HALLUCINOR: An unexplored planet only recently discovered in the Spectralia Star System. Probe investigation records massive life readings and earth normal gravitational and atmospheric conditions. The planet has been marked for immediate priority colonization subject to clearance by robot team Prelim - 0484.A simple job they said, exciting but not at all dangerous they said.I mean things were O.K. for the first couple of months.There certainly wasn't much guarding to do. If a native did appear, a quick warning blast from my laser blast would send it scurrying away, but then ...As soon as the whole of the Tele - Portal network was powered up, they attacked, we guards tried to stop them but there were just too many of them...and now there's only me left, my control circuitry is damaged, I can't switch my motors off, so the only thing I can do to slow down is to slam the brake units on, but that doesn't do much good. I must pick up the fuel cells and go through the Tele - Portal to soak up some more energy, it's running so low, so tired... OH NO!!!Here they come again...H - E - L - P!!!!
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.
