Going Retro

Posted in Gaming

Armed with drink and snacks, Dok and I spend the evening looking up old games and listening to the dulcet tones of ZX Spectrum loading noises. We also found some classic samples of in-game music

Remember when games had a seperate cassette with music you could listen to while playing the game? Seems odd that now that modern games often have their soundtrack released seperately.

I can safely say that the Spectrum was the one item that changed my life, from the commands in BASIC, I wrote simple programs (aged 8-9), I think these would later place me in the frame of mind to become a programmer in the future.

My tribute to the ZX as you may have noticed is a loading image (it’s very small) in the top left-hand corner of this site. I’ve had it there since I themed the site.
