ZX Spectrum Software - Daley Thompson's Decathlon - Clamshell Case. Original Sinclair Spectrum software from Ocean Software Ltd. First released in 1984. This is a classic Sports game.Although this software has been tested on my own Computer setup, that is still no guarantee that it will load on your own setup, as with titles, machines and cassette players of the era, being particularly 'selective' in their loading systems (tone, bass, volume, fast loaders, compatibilities between machine releases and tape degredation). You should accept this listing as 'sold as seen'. With any ageing magnetic / storage media of this type from that era, there may also be no guarantee that, even if this software successfully loads on your own system now, that sometime in the future, degredation through ageing could cause it to fail, and this must be accepted. No returns or refunds on any Retro Software Titles is accepted on final sale.
Original release retro games such as this one, complete and intact in their own case with inlay and instructions, and in good condition are becoming very rare and highly collectible worlwide.
This piece of Sinclair Spectrum software is no exception and is a great example of the style and inventiveness of it's era.
Buy this now and own your own piece of history. This software has NOT been tested.(SOLD AS SEEN, NO RETURNS).
All items are posted in either padded jiffy bags, or securely wrapped in brown package/box for shipping. Plastic cassette cases are intact when sent out, and being fragile and may unavoidably get cracked in the postal system, which we will not be able to replace, so bear this in mind should this happen.
Hints for successfully loading cassette games from retro cassette players. Best to ensure tape head and rubber roller is clean. Sometimes it is just a matter of adjusting the volume (some players have tone and bass controls also) as the recording on the magnetic strip can fade over decades of storage. Again, as storage of the cassette can cause the magnetic spool to shift 'off centre', the tape head alignment may need adjusting slightly. Thats all part of the retro experience from the 80's.
