About This game

The Game

“Nothing” is a ZX Spectrum 128K port of the PC game created by JoelLikesPigs for the Ludum Dare 45 competition.

“You start with nothing.”
The game takes the theme quite literally, by starting with no controls, no music, and no sound, and then rewarding your progress by gradually releasing various upgrades, some of which are crucial, many frankly useless, but still fun to discover 🙂

Compared to the original PC version, this port extends and upgrades the original further. The game is now much longer, has more levels, and contains many new upgrades for your character. And, of course, the ZX Spectrum version invites you to have new adventures and explore new locations where everything around you will try its best to kill you.

A New 4-way scrolling engine has been developed specifically for this game, with the speed and performance that are unprecedented on ZX Spectrum. If your ZX Spectrum clone can run the game in turbo mode (7 MHz or more), even better quality graphics will be enabled automatically.

– It’s just like a PC game, but improved and extended?! Are you kidding?

No, I’m not.
Turn on your ZX Spectrum and see it with your own eyes!
