People are still making stuff for the Sinclair related machines. Tell us about new games and other software that runs on the Spectrum, ZX80/ZX81, Pentagon and Next.

I haven't played it, but rather than generating a random number on demand to add an object, it always makes for fairer gameplay if a list of needed objects are randomly distributed to fixed places at the start of the game, then the game designed so that they can't be disposed of until they're used. Just like shuffling a pack of cards, rather than generating a playing card at random when dealt.

Great new version of the classic Bruce Lee:

Spruced up graphics and it's still a joy to play.

Thanks for the heads up chaps. I've neglected the initial games list post. I've added most of the missing ones, and need to sort out the links for many.

Some stats for the year so far (there will be a few games missing):

Total games: 68

By genre:

Action: 24
Adventure: 3
Management 2
Platform: 10
Puzzle: 4
Shmups: 7
Text Adv: 16
Utililty: 2

Not counting PAWS or QUILL, how many are made with game designers:

AGD: 18
SEUD: 3
MK1/2 3

And 11 games were 2019 entries for the ZX-Dev 2018 competition.

Thanks for th info, Dave! Hmm seems that the rythm of creation of new games has slowed down a little bit, although we are still missing Halloween and Xmas, two of the most prolific periods of time for new releases :)
However, I think the quality is still really high!
