SPECTRUM IS SLOWED DOWN
HAVE YOU ever wished that there was some way to slow a game so you could get past the first screen without getting zapped? if so your wish has been granted by Cambridge Computing with its new Slomo device.
On the front of it are two push buttons, a rotary speed control and an LED.
One of the buttons is used to stop the Spectrum and the other activates the speed control.
Slomo lends itself to a number of uses. For the games player it allows that extra edge while the machine code addict can use it to see, if it is on screen, the code working step by step. Listings can be slowed and anything normally too fast can be set to a manageable speed.
An ingenious device and reasonably priced at £14.95, from Cambridge Computing, 61 Ditton Walk, Cambridge CB5 8QD.
