What is the G-Tech interface?

G-Tech is a special joystick interface what can solve the using of analog joystick. It can be plugged into the Kempston interface and the other side to the analog joystick now it works. It has 2 working mode what can be selected by a switch. In the digital mode the joystick works like a traditional micro-switched joystick (no more problems buying or repearing the old joysticks). In the analog mode it sends the real position data to the interface where the games can read from.

It helps to write new games with this new chanches! Think many old games what was hard to play because the key press handling wasn't too comfortable. This game is the first which uses it but maybe other developers will use it.

What about ROM extension?

This ROM extension is a special 256K ROM what contains the game with more than 192K extras what are used in gameplay. It works with Interface II or other compatible types. Just plug in and the ZX-Spectrum 48K is not a simply 48K machine anymore! The special paging technology helps to access the game more memory!

What are the differences about cassette and ROM version?

The main game is absolutely same. It detects automatically the ROM being and uses extras or not. The ROM extension gives more suprises and fun! The playing time is longer around 3 times, new levels, lots of speech.

Is it working on emulator?

The cassette version is working fine but the emulators can't use this special ROM extension or G-Tech yet. Hopefully they will know, all information is available to developers.
