Welcome to Spectrum Computing

Thank you for visiting spectrumcomputing.co.uk. This website allows you to search for software and hardware created for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum which is an 8-bit personal home computer released in the United Kingdom in 1982 by Sinclair Research Ltd.

This site is not a replacement for the popular World of Spectrum website. Its purpose is to show what is possible with the ZXDB, and to enable interested parties to learn how to implement ZXDB themselves.

Einar and others are actively working on ZXDB and it now includes releases post 2013 (Which was the last time new titles were added to WoS), as well as magazine links for Crash, Your Sinclair, Your Spectrum and Sinclair User.

A big thank you is due to the following people:

  • Einar for the creation of ZXDB
  • Ricardo Nunes who has done a huge amount of work implementing Bootstrap across the site and developing many site improvements
  • Pavel Pliva who built the pagination, and provided us with access to all his maps
  • Hik for his work on the new games
  • Dmitri for his GifCreator software
  • Everybody who has contributed to the WoS infoseek database over the years.

Things are still very much in development, but we are very pleased with the progress made so far. We hope you enjoy the site, and look forward to your feedback.
