I timed it on a 48K, to never flicker.

I did not try it on any 128K.
I can check that, and see if I can make it go away on a 128K

Could it be an issue with the emulator ?
Have you tried it on a real ZX ?

I don't have a real +2A or +3 I'm afraid. It's possible, but the flicker is the same on SpecEmu, Spin and Spectaculator.

I'm sure it will be just a tiny timing adjustment. 128K and +2 grey is also perfect.

Very impressive - especially the graphics, did you use a special library to give you better colours?

Nope, all standard ZX colors with typical color clash in 8x8 blocks.

You can see a bit of color clash in the the Stone Jokers background, when starting 2 player mode, if you look for it.
During the game it's just "mind tricks", to use color clash to our advantage.

I intend to do a video session, of me playing the arcade with a friend, so that you guys, can understand what this game really is about.
Speed !!!

Most videos available online, do not make it justice.
