My Memories Playing Orbiter

Playing games on my ZX Spectrum meant that I had to hijack the family TV in the living room and set up my ZX Spectrum and load games by cassette.

Later, I managed to get a portable black and white TV in my bedroom which wasnt quite as good as playing on the family TV but had the benefit of allowing me to play anytime.
