputing; the playing of old games bringing back hours of nostalgia, or hours of pain, depending on […]

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 […]

A New Hope for the ZX Spectrum Vega+

The development of the crowd-funded ZX Spectrum Vega+ has been, to say the least, troubled but recent updates from Retro Computers Ltd appear to give a new hope to its backers and to fans of the beloved 8-bit computer.

ZX Spectrum to Receive The Ooze Homebrew

We don’t often cover homebrew releases for the ZX Spectrum computer. One reason could be that we are primarily a North American based site (we have been working on expanding with new team members across the globe). Another is that we are careful about what we cover for various reasons–often a title is just not […]

Further Trouble in Vega+

I previously reported upon the problems that Retro Computers Ltd were having regarding the ZX Spectrum Vega+ handheld. Retro Computers Ltd had problems with this for months. They initially said to backers that they would be trying to get the machine out during the Summer of 2016. However, this timeline came and went. I reported […]

Feud Retrospective

One of the things about retro gaming is that you can sometimes look back at a title from your youth, and realise that actually nothing has ever quite bettered it. This is true of Mastertronic’s classic game Feud, developed by The Pickford Brothers. Released way back in 1987, it’s still a very much loved part […]

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 […]

Metal Man Remixed for ZX Spectrum Now Available as Free Download

Metal Man Remixed was initially developed for the ZX Spectrum as one of the reward options in the Kickstarter campaign for the ZX Spectrum: a visual compendium art book in 2015. The game’s developer, Oleg Origin, has now made the game available as a free download–so now you have no excuse to play this fantastic […]

Monty Mole and the Temple of Lost Souls Released on ZX Spectrum

Back in the 1980s heyday of the ZX Spectrum, Gremlin Graphics enjoyed huge success with a series of games featuring their Monty Mole character. The series has recently been resurrected with the release of Monty’s Honey Run in January 2017, and now its follow up, Monty Mole and the Temple of Lost Souls, is here.

Pietro Bros. New Mario Bros. Clone for the ZX Spectrum

While an official licensed Mario Bros. game did make it to the ZX Spectrum in 1987, it is generally considered to be a poor port of the 1983 arcade platformer by Nintendo. With that in mind, Christian M. Gonzalez has been working away for many months on his own version of the game and has […]
