ZX Spectrum game1985
Okay, so I was only 14 at the time. But I did write my own game, “Frank the Flea”, in ZX BASIC and sold a respectable number of copies, on cassette, by mail order!
Originally written as a birthday present for my brother, the game was fortunate enough to receive a full-colour review in Crash Magazine, which sparked off a run of mail-order purchase requests.
Frank the Flea now lives on as a playable snapshot on the internet, and has recently resurfaced as one of the 1,000 titles built-in to the Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega console (YouTube review of the game here).œ
Made with: Sinclair ZX Basic
