ZX Spectrum

Written by Barry G. Posted in Consoles


The ZX Spectrum earned the maker Clive Sinclair a fortune, a knighthood for "services to British industry" and a lasting place in the national consciousness. Huge numbers of Spectrums were sold around the world, making it by some way the most successful British computer ever made. The Spectrum was the longest-lived Sinclair product, eventually appearing in seven distinct versions produced over a six-year period the original Spectrum 16K and 48K with the infamous rubber keyboards (1982), the Spectrum+ (1984), Spectrum 128 (1985), Spectrum +2/+2A (1987, 1988) and the Spectrum +3 (1988). The Spectrum was among the first mainstream audience home computers in the UK, similar in significance to the Commodore 64 in the USA. The hardware limitations of the Spectrum imposed a special level of creativity on game designers, and so many Spectrum games are very creative and playable even by today's standards. The early Spectrum models'  great success as a games platform came in spite of its lack of built-in joystick ports, primitive sound generation, and colour support that
was optimised for text display.
