Their is also a programmer contest that will run all year. And the grand prize will be an original genuine ZX81 kit. See the following web
In March 2006, I will release my best program so far, "ALIEN MIND". With better graphics, better animation, it is truly a more the ZX81. You can select from the list the emulator of your choice to "ZXENIUS", etc... which can be downloaded free.
"ALIEN MIND" is an original brain game. During the game you are facing a wall dotted with shelves with or without boxes on them. Some boxes are useful, some boxes are useless, some boxes must be moved and some boxes must not be moved, but all the boxes can fall of the shelves.
A small alien living in a two dimensional world can walk on the air and must successfully push the "X" box unto the "X" shelf. He can only push, one box at a time.
The program is entierly and only written with Sinclair ZX81 basic. It features 30 different levels to solve and uses a 32 X 24 screen, but it requires only 16kb of RAM.
