R-Type (ZX Spectrum)

R-Type for the ZX Spectrum might have sounded like an overtly ambitious arcade conversion, but it -shockingly- turned out quite fantastic. The graphics are some of the best the Speccy had seen, the gameplay is pacey and faithful to the original and it even comes in a lovely, relatively rare big box. It's lovely and you can grab it here. Seller ships only within Europe.


  1. This is a GREAT conversion, one of the few games that really pissed Commodore users. The box is wonderful and the price's great too, unfortunately my speccy is still under repair (and always will, if I don't get a membrane soon).

  2. Better yet grab a Spectrum + me thinks. The keyboard is almost decent and it even has a reset switch. Very handy that.
