The classic arcade game by Toaplan came out in the arcades in the early 90’s and was a superb Bubble Bobble clone.
It featured 2 player platform fun which stared its 2 main heroes Nick and Tom, it was a game that really should have been converted to the ZX Spectrum since the 8bit conversion of Taitos classic Bubble Bobble worked really well on the home computers.
This game was origanally meant to be converted to the ZX Spectrum and screen shots even appearded in the magazines back in the day, but sadly the game never saw the light of day!
Until now! 2012! over 20 years later the game is now out for the ZX Spectrum!!!
The game is called Speccy Bros and was programmed by Climacus, Radastan and Shiru.
The game is 48k and its technical fantastic, since it plays and looks pretty much identical to the classic coin op.
Its only a one player game but that’s no big problem since the game play is simply superb.
You can down load the game from http://www.bytemaniacos.com/?page_id=1968 and you can also find a PDF art book there too.
