Welcome to the ZX81
Archive. This site has been put together in order
to preserve the ZX81. The Machine which was my
first computer. There are plenty of sites relating
to the follow up machine the ZX Spectrum but not
much on the ZX81. I will over time add to this
site information & images as and when I find
them. Some people may look and think what a boring
machine the ZX81 was. By today's standard and
indeed by standards 2 years after its launch it
had become, but at the time this was an affordable
machine that meant that people could own their own
computer. Having a machine that could be programed
to print the times table was quite interesting!!.
It may seem silly now but it was great at the
time. I can remember coping a hand written program
from some one at school and looking forward to
getting home to program it in. When the great
games like 3d Monster Maze and ZX Galaxians came
out it moved to another level. Included on this
site are images of some 1000 zx81 programs stored
in "p" files. Alot of these are silly
mathmatic programs which was because you could do
them. But there are some real Classics as
mentioned earlier along with many more that if you
had one at the time will bring the memories
If you have anything you
would like to donate please let me know. It may be
some tape or even a scan of a magazine. Anything
is greatfully received.
My copy of VB81 the ZX81
emulator was out of date and now at version 1.30.
Thanks to Chris Cowley for his excellent emulator.
Its a long time since an
update but never mind. To be honest nobody has
sent anything for me to add. However here is
something you will all like. Its Michael Orwins
tape 4. Go to the P Files
section to find it.
Something new!!!. Martin
has sent me his new ZX81 game. You can find it here.
Glad to see it Martin. Anybody got any more??
I recieved another new p
file for adventure 200 from Foilkade
Software - written by C.J.Coombs sent by
Patrick Beilby and Derek Parkinson. Apparently it
took them 20 years to complete. I though I was
slow at games!! Anyway its it the "p"
