Alright, which of you jokers is cluttering up the IFDB with Spectrum games and not giving download links? You're only making my next Spelunking game statistically less contentful.

Spoiler: show
I am, of course, having a giraffe. Kudos to the Paul Equinox Collins for the good work adding to the database.

Aww, I was meaning to do the next Spelunking game. If only because I could ensure cover continuity.

Ooh, please do! I always aim to write the games that I would want to play, and so I would play another Spelunking game in heartbeat.

You can always find a Spectrum game on http://www.worldofspectrum.org/textadv/index.html.

Why no one ever links to it, I don't know. Copyright issues? Not wanting to overload WoS' bandwidth? No-one ever thought to?

I'm guessing the latter. As an experiment, I've just added the download link for one of the games uploaded. If I'm still alive this time tomorrow, it's probably safe.

Great work, Joey. First you suggest and advocate a post-it note (that, on closer inspection, wasn't even a post-it note) as a permanent forum logo, and now you've got the Spectrum Police breathing down our necks.

Okay, fine. I'll do 2, you do 3, and I'll draw half-assed climber cover art for the lot of 'em. (Or for anybody else who wants to play too).

Whoever writes them, I insist on being able to start each Spelunking game with all of the items I collected in the previous one.

I added a download link to Journey to the Centre of Eddie Smith's Head a few days ago and it is still active.
