Welcome to episode 12 of The Spectrum Show. In this episode we go back to February 1984 for all of the Sinclair news and latest Spectrum game releases. We compare Missile Command clones to find the best Spectrum version plus there is the usual old and new game reviews.
Here are the unused reviews Alex Ross-Shaw wrote for The Spectrum Games Bible, Super Trux and Draughts Genius are from the 1980s, while the rest are all modern, homebrew releases.
"ZX7" by Einar Saukas is an optimal LZ77/LZSS data compressor for all platforms, including the ZX-Spectrum.
Available implementations of standard LZ77/LZSS compression algorithm use either a "greedy" or "flexible parsing" strategy, that cannot always guarantee the best possible encoding. In comparison, "ZX7" provides a highly efficient compression algorithm that always generate perfectly optimal LZ77/LZSS encoding. Technically it means compressing within space and time O(n) only.
Claus Jahn released ZX-Preview v2.2, ZX-Paintbrush v220.127.116.11, ZX-Editor Second Edition v2.2 and ZX-Blockeditor 2.2 for PC/Windows.

The comp.sys.sinclair crap games competition started in 1996, when a competition to create the crappest game possible for the Spectrum was decided upon following a suggestion by a visionary known only as 'Blood'.** Inspiration came from the most buttock clenchingly bad compilation ever: The Cascade Cassette 50, the exciting inlay and advert betrayed a sorrowful collection of unplayable BASIC games created by uncredited 14 year olds paid £10 for their trouble (which they possibly used to buy the cassette!).
The competition is in its 18th year and is so highly regarded across the world it has a page on Wikipedia.
