Introduction

At the time of initial creation of this page, this was the ONLY ZX80 software page on the WEB. I have several files from the ZX80 and will transfer them as soon as I get time. Some will be "type them in yourself" and some will be in a format which can be loaded via a utility.

SPACE INVADERS

Due to the problem of screen flicker on the ZX80, this machine has very few fully animated games. It keeps the display stable(ish) by regularly calling the display routine, in effect, emulating the NMI of the ZX81. I have no idea where the game originally came from, so do not know who owns the copyright. I have searched many old magazines but I can't find where it came from. If you know, please contact me at my eMail address at the end of this page, and I will add the acknowledgement.

The listing shown below I had on a cassette tape and loaded it into my home-made ZX80. This is dumped straight from the screen of this ZX80, so I know there are no transcription errors.
Type in the following (save regularly!):

Type RUN to start the game.

Here is an example screenshot from the game:
