Very Poor

I bought this app maybe a week ago for nostalgia reasons and to show my partner as unbelievably he had never heard of it. It took ages to download the game and I did manage to play although the controls didn't work accurately but have since been unable to play again I have tried every day and all I get is a message flashing 'is downloading ' but it never does I once left it like this for over an hour to no avail. Do NOT buy it's useless

Never mind the quality, feel the nostalgia!

There might be some issues with bugs but this is a trip down memory lane, it's just like I remember it. Who needs PS4 quality graphics, sound and quality when you can boot up a spectrum...brilliant!

Here's How To Use The Controls ...

... in the app select "Settings".

In "Settings" select "edit" iDaptive Controls.

Review the on screen instructions.

Select "Touch Here To Continue".

Modify the controls, for example by changing them from 'Joystick' to 'D-pad', by following the previously displayed on screen instructions.


PS: there's a video about this at a well known web site. Find it by searching for 'ZX Spectrum iDaptive Controls'.
