So the SCFQDC (Spectrum Computing Friday Quiz Disciplinary Court) has sentenced you to stay in a punishment cell with an insurance salesman. No right to any kind of appeal.
I survived the insurance agent, it was a sharp lesson :)

It was hard to think, that it wouldnt work with the best and most accurate Spectrum emulator. ;) Thanks for the file, btw... didnt know about this version, just for this great Konami arcade port: SpecEmu is one of the best emulators, no doubt! But when I tried th...
