Just click on the word "aqui" on the message :)

"Aqui" means "here". If you have any problems downloading it (it works well here), just let me know.

Are there any gameplay screenshots of this game? Showing just a loading screen doesn't give much info what's it all about.

In Speccy.exe ,i cannot replace ''0' with 'A' (0 for fire).You cannot redefine the keys, you only write on at the 1st-screen,the keys.(5-left,6-up,7-down,8-right,0-fire)
Why you must write the keys at message at first screen ?
Because the keys or inkey$ , became the fast-way for playing your game.
Other ways (kempston, sinclair, joystick...) may be not work fine other emulators(fuse.exe, unreal.exe,fuse-linux.,).

I don’t have a list right away, but not every emulator can run the game. Tested on a real machine, a zx Uno and Spectacular.
