Welcome to another fun filled episode of RGDS

In today's episode Andy and Drisky review a modern game with retro gaming roots "Z-Exemplar"

The game it self is a love letter to the ZX Spectrum, with Its beautiful vibrant Speccy colour pallet, that takes you back to the good old days when the 8bit home computer ruled.

Z-Exemplar is a side-scrolling shooter which is the perfect homage to R-Type on the ZX Spectrum with a sprinkle of Gradius, Nemesis added to the gameplay.

This is defiantly a must have game, with its beautiful graphics , an awesome "AY chip" style Speccy music track and of course the addictive game play.

Graphics 5/5
Sound 5/5
Playability 5/5
Overall 5/5

Z-Exemplar is a 5 star game that every retro gamer should own!!

PC
Mac
