Long lost Dredd ZX Spectrum game found on ebay!

Most people assumed it hadn't been released. It appears they were wrong.

(...and no, it's not the Melbourne House one...)



More details and links to download the thing HERE.

You'll need a spectrum emulator.

...and for those who are curious to see it in action, but can't be bothered faffing about with emulators, someone's already uploaded a walkthrough video to youtube, (though it doesn't show the emails, additional info or two minigames you can access via Dredd's computer before you start)...

Can anyone recommend an emulator for Windows 7 or Android that will run it?  Yes I really am asking this at 11 o'clock on a Saturday night.

Me neither.

ZX Spin is a decent emulator, (and free), and should work with Windows 7.

"Judge Mortice"

I remember trying the C64 version of this disaster a while back. Ugh. Looks like the Speccy version's no better.

That opening music sounds eerily close to Paul Leonard-Morgan's She's A Pass from the DREDD 3D soundtrack. ;)
Whatever happened to Rico, Dolman and Cadet Paris? I'm sooo out of the loop.
