Welcome to Speccy
your nostalgic link to the world of the ZX Spectrum
Although basic, the Sinclair ZX Spectrum was the first
machine to really take off, and over time a huge number
of games were written for it. This site enables you
to relive those wondrous days of colour clash and tape
loading errors, by letting you download emulators, games
and other Spectrum related material.
The site includes short reviews of around 130
of my favourite games of old (Bubble Bobble, Head
over Heels, Manic Miner etc) - I have deliberately
tried to place only the best and most nostalgic
games on the site. These games can all be downloaded
and played with minimal fuss - surf to the Emulators
page to get started.
If you believe there are any other games which
should be included in the list, then please e-mail
me and I will try to put them on.
The site also houses a number of PC remakes of classic
Spectrum games, such as Skool Daze (Klass of 99), Jet
Set Willy, Manic Miner, etc. The Retro
section includes full details of these games and
others that are in the process of being remade. Please
note the retro games do not need an emulator to run.
Furthermore, you can pit your wits against other Spectrum
game players in the Hi-Score
section, or get that little bit of help you need
on a game by visiting the ever expanding Maps
The guestbook can be used to make any suggestions for
the site, plea for help on a title, or to simply leave
