    I'm a big fan of 8-bit home computers like the ZX Spectrum and Comomador 64 so I decided to make a game inspired by some of my favourite games from my childhood.

    Gameplay-wise It's a level-based platformer with an enthesis on exploration.

    To give it the right feel I decided to use the ZX spectrums colour palette.

    The game is mostly finished I just need to add sound effects and a bit more overall polish.

    Same here. Started to gaming on ZX Spectrum so I have only the warmest memories for this platform. You nailed the feel of the era, especially color-wise. To this day I remember ZX Spectrum couldn’t display a single color for each pixel, so there was a rule of 2 colors for 8x8 pixels which often resulted in flickering during animations, specifically when colliding with background graphics. But I digressed. Good luck with final touches on your game. Keep us in the loop, will you?

    Thanks, @psj3809 :)

    @macplash Yeah ZX Spectrum games had such a unique look, I think the limitations of the system really helped spark developers creativity.

    @Gwarmaxx iPad only, for now, unfortunately, due to how I developed the game its best suited to the iPads screens aspect ratio. I do plan on releasing it on PC and maybe Fire TV in the future though.

    @Makara Nou I don't have a release date set in stone but probably next month as long as I don't run into any major bugs.
