He resides in the present, he's been to the past now he must travel to the future...

What an unlikely hero! You are a window cleaner. A common, little window cleaner. Yet you discover, more due to your notorious curiosity than by mistake, a time machine in your chiefs back office. Strange? Absolutely. Your adventure in the past and the future is about to begin. The quest? Four words: Evil aliens. Beautiful girl.

This is a remake of one of my all time favourite game's Future Wars for the Commodore Amiga. However its been made as it would of looked on the Sinclair Spectrum. Confused? This is kind of an experiment just to see if I could create a ZX Spectrum game and if the atmosphere of the little black box could be recreated. Iíve mixed graphics, sounds & game play elements from various Spectrum gameís this demo version lets you play the whole first level. If it gets any good feedback I will finish the game.

The Spectrum look and feel of it is excellent - what I'd really like to see changed are the huge number of apostrophe mistakes in the text (particularly on the title screen). It may seem like a very small point, but it becomes annoying very quickly.

Could you upload a non-installer version?

Thank you, SC. This is a very nice job!
You succesfully recreated most of the spectrum-feel
