ZX Spectrum Book

Post by Gazzapper » Sat Dec 22, 2018 3:04 pm

Hi All

Just thought I would post my book - for those that might not be aware of it.

A few years ago I wrote a book for ZX Spectrum fans and hobbyists called...

ZX Spectrum Games Code Club: Twenty Games to Code and Learn

Available here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/ZX-Spectrum-Ga ... 993474403/

The idea was to create a new book of Type-In listings geared towards explaining simple game dev concepts while also explaining parts of Sinclair BASIC along the way.

It was aimed at users that might not have done little or lots of BASIC coding, while also aimed at past coders that wanted to have some fun creating again on their Speccys. It was never intended to be a manual of reference book - it's a nostalgic activity book and can be used for fun or STEM learning.

Hello and welcome!

I've seen this book before, but have yet to buy it. It'll have to wait for the new year—unless I get really desperate in town tomorrow, and it can be delivered within 12 hours to my Auntie Doreen... :D

I purchased it a few months ago. It's good fun, though as the author says it aimed at beginners.

It did bring back that warm cosy retro feeling!

I did a couple of chapters on this book before starting Brexit: The Final Countdown for the BASIC coding jam some time ago. :D
