The Speccies is a puzzlegame for the 48K Spectrum and it has 101 levels.

Read more - and download a copy - at my site, here: http://tardis.dk/wordpress/?page_id=1011



Also supports ULAPlus which makes it easier to play for people suffering from colour blindness.




Available both as an emulator file, but also as a limited run of physical cassettes.
I think there's still a couple of tapes (2-3) left for sale if you're intersted.



And last but not least - it just scored 85% in Retro Gamer Magazine.



Let me know what you think.

Glad you like it.

Btw, if you haven't already read it elsewhere: I've also written a postmortem on both games;

http://tardis.dk/wordpress/?page_id=1104

...a little light - and hopefully entertaining and insightful - look into the development of both games.  :36:
