New Zealand ZX81 programmer

Post by Bukster » Thu Sep 13, 2018 9:10 am


I'm from New Zealand and thought I should join this forum to swap ideas and publicise my games. I've put a number of ZX81 programs together. My most well known games are, "Masada Class" written in 1994 and a ZX81 version of Jetpac I finished earlier this year. I'll put some links and more info for them in the New Games section soon.

I have a 40 hour a week job and live on a small sheep farm so I don't have as much time for programming as I'd like.

Welcome @Bukster!

I Loved Jetpac so would really enjoy playing a version of that :-)

Sounds like life keeps you busy but there's always room for retro 8-)

Hello Bukster and welcome to our forum.

Have a good browse around the forum.

There are various members producing new software for ZX81/TS1000 machines (and some even for the ZX80).

We very much welcome new contributions :D
