ZX81 Masada Class Game: This is a prehistoric Bukster game from the 90's written for my first computer, a Sinclair ZX81. In this game you play the part of a Masada type robot battle craft. You were abandoned in space after a war in the 22nd century. now you are called back into action after an alien invasion. As usual for these sorts of games - you are Earth's last hope.
Part of challenge for me was to see if I could make a decent game with only 16 kilobytes of memory. This game features 6 stages and in game messages. Early ZX81 games hardly ever had features like explosions when an enemy was hit or a pause function. I wanted to do something better.
This game is available for free download. The download comes in .t81 format for use with ZX81 emulators that support it.
By the standards of the games that came out when the ZX81 was a new system, this looks pretty good. However a number of other programmers have continued to produce games for the ZX81. Now that you have an emulator, be sure to check out some of their forums for games that make this look pretty lame. There are some very skilled people out there and I salute their efforts. The ZX81 was not an easy machine to program on.

Hall of Shadows If you like maze games, then this is the game you have been waiting for. In this game you have to find the exit to a huge maze. Pick from four maze sizes and six monster difficulty levels. The mazes are generated by the computer, so every new game has a unique maze to solve. Save and load your games if you can't finish a game in one session.
Fight monsters, pick up treasure, armor and health potions. Trade with the maze fairies for the things you will need to solve this maze.
The smallest maze gives you a game you can play in five minutes, the largest would cover a wall in your house if you could see the whole of the maze at once.

Now includes a whole page of photos of some crayfish with eggs and young on their undersides. There is also a page with some short Youtube movies showing the crayfish in action.
