Saboteur 95: The 8-bit Retro Remake

Saboteur95-8-bit-remake

Saboteur was really big during the 8-bit gaming era, and, at least to my mind, it reached almost mythical proportions. It was, you see, a game I first played only a few years ago, but one I kept reading about for over a decade. Surprisingly, it now seems as if the Greek gaming press was -for once- right. Saboteur, still a great game and a very balanced platform, adventure, beat-’em-up hybrid that can be as addictive as any contemporary time-sink, must have been quite a shock of grandeur for ZX Spectrumgamers.

To experience said shock (play an original version of the game, that is) you could grab a free copy from the brilliant World of Spectrum mega-site, but, should you be one of them delicate souls that can’t stand true retro colour-clash graphics, you could do worse than download the brilliant freeware Saboteur 95 retro remake.

Saboteur 95 is fully Windows compatible, sports shiny 16-bit 320×200 graphics, 400 rooms, secret areas and a lovely 2D variety of enemies. Oh, and there are CD-covers, patches, maps and a variety of ..uh.. stuff available for it too.
