ZX Spectrum - 55 minutes of Speccy Galore including real time tape loading!

RetroGamerVX has challenged us to make Spectrum themed videos this week in honor of the ZX Spectrum's 30th birthday. Of course all I could do is comply to escape the wrath of my Evil Twin from the UK. Read more below...

His video can be found here:

Mind you this video uses real-time tape loading, hence the length and me waffling along.

My +3 sadly has seen better days. The RF out signal totally craps up after some usage. When the system heats up there are some major issues with the signal. The TV I am using is absolutely fine with other systems.

I need to get the Speccy repaired or resort to using the 48K or get another one. I try to show my favorite games here.

Boulderdash, TerraCresta, Hades Nebula, Monty Mole, Rtype are among them. I think I will revisit later this week with a proper more high production value video - or not - time is precious and life / work is throwing a lot of shifts my way yet again.

My other Spectrum videos:
