Speccy – ZX Spectrum Emulator for PC and MAC

Definitely not the best. This Spectrum emulator comes in last place among many Android Spectrum emulators in my view. It works, but choosing not to blur the screen makes the screen far more blurred than my old 14" PAL TV with HW acceleration enabled, (Nexus 7) so adding scan lines (not available in the clean, but slow software rendering) just makes things worse. Flash loading only works for non-protected tape files and loading noise is either painfully loud or non-existant. Managing tape loading is more capable than others (notably Marvin wont let you skip ahead or rewind, which is a pain if you need to load levels or such) but far more complex than others. Using a BT Keyboard should mean I don't need the overlay, but I can't get rid of the on-screen joysitck and such. Many game files just don't load. USP, or Spectalator are vastly superior, but Marvin still beats this hands down. I can't see what the advanced options are without paying, which isn't much of an advertisement and I wouldn't pay on the basis of my experience of the free version. The additional systems (Coupe and Pentagon in particular) should be great, but not with this fuzzy a screen.

Good apps Sadly I have to buy the vgba again

Help Tried To Play Groggs Revenge But Couldn't Start/Load It. What Is The command word?

Excellent, shame about the touchscreen A really amazing speccy emulator app that's only let down by the frustrating fact that you can't feel where the keys are when playing games but such is the tablet versus keyboard state these days. Now if we could get a blue tooth set of 6789 & 0 speccy keys to work with the tablet, all would be well n good! :-) Thanks for an amazing step back to 1985 n beyond.

Works great Is it possible to load a custom ROM?

Great Fantastic emulator. Had much trouble getting 'Knight Lore' game to work but eventually got a non corrupted ROM version to work. Developer did apparently reply but for some reason I couldn't and still can't see that reply here once I clicked on the email link (yet I've seen replies elsewhere on Google Play store which is strange) - Galaxy Note 3, KitKat 4.4.2

Memories Takes me back to when it all started

Pretty good but.. The download box feature doesn't work for me. I tried it with mobile data and wifi but nothing happens

DEVELOPERS..PLEASE DO NOT SPAM MY INBOX Does not work. Only takes you to the buy the full version page. Waste of time. Much better apps out there that play the epic retro games. And to your final reply mmmmm I have tried that and other stuff. I have found another emulator which is excellent and I have uninstalled this one.

ZX spectrum The thing is that the TR-50 thing drives me nuts but my ram is still 127.75

Poor Unusable, keeps sending me to the Play store app or just freezes. Uninstalled.

One obvious mistake spoils an otherwise excellent app Please change the colour scheme on the virtual buttons - cream writing on cream buttons is hard to read.

Optimus G E975 - Xperia Z Colossus chess 4.2 for ever.

Best ive tried Better than the other emus ive tried you can stop/rewind tape, fwd loading and the emu seems perfect..miss the proper joystick image for the overlay like with Marvin...good job

Has to be the world's worst spectrum emulator. I'm amazed that this is on the market, let alone that it constantly nags you to pay for a paid version. Few games I've tried run, some get tape loading errors when loading from tzx files, sound is ragged and games crash. And we're nagged constantly to pay for it! Amazing.

Bad It doesn't work and they will not refund the money

No star for this I have used the desktop version of this, albeit an older version, and was pleased to see this development. But its functionality is too limted. I tried some of my own softwear that works on a real spectrum and it wouldnt load. I had created successfull software for the spectrum back then. I think this app has posiblities, however there can also be improvments. I dont mind the adds but the constant nags to pay for it is a problem. I will wait and try again at a later time. Uninstalled.

Not the Best "You get what you pay for" is a bit of a tired mantra these days, it seems. Two other Speccy emulators, Marvin and the USP, are infinitely better than this. Both are completely free. Yes, this is also free; but this doesn't work fully. It's merely an advert for a version that supposedly does work, a version that would struggle to match Marvin and USP even if it does. Unimpressed.

Scam app You cant run ANY game from WOS unless you buy the full version! What use is an emulator that cant run games? Also, hitting BACK takes you to the top of the list, not to where you were.

Free version is bad nagware App constantly nags you to buy the full version. Several features do not work until you pay. App cannot run any titles from World of Spectrum until you pay. If I could actually try the app out then I would consider buying it but certainly not when basic functionality does not work unless you pay. Shameless nagware.

misbehavior, app want update, i not don't force user to update app, when google play was opened, i rated and uninstalled your app

Keyboard Who seriously thought this keyboard design was a good idea? I can't even make out the keys on the spectrum load screen, let alone text adventures. Uninstalled.

Lot of bugs I can't use on motorola defy plus. Slow menu responses, sometimes the main screen disappears. However it would be one of the best app, because i haven't seen specy emu, in which you can change the keyboard layout. (It doesn't work for me, if i rotate the phone) Please fix it

Games don't load I've downloaded several games but hardly any of them run? Other emulators load these games fine. What's going on ?

Doesn't work. No longer loads games, going back to Marvin for my speccy fix.

Galaxy note Cannot load games, but I can conclude that the problems with all spectrum emulators in the market its the keyboard and respective controls

Good - a long way down the right path for me Starting to look really good. Excellent that it is still being worked. When a full speccy keyboard and Plus D interface come along it will be perfect and I'd be more than happy to pay. I know they are on the to do list. Keep up the excellent development.

Good but Good, works well with lots of games, but I won't purchase it till I can get the number keys on this Xperia mini pro to work, they're shifted.
