Welcome to Speccy Magic, your nostalgic link to the world of the ZX Spectrum games machine!

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 section.

The guestbook can be used to make any suggestions for the site, plea for help on a title, or to simply leave a comment.

Finally, if you have any content that I can include on the site, such as game maps, pokes, hints & tips or links, then please e-mail me.

Happy surfing, and remember, Control+D to bookmark!
