Cyclone: ZX Spectrum 1.0 ZX Spectrum Game, As Develop...

The ZX Spectrum is an 8-bit personal home computer released in the UK in 1982 by Sinclair Research Ltd, which sold in excess of 5 million units worldwide. More than 10, games were released for the ZX Spectrum.

Cyclone for the ZX Spectrum (one of fewer than 200 ZX Spectrum games being re-released as a Windows 8 app) is one of THE defining games of the 1980s.

The Cyclone: ZX Spectrum by Elite Systems Ltd app is the near-100% original ZX Spectrum game, as developed by Costa Panayi and published by Vortex in 1985 and is brought to you - as an officially licenced product - utilizing our ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection HD technology.

About Cyclone: The player controls a rescue helicopter and must retrieve five supply crates from a collection of islands, while a cyclone is in the area causing havoc. While searching for the missing crates, the player may optionally earn bonus points by rescuing refugees from the islands. There is no limit on the number of refugees the helicopter can carry, and the player does not need to return to Base Island at any point to unload either refugees or crates. Hindering progress is the cyclone itself which, which can cause the helicopter to behave erratically at long range, and crash at close range. While over open water the helicopter must avoid low flying planes which traverse the screen occasionally. The player also has limited fuel - which can be replenished at helipads on several of the islands, and a time limit in which to retrieve the crates. The screen display warns the player of the cyclones proximity, any approaching planes, and also the remaining time and fuel. The view has two aspects of North and South to switch between, which is necessary as some of the crates are hidden behind buildings or terrain. There is also a map view to help locate the cyclone and the islands. Once completed the game loops, with no change in difficulty. Costa Panayi also coded Tornado Low Level, Android, Android 2, Highway Encounter and Revolution.
