Spectrum Memories Part 8
Posted Apr 16, 2011 20:40 (Apr 16, 2011 20:40)
I bought a +2 in March 1990 and for a while I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. My 48k+ model had started to become increasingly tetchy as had its cassette player with games either not loading properly or crashing at a crucial stage. A [...]

Shooters were the genre of choice for many a Speccy owners. You could keep your platformers, strategy titles and racing games; we just wanted to shoot, shoot and shoot!From the very beginning videogames have featured a heavy shooting aspect. The Spe [...]

Most early Spectrum games came in the regular single cassette box.  Well, why wouldn't they? The box did it's job, held the cassette and an instructions inlay that could be folded several times and still fit comfortably within the confines of the [...]
