STEEL JEEG - ZX Speccy game based on the 1970's Toei Animation of the same name.

Even more speccy heads up has been sent to us by Zbigniew "Saberman" Zieliński, as he's come across a game called STEEL JEEG for the ZX Spectrum. Unlike the previous game we mentioned which was a puzzle game, this one is an action game developed by Francesco Forte using Jonathan Cauldwell's Arcade Game Designer, which is also based on the 1970's Toei Animation of the same name.

The story goes in the animation that you play as Hiroshi Shiba who was mortally wounded and his father a scientist restores him to full health by power of a relic. The problem is, this relic from the ancient Jamatai Kingdom, has turned him into a cyborg and thus this is where the ZX Spectrum game gets its inspiration from.

Sadly even though it's an inspiration the game is very low key in terms of homebrew greatness. Yes it's fun blasting enemies in each of the many screens, but there is a distinct lack of detail, the enemies at times can overwhelm you and what's worse, swapping between each weapon and remembering what weapon is best to kill which enemy while they attack you, can be daunting to even the hardiest of gamer. On a positive note I like the idea behind the game and hope the developer improves it because it could be brilliant!
