Ah, fine. My mistake then.

P.D: A downside I didn't anticipate when asking for a smaller screen margin is that now I need to redo most ZX Spectrum previews and titles... LOL

@Neville

Afteroids, Humphrey, and Shadow Dancer are also in. Each uses the TAP from its respective WoS page:
Afteroids: https://worldofspectrum.net/infoseekid.cgi?id=0000105
Humphrey: https://worldofspectrum.net/infoseekid.cgi?id=0002378
Shadow Dancer: https://worldofspectrum.net/infoseekid.cgi?id=0004421

Also, if it's not too much trouble, could you post requests as new posts instead of edits to old ones, so that I didn't just stumble on them by chance? ;j

Sure, I'll keep that in mind. I did notice you could miss those, but it wasn't that vital. Plus I could have reminded you later.

This time the list is small, but they all are interesting titles.

Afteroids & Humphrey are two Spanish games I didn't include earlier in my requests. Afteroids is an Asteroids clone where stages ocupy more than one screen. A pretty neat game, and it also has some speech (!) while it loads.

Humphrey is a puzzle game. As usual with Spanish games of the era, it is too damn hard, but a great game nevertheless. You need to guide an alien film star (!) while he paints his new mansion, but the place is also full of annoying fans.

And Shadow Dancer... Honestly, I don't know if the ZX version is any good, but we already had Shinobi, and now that FBN can run TAP files it was only fair to add its sequel.

EDIT: Can't believe I forgot to thank you for your work... you rule, man!

This time, would you consider adding...?

- Golden Axe

- Airborne Ranger

- Gunship

- Project Stealth Fighter

Can't believe they actually ported MicroProse's first games to the ZX. There are more, but these three should suffice, I think.

  • All games deserve to be emulated, more or less! :P

Today I only could think of a single game to request: Hostages, by Infogrames.

https://www.mobygames.com/game/zx-spectrum/hostage-rescue-mission

Perhaps more games from the same developer are worthy, but I'm not sure.

I've joined the forum as a fan of FBNeo and its predecessor. Its really good to see the gains that have been made in recent years with an ever expanding number of talented people joining the development team.

I'd like to make a request? Could Ranarama, the Hewson game, be added to the ZX Spectrum list? Its a pretty good title that was on a number of systems back in its day.

Added Hostages, Ranarama, and a few more Hewson's games: Zynaps, Uridium, Netherworld, Marauder, Kraal. Also threw in Action Force 2 and Action Reflex (apparently looking for some more action).
