Homebrew Adventure 'Willy The Wasp' Stings The ZX Spectrum

Willy-The-Wasp-ZX-Spectrum-HomebrewWith Summer just around the corner we'll soon be fending off those pesky wasps as we attempt to enjoy the sun. That said, they'll also be invading our gaming systems too following an all new homebrew release starring an unlikely hero. Willy The Wasp is the latest title to hit the ZX Spectrum in the most colourful fashion.

Instead of chaotically stinging everything in your path - at least for now - WIlly The Wasp tasks you with navigating a half platform, half flying adventure where our protagonist needs to replenish his deadly venom. With 50 vials left around the area, you must carefully dodge the various insects in your path and collect everything you can, all with the aim of landing on an unsuspecting victim's head.

What makes this all new ZX Spectrum title worth checking out is its incredible visuals. Featuring no colour-clash whatsoever, Willy The Wasp seems to push the microcomputer's visual output to the absolute limit with countless colours on screen at once.

As usual, those with a DivIDE or similar device should indeed check out this homebrew release on the original hardware, whilst everyone else can enjoy it via emulation.
