Looking forward to this app, but I have to say I haven't heard of any of these games

Retarded creatures and caverns? Lol! I never played any of these I wonder if they'd be good for a newcomer?

Never heard of these titles. I hoped in more interesting (and known) titles. I'll wait for vol.2

Wow, talk about retro night.

I'll wait for impressions on this one - have never played a ZX Spectrum let alone an emulator of one so have completely no background / nostalgic value with this one...

I never had a Spectrum, but Speccy! was one of the first (and most usable) emulators I ever used, way back on the Atari ST, so I developed a real soft spot for Sir Clive's little machine.

That said, I've never heard of a single one of these titles, and while not particularly surprising, I still played a huge amount of Spectrum games and still never came across these. Frankly, if you're going to do a graphic/text adventure pack, you need to add titles like Tir Na Nog, Bored of the Rings, Fairlight, etc.

Even so I might give this a go, as I'm a sucker for this stuff anyway you offer it.

I'd get it just because it's an emulator, but none of those games look any good. :/
