ZX Spectrum BASIC Jam - Create a game in Sinclair BASIC to celebrate the birth of the ZX Spectrum

Throughout the years we've tried to feature as many retro inspired game jams as possible, from the Speccy Jam to the very latest GBJam. Each of these gave people around the world the opportunity to create any game they wish, as long as it fits the specific system criteria set by the competition creators. As such thanks to the organiser Gazzapper and a heads up by Gary Plowman (ZX Spectrum Games Code Club book), today's game jam called 'ZX Spectrum BASIC Jam', is in celebration of the birthday of the ZX Spectrum (35), Dartmouth BASIC (53), and the birth of the new ZX Spectrum Next.

Submission opens in 9 days from June 1st 2017 at 12:00 AM to June 13th 2017 at 11:59 PM, and gives the coder the opportunity to create games in Sinclair BASIC just they did all those years ago. But as ever, there are rules to follow games must be made in BASIC - No machine code, aimed between 100 and 500 lines of code, 3 categories, and tools must be used with real Sinclair machines or emulators (Spectaculator, Marvin, ZX Spin, FUSE (Unix))
