The knowledge of this group and your generosity is more than appreciated. Unfortunately, being an American, I have to go the emulation route with my interest in the Spectrum, in that using the actual equipment here is both difficult to come by and difficult to adapt to our power settings etc.

But, all these excellent suggestions and my own limited research has helped immensely. There are many a close minded gamer out there that simply don't realize that for some games the ONLY platform for them is the Spectrum.

Thanks again.

Thanks for the link though. I'll grab a copy when he's back up and running again. I LOVE Video and Computer Game history books and the books we get here only touch on some of the great UK game programmers of the 80's and that stuff utterly fascinates me.

That's the best part about the emulation scene...being able to play all the great Commodore and Spectrum games not available in the US when I was a kid. :)

XENO!!!!

Brilliant pick-up-and-play action. Takes two minutes to learn, but you'll play it for weeks. It's also one of the best two player games ever.

Great link, i'd completely forgotten about Mined Out. :D
I've just released an Android version of this fantastic game, with the permission of the original author Ian Andrew, and it's available on Google Play and Amazon App Marketplace.

Chronos is excellent but Transmuter? Really? It's terrible!
Here, go with Chronos but have this one on me:
