Sadly I couldn’t attend this years classic gaming Expo – Replay, but many of my friend did manage to make it up want he windy north and have been enjoying all of the various pictures and video from what looked to be an even bigger event than last year.
One thing I did miss was the the release of a new game for the ZX Spectrum called Dingo, which is a remake of a classic arcade game from the early 80’s. It’s become quite popular with a few of my Facebook friends and have been keen to try it out myself.
A limited run of 50 cassette versions of the game was released at Replay complete with custom inlay artwork and also signed by the games artist Mark R. Jones.
For those of us unlucky to own a cassette version, the author has released the game in digital format for playback via emulation on the World of Spectrum website –
you can also find out a little more about Dingo at the authors page – (including links to download a PC version of Dingo)
For myself, I though it’d be fun to try and get the game to run under the ZX Spectrum emulator for iPhone/iPad called ZX Spectaculator. I had to mess around with the specific configuration file for this game to get the control mapping correctly and it still needs a little tweaking.
Here’s YouTube video I made showing the game running on my iPad using ZX Spectaculator ver 2.0
