Rare Spectrum Game i'm trying to locate.

Before getting my A600 I had a Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128k with built in cassette drive.

I had a platform game on it called Wizard Willy which i'm trying to locate.

googling for it has never been fruitful over the years i've periodically searched.

any ideas?

There was also a lightgun multigame cassette that had missle ground zero, bullseye and two other games on it. would love to find that too!

EDIT- Didn't know if this was suitable for retrogaming section as it's non amiga, so posted here... feel free to move it there though if it's relevent

Hey Diablo,


I have a full spectrum romset that probably includes it. Do you want the rom for emulator use? Or are you actually looking for the real deal?

If memory servs, those games came bundled with the spectrum+2.. You should look for something like Spectrum/sinclair Action pack.

Yup just looked up which one i had, it was the +2A

Alot of emulators, dont require you to type LOAD "".
Simply select your .tap file (or which ever you have) and it auto loads.

I personally rather none flash loader, to hear the cool screeching noise. Ah memories. My wife thinks Im nuts, sitting there for 20 mins listening to screeching, lol.

Never heard of it. I only own around 100 speccy games though.

Got that too. The games on it were Missile Ground Zero (played that lots), Robot Attack (another great game), Bullseye, Operation Wolf (awesome game), Toy Bizarre (didn't play that much as it kept crashing alot during gameplay) and some target shooting game based in a park.

I would personally recommend any of the following games to play/buy:

Turbo Outrun
Operation Thunderbolt (sequel to Operation Wolf, but not light-gun compatible - I tried it to make sure!)
Ghouls 'n' Ghosts (128K users - make sure to use the right side of the casette that way it loads it all in one go!)
Quadacanal (if you love real-time strategy games - GFX are almost non-existant though!)
Star Raiders 2 (less than 5 minutes to load and hours of gameplay)
Ghostbusters 2 (some levels are hard - especially the last one, but it's awesome)
Robocop 2 (just as hard as Ghostbusters 2 in places)
Vigilante and Double Dragon (if you love beat'em ups)
Joe Blade (though no point if you already own the Amiga version!)
anything by Andy Severn (&e7) - awesome speccy coder, produced some cool bonuses/Speccy demo's.
Hard Drivin' (very very hard, but cool. How they managed to find room for the 10 second replay data I'll never know!)
Earthshaker (Boulderdash clone)

Good old Speccy also forms an important part of my young gaming years. My first game machine was an Atari 2600, but a Spectrum + 48k was my first real "computer". I bought it with my own savings during my first year at collegue, that was in the mid 80's, to make programs for a course of statistics aplied to psychology, but in no time I was also using it for gaming... a lot!

A handful of years later I skipped to a disk based +3 model, so I never had a cassette equiped machine. When it broke (early 90's) I went directly to my first Amiga, a second hand A500... and the world would never be the same...

Being myself more adventure than action games oriented, my list of favourites include such isometric classics as:

-Movie
-Great Escape
-Fairlight I & II
-and of course, spanish big hit "La Abadía Del Crimen", which was my most intense inmersive experience of the 8 -bit era.

For a 2D stunning fantasy enviroment, Avalon and its sequel Dragontorc were just great. And then there was the text adventure field, where Melbourne's Tolkien adaptations as The Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings were just groundbreaking for its age. Sadly Infocom classics never made their way into the Speccy (there was no way to make them work from a tape, anyway, though there is an aplication to play them in a +3) but Speccy users didn't miss the rest of the Big 3, that's to say, Magnetic Scrolls and Level 9 works, all of them I strongly recommend.
