A downloadable game

Melkhior's Mansion, for Windows PC, Spectrum Next and ZX Spectrum 128k.

A fast paced, action packed throwback to the classic games of the 80's, in 15 glorious colours, hand picked from the infamous ZX Spectrum colour palette (we left out bright black!)

Guide Sir Stamperlot the knight around Melkhior the Wizard's house of horrors, or choose to play as one of his trusted companions, Lester the clumsy Serf, Zouch the green haired Witch or perhaps the elegant Princess Ashby.

Your task is to find the pieces of the key that will unlock the main entrance to the mansion, thus granting our hero, whoever that may be, their freedom from Melkhior's evil clutches.

More details to follow, watch this space!  Coming soon to Windows PCSpectrum Next and ZX Spectrum 128k......

Hey bob... if you are in contact with Kev Brady please ask him to reply to me here. He taught me to code about 25 years ago and we lost touch.


He’s on Twitter and has his own Melkhior’s Mansion link, so you should be able to find him.

His 9bitcolor account has disappeared?


Oh. Sorry, I don’t know then :(

He's illusive. I know he hates to have any kind of online presence. He taught me Z80 machine code and 68000 back in the 90s. I still have a z80 pocket reference book he gave me. Not spoken to him since 1997. If you speak to him again please mention that Steve Leary from the Islands was trying to find him lol. 

Got hold of him ;) Thanks


Wow this looks A Maze ing.




looking forward to this 😊


Thanks! It’s a long time coming, but hopefully it’ll be worth it in the end.
