The YEAR IS 1982. Clive Sinclair is unveiling his new home computer, the ZX Spectrum, to an eagerly awaiting Britain. The computer is to revolutionize homes throughout the country as parents will be lapping up the machine to help their kids with homework and improve their education. Or so Mr Sinclair thinks.

In no time at all , the kids are using Sir Clive’s beloved invention to play games, wasting away their time on mindless entertainment INSTEAD of doing their homework. Clive is furious! He returns to the Sinclair lab to work on a dastardly scheme to get his revenge on the uneducated youth of Great Britain.

And now it’s up to you to foil Sir Clive Sinclair’s evil plan and set the kids free to play games on their new Sinclair computers. But quick - those nasty Commodore 64 owners are already beginning to laugh and point!

Project ZX is an old school shoot-em-up in the vein of classics such as R-Type, Nemesis and the Amiga favourite Project X.

But above all, Projext ZX was put together as a nostalgia trip for fans of the Sinclair Spectrum and features images and music from over 100 fantastic Spectrum games from the 80s.

All the included games can be viewed on a progress screen featuring details about the original software publisher and writers of the game together with screenshots and cover art.

If any of your favourite games don’t feature in Project ZX, don’t panic - there are certainly enough games left for a sequel!
