The ZX Spectrum 40th Birthday Game Mix Tape

The ZX Spectrum is 40 years old today. So what better way to celebrate than with a mix tape of Spectrum games? The ZX Spectrum 40th Birthday Game Mix Tape is a cassette-bursting collection of 40 games from 29 creators that you can buy before April 30th.

Better still, proceeds from the sale go, Humble Bundle-style, to a very good cause: Special Effect. This is a charity that aims to improve the quality of life of the physically disabled through videogames. You should visit to learn more about this amazing project. At the time of writing, the mix tape has raised $3,582.00 of its $4,800.00 goal.

40 ZX Spectrum games is undoubtedly a lot. Then again, for just $10 and a warm feeling in your heart that you’ve done some good, this is possibly the bargain of the century so far and certainly the best way to honour the genius of the late Sir Clive Sinclair.
