Saboteur 2 - An enhanced 48k mod by thealfest for the ZX Spectrum!

Now here's a blast from the past and a game that I remember as being one of the best action-adventure games I had ever played on the Amstrad CPC 464. It's 'Saboteur II' developed by Clive Townsend and released by Durell Software in 1987, the same publishers behind the incredible dragon flying 'Thanatos'. This fine game was released for many platforms such as the CPC, ZX Spectrum and C64, and featured a female protagonist who must break into a high-security compound, fight off guards, avoid pumas and alter the course of a nuclear ballistic missile and then escape on a motorbike. 

But the news of today is this all time classic game of which we have featured countless times in the past, has recently been updated for the 48k ZX Spectrum with an enhanced mod by thealfest. As in the words of the video description "This updated mod for 2024 has bugfixes, adjustable speed, improved game balance, additional graphics, sounds and more. Original game by Clive Townsend ZX0 compression by Einar Saukas".

  1. This could be worth a look, I had the original on the c64 but the speed killed it for me...

  2. I beat the game only in 2019, and helping myself with videos, on the Steam version. One of the main flaws of the game was how slow it was compared to the first game, so that mod fixes a real problem.I also recommend the "modern version" you can find on pc and switch

  3. Much faster graphics code, so much better gameplay.
