Best clones for ZX81

Post by Its1982again »

Been trying to create a file for the TZXDuino containing all the best clones for the '81. Anyone got any suggestions? Currenlty got Paul Farrow's zx80 kong, ZInvaders from Cronosoft, QS Scramble (although I also have a Spanish/Portugese version somewhere!), Just included Dr Beep's 2paxman, and Hi Res Beserk(along with its block graphics cousin!) I have got loads more games on sd cards but only wany a library of single games on this file. Suggestion please........... Dave

I wasn't sure about including Lode Runner as it didn't originate in arcades. But it's absolutely excellent.
