Games for the ZX Spectrum

Games and Applications for the ZX Spectrum:

The Spectrum family enjoys a very large software library of more than 23,000 titles[5] which is still increasing. While most of these are games, the library is very diverse, including programming language implementations, databases (e.g. VU-File[6]), word processors (e.g. Tasword II[7]), spreadsheets (e.g. VU-Calc[6]), drawing and painting tools (e.g. OCP Art Studio[8]), and even 3D-modelling (e.g. VU-3D[9]) and archaeology software[10] amongst many other types.[11]

The hardware limitations of the Spectrum imposed a special level of creativity on video game designers, and so many Spectrum games are very creative and playable even by today’s standards.[12] The early Spectrum models’ great success as a games platform came in spite of its lack of built-in joystick ports, primitive sound generation, and colour support that was optimised for text display.[13]

ZX Spectrum for the Multiple Classic Computer

ArcadeRetroGaming is please to announce that it will support the ZX Spectrum

on the Multiple Classic Computer MCC-216.

It has started the work and we will post frequent updates about the progress of the FPGA Core development.

SINCLAIR ZX SPECTRUM
the good, old ‘speccy’

History[1,2,3,4]

In April 1982 a small British company, led by Sir Clive Sinclair, launched the ZX Spectrum computer and sparked a revolution.

The small, black computer with iconic rubber keys ignited the home computer age in the UK and beyond, led to an explosion in computer manufacturing and developed software programming talent that is still in evidence today.

The computer was the brainchild of British technology entrepreneur Sir Clive Sinclair who also, with the Sinclair Cambridge, developed one of the first cheap and slim pocket calculators in 1972.

The Spectrum was the third home computer to be released by Sinclair – following the ZX80 and ZX81 – but was the first aimed squarely at the home.

The machine came in two models – £125 for a 16KB machine and £175 for a 48KB machine, making it one of the first affordable machines.

The hardware designer was Richard Altwasser of Sinclair Research and the software was written by Steve Vickers on contract from Nine Tiles Ltd, the authors of Sinclair BASIC. Sinclair’s industrial designer Rick Dickinson was responsible for the machine’s outward appearance. Originally dubbed the ZX82, the machine was later renamed the “Spectrum” by Sinclair to highlight the machine’s colour display, compared to the black-and-white of its predecessors, the ZX80 and ZX81.
