Speccy Jam 2 has now finished - So many great retro games for free!


I've got a huge respect for developers of both indie and retro games, thus throughout the end of last month and into this month September, I've been keeping my keen eye on the retro developments during the Speccy Jam 2. A jam in which people from around the world came together to create brand new retro inspired games in the flavour of that 8-bit hit, the ZX Spectrum. Now the Speccy Jam 2 is over and winners yet to be decided, you can now play loads of fantastic retrotastic games that make you feel like you've gone back to the 1980's.


Overall there have been over 25 retro inspired games that have been developed in that ZX Spectrum style, from great games such as The Accolade by Juan J or Moon Unit Z by Lewis Lane. There's just so many awesome games to write about I'd be here all night. So without further ado, I'll list as many as I can in this very article so be prepared to play some ultimate games from the Speccy Jam 2!
