You might find z88dk useful for FZX too.
Unfortunately it's of no use to me because I cannot code in C.

Questions about FZX

1. How do you change the color of a text block printed with FZX? The INK command does not work. 2. Is there a way to implement FZX in ZX-Basic (i.e. "Boriel's Basic")?

Cinque doni sotto l'albero - wrong genre

Cinque doni sotto l'albero is erroneously listed as a Strategy: Management title. It is a logical quiz game instead, where the player has to guess, starting from some clues, which gift was given for Christmas to each one of five characters (the title means "Five Gifts Under The Tree" in fact).

Is it commercial only? No free download?
No, the game is only distributed as cassette + CD-ROM with files for emulators and/or memory card-based interfaces.

It is offered together with a revised version of Death Pit by Clive Townsend, of which Doom Pit is the official sequel.

Also try Bloodwych, the closest you can get on the Spectrum to Dungeon Master.
