Awesome Best I've found so far! Now with the speed up feature, it's even better. Needs work for tapes with multi-load

Alexey Baskakov

Absolutely brilliant Thank for Unreal Speccy on Android!

Ivan Benishek

Some small things Cannot type sym shift plus m on small touch panel. Also cannot save snapshot in independent slot.

Andy Huxtable

Why is there only 1 button on most games when you need 2? One to jump and one to pick up stuff!

Robert Payne

Best RZX support... Fixed now. Hope a speed adjuster comes in the next update (60fps). Well done peeps.

Asuka NGE

Would love it if joystick(?) worked What more to say? on my phone keys too small and don't understand the so-called joystick option at all.

Tony Fell

Sounds Good Lots of good reviews, unfortunately it won't work with my android tablet (Cyclone Voyager II). Seems to load alright and when I press the menu button it shows the options, but unfortunately pressing any of the options just gives a quick flash of something (too quick to read) and goes straight to the screen showing the tape loader so I am unable open any files or change any preferences etc. This renders it useless to me I'm afraid.

Stuart Sinclair

Retro Gamer Absolutely cracking app, no problems with android. Top marks to the app maker. I also run the Marvin app also. All I want now is to play these games on my home TV...

A Google User

Er... ah... Kinda works with my 4.0.3 ICS SGNex... can't read or really use the keyboard in portrait mode though. Honest permissions, and I saw no ads.

A Google User

Custom ROMs Hi, great emu. My question: may i use a custom ROM? Where should i place it?

Mark Stubberfield

Wow This is very good. Has everything I could possibly want from a speccy emulator. Congrats to the dev!

James Wilkinson

Best by far... Works so well I started writing a program on it. Excellent speed, no tearing which most others suffer from. Good job.

Peter Cunderlik

Tablet controls I'm running various Speccy emulators on my PC and I was looking forward to USP for some mobile Turbo Esprit action but I can't figure out how to enter Settings/Preferences on my Android 4.4.4 tablet. Would be great if such basic functionality was documented in the App Description. EDIT: Unfortunately there's no "three dots" button on SM-T320.

Jonathan Arbuthnot

Perfect but needs a true full screen mode without the home bar buttons

izhar caban

Pardon if I sound dumb What systems will this program run exactly

Bob Smith

Not compatible with galaxy s5 The emulator is really good from my galaxy s4 days but as my new galaxy s5 has no "menu" button I cannot do anything in the emulator. I know I can attach a keyboard/mouse/joypad but I can't carry them around 24/7. I'm not going to give the app 1 star just because Samsung have messed up the buttons from working on my old s4. Going to have to use a different speccy app for now. Really hope this is to be updated with on screen controls. Thanks

Paul Davies

My new Spectrum emulator... I can't put my finger on it but this has everything I wanted from a Speccy emulator and more. Definitely worth a download!

Paul Dowsett

Brilliant emulator I love this, and not encountered any problems yet. Just one question - is there any way to utilise the other functionality written on each key of the keyboard? For a start, is there a way to backspace or delete what you have written (ie for text adventure games)?

Phil Woulfe

Galaxy Note 2 What can I say.. This is just pure nostalgia executed magnificently.. Fantastic emulator.. Who needs a PS4 or Xbox???

Lynn Hughes

How do I use this app? I tried watching the video provided above but sadly I don't understand what the commentary is saying as I'm guessing it's in Russian. Is their a link to an English version of the video please, thanks!

Chad Cunnington

Very Good Emulation Very good emulation of the old with very easy to use keypad, However, review would be higher if the keypad stayed visible for more than a split second.

Michael Taylor

Best This is by far the best spectrum emulator that I have tried. The fact that you can pair a Bluetooth keyboard and control is awesome!

Velibor Glisin

Excellent Most practical access to all kind of zx files, including rzx.

David Prescott

Outstanding Works perfectly on my Archos gamepad 2. Very easy to use



Anestis Koutsoudis

Crash on opening...pity

Darren Flinders

Simply Brilliant. I have to say for a free App, this is fantastic. I love my old vintage computers, and love to relive those old games, and this does a great job. I can't believe that it is free, I actually paid for the pro version of another spectrum emulator, but this to me is way more superior. Love the online integration as well, so you aren't stuck for a game to play, and you don't have to store the games or demos on a memory card etc. The spectrum 128 emulation is fantastic with faithful emulation of the AY chip too. If you are going to download any spectrum emulator, I recommend this one.

Ian Wilkinson

Super zx emulator Best out there by miles, you can go online to download games and also view games getting played!.. 5/5

James Spearing

Great But I'm confused - I only seem to be able to save once - am I missing something?

Darren Grainger

Fantastic ?????? What can I say I was a big spectrum lover back in the day...and to have a spectrum on my phone with all games...unbelievable ???

James Moss

Brilliant Does exactly what it was built to do flawlessly. A truly awesome app!

Григорий Лаптев

Everything is awesome. Everything works. Great application works on android (galaxy s4) & windows 8.1 Thanks.

Russell Payne

Just spot on, took me straight back to the halcyon days of eighties 8 bit.

David McGarry

Great first impressions! Only just installed it but already looks and behaves like the best Android Speccy emulator I've used... Thanks!

Martyn Southwood

The nuts Can't beat this one, it would seem the list of old school games is endless, nice one to developer

Marco Almenta

Custom ROMs Hi, great emu. My question: may i use a custom ROM? Where should i place it?

Hikaru Nakajima

It's a pretty nice emulator all around, I especially like the online integration. Good job! My only minor gripe is that the 'cursor keys' in vertical mode do not appear to do anything for me. That and I'm gonna miss the debugger from the PC version after all, I suppose =)

Bill Middlemas

Menus? Cheers, I didn't even know the 'Toolbar' was there! Sorted!

Gavin Rae

Best Spectrum emulator for Android!!! Runs perfect, absolutely perfect!!! And it's free!!! Keep up the good work :) (Nexus 9)

Димка ТО

Gr8 Job! Great Emulator!I wish You Will Make Other Emulators like this!Great App!

ian piercy

Best Spectrum App Love the app gave it 5 stars only problem is it needs a multiple save state so can play other games and save those ones too

Michael Smith

Unusable on samsung tab 4 android Can't get games to load loading either cuts out or stops loading altogether.Cannot find keyboard it just disappeared also freezes games will not save .

Ivan Benishek

Only one save slot Make "SAVE AS" option.

Dean Risley Jr.

Great app Just wish you could access pokes or there was a poke database. Emulation works perfectly.

A Google User

Great app with massive selection of games

Paul Potter

Excellent The best Android Speccy emulator

Garry Weston

Great app Thanks for sorting the compatible version for the s6, works perfectly.

Simon Ferré

Nice solid emulator. Just wish sometimes the keys were easier to assign, and the small keyboard in Portrait mode is difficult to press (Landscape fine) but just one small question. When you save state where do any saved files get kept? I would like to take a program I've written on the emulator and use it on my laptop without retyping the whole thing.

Davey Dixon

Is it just me? Whenever I press the menu/options button on my Galaxy S6 they flicker on and off very quickly so I'm unable to choose anything from the menu or load a game, for example.

Jason Channon

Banging!!!!! Love it. It's not perfect....but emu's on pc's aint either.

Nik Barbour

Really nice emulator. Been using Xpectroid previously, but this has a cleaner UI. I love the direct link to WOS, and the landscape joystick/keyboard toggle. Really nice job dev.

Aziza Digby

Couldn't work it There are no instructions and I couldn't get it to move on from the first screen.

Paul Jacobson

I've tried a few and I've stuck with this one. One of the best mobile speccy emulators on android. Would love to see custom OS ROM support and random rzx mode so I could use it as a fancy digital picture frame on my tablet :)

David Forrest

Works fine, found lack of memory on phone causes problem If it stutters when loading a game, move files, such as photos, onto a memory card and all should be fine! The best free Spectrum emulator I've found

Emma Howsam

Omg I'm recommending this to my dad

Darren Noyce

I have this on my Samsung Galaxy Alpha and can't use it as there is no menu button

Alexey Baskakov

Absolutely brilliant Thank for Unreal Speccy on Android! Chromecast support would be awesome!

Fuoco Serpente

Cool I can actually program this in speccy basic :)

Steve Haigh

Great nostalgic fun The emulator works really well with great integration to download sites to find any game easily. I would really love to be able to change the keyboard overlay opacity, though, as I have a JXD s7800b and mapped the keyboard overlay to various hardware buttons but whenever I use this, the keyboard reappears instantly, blocking my view of the game.

Konstantin Yeliseyev

Good try Found almost all my demos in ZXAAA storage and got them worked out of the box. This is great. Also not bad that my phone is cold after two hours of work and the battery charge still in a good state. But I didn't find how to switch between zx models to adjust multicolor effect and I didn't find how to enable emulation of General Sound. Anyway thank you a lot and good luck! /Hacker KAY^NUCLEAR INC.

Frank Triggs

Tape AY bug. After loading, tape doesn't stop and AY doesn't play. Have to stop tape manually for AY to be heard. Also ZXAAA link doesn't work here.

Phone User

Best spectrum emulator. Really needed an extra option ''TV horizontal scan line effect'' .

Julian Jimenez

Very nice emulator Very nice emulator. My favorite speccy one so far. I just wish the joystick settings were a bit more customizable. Especially in landscape mode. Like being able to add more buttons and position them. Edit: sorry, I can't read your reply and don't know how to translate it.


Probably the best around Only 4 star due to the fact that I can't work out how to save progress. This is essential for games such as the wild bunch. A game I was never able to complete as a child...

Bill Middlemas

Excellent! That's all I have to say!

Dave Wray

Samsung Edge? Can't seem to see menu bar for the Samsung edge

Michael Stone

Great emulator Only one issue is I can't change it from keyboard to joystick no matter what I try. Am I doing something wrong.

Aziz Khalafli

Good job! USB keyboard not working inside spectrum mashine, hope it will be fixed soon, goodluck!

Austin Schultz

Menu doesn't work on S6 Seemed like a emulator, however there is a major problem. Whenever I swipe down to access the menu bar and click the files button, it opens for split second and then closes, leaving me back at the zx spectrum home screen with the keyboard. Please fix!

Sean Warren

Just needs +2A & +3 emulation and a poke database Best free emulator for android just for having a start/stop tape feature plus it seems to load more games than the Marvin emulator the only downside is you can't put pokes or cheats in plus no escape key or F1-5 keys! otherwise really good

miljan zunic

emulator i think this is first software with five star from me. great!!!

BarrelsOfun dotcom

Great Best app ever, good old manic miner

Murat Erguvan

Nostalgia The good old days...

Tim Prowse

Would be the top spectrum emulator Just needs landscape view and virtual android keyboard. Plus where has the save state gone?? And what is the star for at the top of the screen? Also +2A would be great too! Would be good if you can define the keys for the onscreen joypad thing. Best part though is the tape start/stop feature bcos on most other emulators they're still loading in the background and u can't get to play the next levels/parts so well done USP. Need help with what is the best sound setting for Xperia E3. AY/YM, ABC, Drive A, etc?
