[size=140]World Of Spectrum forum member gazj82 has ported one of his all-time favourite games from the Phillips VideoPac (known as the Magnavox Odyssey 2 in the US) to the ZX Spectrum. He spent hours playing this as a kid and still has very fond memories of it, hence the port. The original game was written by Bob Harris in 1983 and published by Philips themselves. The original game is very fast paced, this version was produced using Jonathan Claudwell's AGD, and he hopes he has captured what made the original version so unique.[/size]

[size=140]You can read more about this games development in the thread (http://http) on World Of Spectrum and read more about the original game here (http://http). The game has been released for free for use with emulators or real hardware and a manual has also been produced, which he recommend you reads so you know how to play the game.

Wow, that looks pretty good.  Looks like programmers for this system have figured out how to get more juice out of it.
