Play my shite games! First is Granny Parade! Not sure what the story is here - I wrote down some instructions when I finished coding (took about an hour! Been too long since I touched the ol Speccy Basic) but I lost them. Click the screenie for z80 file for your ZX Spectrum emulator!

Right, that should take you 8 seconds to get sick of. I couldn't work out the BASIC compiler so it's just a little slow, right?

Next, you lucky people, is the contemporary classic Star Destroyer! Click the cover "scan" for z80 file:

The different machine and game mentioned along the side there is a joke - we had trouble with this before. I KNOW there's no 1541 on the Speccy. Yes, I KNOW it's not funny.

Anyway, have a screenie of this exciting masterpiece:

So there you go, my shit 80s games straight from Cascade 50, j0!

# A blatantly missed opportunity for a cross-over game.

Look Around You is fucking excellent, I was pissing myself laughing watching the first series.

I'm going to try to work out how to do a bit of animation at the weekend, if I don't get drunk instead.

# I love Look Around You.

Maybe they can use this. I can't see the point of making a high-res flash version.
