ZX Destroyer - New Sinclair ZX Spectrum Homebrew

[size=140]ZX Destroyer for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum is a conversion of a very obscure arcade game that was released in 1980 by Spanish company Cidelsa, who can be considered as the first video game company in Spain. This very faithful translation was made for the El rincon del Spectrum coding competition 2014 and was programmed by Retro Bytes, who, like the arcade producers, also hail from Spain so remembered this game from their youth. They have released the game for free to use with real hardware or emulators.[/size]



[size=140]Destroyer is one of those shooters in which you have to overcome a series of enemy waves. But what distinguishes Destroyer from the other similar games of the way you attack the enemies, especially in regards to bullets that go beyond being simple straight shots move diagonally, and in the later stages the missile's trajectory changes midway. The game also features enemies that attack intelligently, almost reading your every move telepathically, and some huge and very inventive boss characters.[/size]

You really know how to introduce new games here! Excellent presentation :)

The game is quite hard but quite addictive too, it got the second position in the compo. This time the conversion was not the most precise, as the author took some freedom to change certain details of the game, some of them, like the graphics, were vastly improved. Worth a try!
