Latest ZXDB Update July 08, 2024

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 uses the popular open-source ZXDB database which was created by Einar Saukas for use by the whole ZX Spectrum community

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, Sinclair User and many more.

Please note that you can't search for X-rated titles via this site. They are not omitted from ZXDB though, so we suggest you use a site like ZXInfo to search for such titles.
