DOOM PIT - Exclusive physical release has been announced for the speccy


Ah Clive Townsend what a very talented developer he is, creator of the brilliant Saboteur! series of which many of us love still to this day. Sadly there was one game in his line up he never released and that was Death Pit; a game advertised a lot by Durell, completed, but was never considered good enough for release even though some of the routines did end up in that game Saboteur. Still even though the development version was found in 2007, we at least have ' Doom Pit ' to look forward to. A brand new game recently announced as an exclusive physical edition to the official sequel for Clive Townsend's previously unreleased Death Pit, bundled together in a great package by Monument Microgames!

The games just keep on coming, as after already mentioning The Last Ninja (1) possibly coming to the ZX Spectrum, we are here to shout out that the C64 version of 'Mandroid' is being remade as ' Droid Buster ' for the ZX Spectrum via the ZX-Dev-MIA-Remakes competition. According to the developer of this remake, Mandroid was originally going to come to the ZX Spectrum as Cyborg but with it being never released, the developer is remaking the game in his own image, both the graphics and mechanics.

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis Special Edition Demo 2.0 released!


Dungeon crawlers are not the only genre I'm a huge fan of, as if I showed my adventure game collection on the shelf gleaming with The Secret of Monkey Island, Quest for Glory, Kings Quest or even Indiana Jones that would prove I also have a soft spot for the Adventure genre too. Thankfully it seems others have a spot for games such as Indiana Jones, as just moments ago Patrik Spacek announced the release of the Indiana Jones Fate of Atlantis Special Edition Demo 2.0!

The Last Ninja - Is System 3's classic game coming to the ZX Spectrum?


In the late 80's System 3 released one of the most incredible 8-bit games of all time, cited by many as a highly innovative, groundbreaking title that put you in control of the ninja Armakuni on his journey to the palace of the evil shogun Kunitoki to assassinate him, avenge his clan, and retrieve the sacred scrolls. That game was none other than ' The Last Ninja ', a highly successful game for its time which as of today has re-appeared in our inbox but instead as a possible tease for an upcoming unofficial ZX remake.
