The Raspberry Pi Promises to Be the Ultimate Retro Gaming System as This ZX Spectrum Emulator Port Shows

By Sam Gibbs on at

There are loads of things you can do with your Raspberry Pi, once you’ve actually got it in your hands that is. You could turn it into a media centre; use it as a mini web server; build a NAS for streaming media with it, or even pack it full of emulators for the ultimate all-in-one retro-gaming machine. Now that’s what I’m talking about.

Andy Taylor from the UK Computer Museum has used his spare time to port over Fuze, a ZX Spectrum emulator, complete with Manic Miner. While I’m only just old enough to remember the tape-playing Spectrum, even I’ve played Manic Miner in one form or another.

I can’t wait to see what happens when people get set about porting over emulators for the SNES, Mega Drive and even maybe the N64 to the Pi – it really could prove to be the best plug-and-play retro gaming system ever, and for only £22-odd too. [Raspberry Pi]
