ZX Spectrum Fans revelling in the 30th Anniversary Celebrations of the ZX Spectrum's launch can now enjoy their favourite Spectrum games on iPad and iPhone. Today (23 April) Sir Clive Sinclair released the humble Speccy onto the World. With a nostalgic lump in my throat I remember reading the original 8 bit gaming mags "Crash" and Sinclair User. So I'm sure that you'll be as excited as me to find that Elite Systems has released a bumper pack of the 100 greatest Spectrum games for iOS.

How to find Spectrum Games for iPad and iPhone
 If you’re looking for the definitive ZX Spectrum app, to which new games are added every other month or so, then search for “ZX” at the iTunes App Store and then select either ‘ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection’ (for iPhone/Touch) or ‘ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection HD’ (for iPad).

  1. Well I still has all my Spectrum stuff left and over 800 games to it. one 48k still working 100% and some other has the keyboard broken.
    Did play some on it for about 2 years ago.
    Maybe time to dust it off again.
    But the true fact is that none emulator do work good. Often is the sound is wrong or the color.
