ZX Planet - Spectrum Heaven! - SPEC256 Emulator Review

Can you remember 10 years ago when the owners of some other 8 bit computers? (Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC) used to call the Spectrum for having rubbish colours? well not any more because thanks to these guys the games you love to play have been converted into glorious 256 colour.

Imagine yourself playing your Spectrum games with 256 colours. Yes, you´ve read well. This is what SPEC256 can do.

This emulator will only run with games that have been converted to 256 colours. Currently there are 12 titles that have been converted and they look excellent.
