Just like to say that the ZX Spectrum Homebrew scene is still in full swing at the moment with some very interesting games being released this year,i make it just over 80 games so far for 2012.There are 4 games which i am playing at the moment which i would like to recommend to anyone who has not yet seen or played them just give people some idea of what is going on in the scene at the mo.If you need emu get ZX Spin 0.7 (http://www.zophar.net/sinclair/zx-spin.html)

If you like a game similar to Haunted House (A2600) then try this-
Yumiko In The Haunted Mansion (http://members.inode.at/838331/index.html)

If you like boards games then this chess themed minesweeper type puzzle game is as addictive as hell,move your King around the board while avoiding the other pieces on a hidden board,read the warnings when you are in a chess pieces attack path and then select a tile they could be hiding to elimanate them.Download V1.1 as the newer version alows you to turn on/off beeper and the Ay Music.
Chessboard Attack V1.1 (http://www.worldofspectrum.org/infoseekid.cgi?id=0026121)

Thanks for the tip off I've tried all of these. I didn't get "Yukimo in the haunted mansion" and really liked "Chessboard attack" and "The lost tapes of Albion".

On of my favorite modern spectrum games is mushroom man (http://www.worldofspectrum.org/infoseekid.cgi?id=0023117). It is a really really really addictive puzzler.

I've already completed Hobbit (Vah-ka`s Cut) on my second go. I'm a bit of a Mojo Twins fan but their games can be a bit easy. My latest 2 youTube walkthrough videos are Subacuatic and Subacuatic Reloaded. I might make Hobbit (Vah-ka`s Cut) my next youTube video as I'm still finding Skool Daze a bit boring to complete. Why does it take Mr Creek so long to spill the beans on when his birthday was sometimes.

I'll check out the others though.
