In the entry for Platoon, Smokey Robinson's song Tracks Of My Tears added as an extra is wrongly referred to as Tracks Of My Fears.

Zagruvaetsq is "Загружается", which actually means "Loading" :)

Judging by screenshot:
Programmed by I.B. Klokov from St Petersburg (ex-Leningrad)
Updated (Adapted? Remade?) by D.I. Filippov from Moscow
Disk version by THD

Warrios Revenge

When I peek this title on the database, (https://zxinfo.dk/details/0010381) it is marked as MIA, but the TZX for download is there (and works), so, perhaps it WAS a MIA on WOS?

Also, check the game, it is adorable.

Dead Zone was released this year, not 2018: http://zx-dev-mia-remakes.proboards.com ... 7/deadzone

Also, the name in ZXDB needs updating from Deadzone. It's now referred to as Dead Zone. See the later posts in the above thread, plus the cassette cover, instructions, loading screen and in-game screens.

The Star LC200 Colour Printer was "published" by Star Micronics, not Datel Electronics.

Dingo: https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=27162
Has a tie-in/inspiration "Dingo", but the liked site is no longer there: http://www.kov.com/game_detail.php?game_id=7586

It should be klov.com rather than kov. This affects every entry that has an arcade licence link, not just Dingo.

All those games recently added from that Santa Compilation I preserved, should all have Top Spec as originally publisher, and not just publisher of the compilation. This is not a compilation of previous released games, but a compilation of games released on one tape by Top Spec. Hope this makes any sense :D
