The Sinclair ZX80 and its decidedly upgraded update the Sinclair ZX81 were the two computers that brought, uhm, computing and with it computer gaming to the masses. They were affordable, small, good looking, user friendly and desirable enough to kick-start (at least in Europe) the 8-bit craze and -especially after the release of the ZX81- help create the early gaming industry. What's more, more than a few classics like the brilliant 3D Monster Maze have been released for the things and even the homebrew community is still active working on them.
Happily, us retro minded Wiz owners can now relive the glories of the early Sinclair computers on the go, what with the release of the brand new ZX80/ZX81 emulator ZXGP2X. You can download it for free from this place and find out more about it (and download it again) here. Mind you, this is an excellent emulator that supports the stylus, comes with a highly customizable virtual keyboard and features everything you could ever ask for to run any ZX81 game.
