For some reason our 1986 Mastertronic ZX Spectrum game Zub keeps on popping up in various different ways lately. Maybe the gods are trying to tell us something?
First of all here's a completely faithful remake of Zub, playable in a browser. This little nugget of goodness has been sat in my inbox since late October, waiting for me to blog about it. Click the link or the image to play the game.
In April last year Rob at Gameshot emailed us to ask for permission to do a Flash remake of Zub. We don't own any rights in Zub so weren't in a position to grant or deny permission anyway, but it was nice to be asked so we gave him our blessing anyway, for what it's worth.
Over a year later and it's finally complete, and it looks pretty much 100% accurate as far as I can tell. The game was always way too hard, so I can't even get past the first level to check if everything else is right, but I'm sure it is.
