The ZX Spectrum was 30 years old this week. I wasn’t fortunate enough to have had a ZX Spectrum myself as a child but enjoyed spending time on them with friends. As I remember, the ZX Spectrum was a reliable little computer and physically robust. I recall them being dropped a fair few times. What I remember best was the quaint (but annoying at the time) loading of games via a cassette recorder and tape cassette. The games themselves were simple but a wonder to behold in the early to mid-eighties. Here are a few I remember playing.
